duplicolor metal cast. they look like OEM 2000 tails. No need for clear coat, they have a nice shine to them




UPDATE FROM TODAY
Sick of the 98 badges. I've ordered 2 new 06+ ranger emblems with the blank piece under it. Today I got decals made just like i had on my red trucks emblems that say "Off-Road"

old truk


This ones going on the tailgate because it doesn't have alignment pins



oh yeah i got an ohc today too and sprayed it all black lol

So you go from doing all that work to the ranger to a bronco that gets hella bad gas mileage? especially right now when gas prices are so high?

yeah? problem? i made 900 profit off of the ranger after all the parts i put into it. I don't worry about gas, rather drive something i enjoy than a shitty ranger that i bought as a mistake. I'll get another ranger but with lower mileage and red paint once i turn this truck around for a profit too

what i did to the ranger
inner/outer tie rods
upper/lower balljoints
new upper control arms
brakes all around
drivers side wheel bearing/hub assembly
front and rear differential flush
tranny flush
coolant flush
power steering flush
air filter
oil change
replaced carpet

thats not that much work really, routine maintenance for something with 195k
