Wet sand the scratches out then buff it if they aren't too deep. And just pull the brush guard hang it and bedline it.

I forgot to add that the tires are cracking along the outside. Is it dangerous driving it with them like that?

I'll most likely leave the the scratches on the paint alone until summer but I do like the idea of bedlining the brush guard. Maybe I'll do that some time this weekend.

They've been on the truck since I got it 3 years ago. I don't know how old they are. They still have a lot of tread though.

Nice car man! It looks good. Hate you had to trade the truck but every one can agree that a good reliable car is hard to beat. And a 2013, man you are set for years to come! Congrats!

Sucks you got rid of the ranger but as much of a lemon as it was you made a good move. Good luck with the focus!
