Smile Bitzy's "Build"

Hi guys. I created this thread mainly to show off my ranger and post pictures of it. I dont plan on doing to much mods but some little stuff will get done here and there.

First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Jaden and I'm 15 years old. I'm very athletic and participate in a couple sports at school (Basketball and Soccer). I also pay for my gas by mowing lawns during the summer and occasionally snow blowing driveways in the winter. I'm a 4.0 average student and ahead a grade in math. I plan on getting a job that involves computer programming when I've graduated high school and college. Oh, I forgot to mention that I have a twin brother too.

Me.


Now onto my truck. My dad gave me the option to get a truck or a car for my first vehicle. I decided to get a truck for lawn mowing, which was the best decision I've ever made. My ranger was purchased with 118k miles and currently has 122,500. It had a Spectre cold air intake installed when it was bought and had a drop in bed liner but other than that it was completely bone stock.

Here it is right after buying it.


I've got to give my dad a big thanks. He helped me with almost everything that has been done to it so far (and payed ). The first thing that me and my dad did was buy a Avis bug shield and Rain guards.



Me and my dad were debating whether or not to get a tool box or a tonneau cover. We ended up deciding on getting a tonneau cover. We got one from Truxedo.


We both like chrome a lot. So we decided on getting some spyder chrome steps. They dont serve a whole lot of purpose but look good.


After that we tried restoring the stock headlights but they were melted from the inside. I chose on these headlights because they were clear and went well with the truck. Imo.


I finally did a mod all by myself. It was the Throttle Cable Mod. I added two zip-ties to the throttle cable. It actually made quite a difference and Im happy with the results.

Now for some random pics.












And how its sits today.


Please be respectful when talking in my thread. I am open to constructive criticism and complements are welcomed.

I forgot to mention that we replaced all the stock speakers with 6x9 Eclypes's. And it was bought with a Pioneer head unit already installed.

You could paint just the inside of the oval things. Best of both worlds

Nice truck. I've always modded mine a lot but the stock look looks pretty good. I also agree on new wheels but to each their own.

I was going to paint my stock ones but I just went with a black wheel with ribts in them. But I've seen a lot if those wheels painted and a couple different ways too.

Looks great Jaden. I'd stay with the chrome theme for your truck. To be honest, the factory wheels looks pretty good on it. You could always do some research to see if you could find a different wheel that you would like and ask us for our opinions. Keep up the good work.
