Default My 2001 XLT

This is my 2001 Ranger XLT. I love the the old skool look and the mini truck look as well so here is my start to that. I am going to put a 4/5 drop kit on it. Then someday i am going to bag it, but here is how it sits as of now. You can see the progress of my truck on cardomain.com/Low-Life1972.

That is so cool! Has the old hot rod look. I thought about doing mine like that but keeping the blue color. I just can't find a good flat blue.

You can buy them that way but there pretty exspensive {650-700 dollars}. You can make your own wide white wall by just sanding or grinding a small layer of rubber off but have to be careful. You can do it to any tire that has a white wall or raised letters.

Well, there goes that idea. Guess I'll have to rat rod the '56 international S-100 now.

Nice truck, dude. Looks good. Love the matte black and red steelies. Just needs a slam and some wide whites....

They look great, definitely look like something you would buy brand new.
