Looks good! I see your front bumper is sagging to the rear, mine does the same thing and I can't figure out why. I pushed up hard when I was mounting it, but that didn't seem to help at all.

well i had to use adaptors. i also have a 84 monte carlo ss and i had the rims for that and when i got my ranger i wanted rims and i could only find cobra rims for like 600 and i had the vette rims so i spent 125 on the adaptors to put them on. about the bumper.... the truck has manual steering and the guy i got if from ran it into his house and bent it up

Those rims look sweet on there! I think it'll look even better lowered further.
