That's a really clean truck. I would only change a few things. Ditch the bullbar, ditch the color coated bug shield(that's not that bad actually) and get rid of the decals on the bed.

I'm actually thinking about taking off the Ranger 4X4 and just putting a 4X4 sticker there.

the bull bar is covering up a gaping hole where the guy who installed the body lift cut the valence. So I think the bull bar is staying. i am going to get some piaa lights. do you think that will make it look better?

Maybe. I really just don't like bullbars though. But it's your truck. You do what you think looks good.

Great looking truck, but yeah loose the bull bar. IMO they only work well on trucks that have tons of lift. It's killing your approach angle.
