Default New Ranger

i bought this ranger a few weeks ago from the dealership i work at i havent had a chance to get any great pics but here are a few i took with my phone




the tool box isnt bolted in yet i just set it in there for the picture.

i was thinking about getting a back rack for it and painting the box black, also i want to paint the rims black for the winter until i can buy some nice rims and bigger tires for it. i also want to paint the rear bumper black and put some black sport fender flares on it. what are you guys thoughts what else should i do or do differently?

Great looking truck dude! As far as painting the bed/box black, I suggest a roll on bedliner. I did a herculiner in the bed of my truck and it only cost me 60.00 bought off ebay. my truck is older so I had alot of prep work but you dont have to worry about that with yours. Painting the wheels and back rack is a good idea though!

You would probably need an extra quart of it for the tool box which will be more expensive than painting it
