thanks. yeah blacks the way to go on a black truck. that shiny chrome would just look weird. i spent forever checking CL for a black one and just gave up and decided to paint my own. and yeah low profiles the way to go. the other ones just seem to bulky to me.

Looks good man!

I personally think chrome looks like crap on Rangers. Sure looks good on my F100 though.

May I ask if u primed it with self etching primer under that black paint? If not have fun stripping the chipped paint and redoing it.

I know this because I thouroughly researched painting aluminum when I painted my aluminum Jon Boat.

If u didn't do it I'd recommend go ahead and stripping the paint and picking up a couple of cans of Nason black self etching primer from oreillys.

Not being mean but trying to help ya out
