Default Spruceing Up Old Red

Slow but sure I,m trying to make the Ranger look a little better. I painted the grill black. And the person that the truck before me turned the white letters inside so I fliped them out and cleaned them up. There was 1 chrome wheel molding missing so I took the other 3 off. (I know I got to get that front bumper up an inch or so.)

Looks 10x better bro. Keep up the good work! Why are there 2 antennas? What are your future plans? Lower? Lift? Stock?

The other antenna is for my amateur radio gear. I,m not sure what the future plans are for it yet. Just taking it day by day. I,m looking for a NON wrap around bug shield right now.

glad you took the chrome wheel well things off, I hate those things, I would have left the grill red though, if it were mine I'd be looking to drop it 2/3

Nope, the grill looks much better black imho. Breaks things up more and the chrome wheel well covers look like crap. Nice job - looks great!

A bug shield that is only as wide as the hood. That does,nt cover the fender.

Well, I just thought the Red grill was just to much red. I needed to break it up some. I,d like to find chrome grill and bumpers for it like it had from the factory.
