Well I picked up the truck exactly a month ago today. In that time I've put on 1700 miles and have done quite a few little things to make my driving experience more enjoyable
Here are some pictures for those interested.
Here is the truck in the condition I purchased it in. Pretty much stock except for the toolbox, rims/tires, and some power windows and door locks the previous owner added.
The first thing I did was paint the grill... It was pretty hideous with the fading gray and I thought about replacing it but decided to just paint it black.
I also performed the blinker mod while doing this so the corners flash in addition to the usual blinkers and they alternate when the parking lights/headlights are on.
Yesterday I installed the OHC I picked up from a guy named Orion_134 over at rangerpowersports.
Today I installed some silver face gauge overlays.

I also did the relay mod so I can have my high beams at the same time as my headlights and hard wired my radar detector to keyswitch power. I plan on hardwiring the GPS as well in the same manor but waiting on the cable I purchased off ebay (has an adaptor that converts +12vdc to +5.5vdc)
I'm picking up a spare HVAC control and plan on changing the green to blue on it to match my gauges and radio. I am also picking up some dual lighted mirror visors to install. Hopefully picking up an explorer shorty center console as well and going to hack up my 60/40 seats so I have buckets with a true center console.
Still need to find a good place to mount my CB and get my antenna + mount so there will be plenty more pics I plan on adding to this thread in the future
