i dont know what posessed Ford to put those god awful graphics on the side, but they are hideous! Other that that overall nice truck man, i miss my 94 Ranger!

My suggestions:

Lose graphics and bar behind cap (Free)
Tint Windows (around $120 is what i paid for 5 windows)
ditch those wheels in favor of MT Classics or American Racing Bajas or something of that nature (Check CraigsList, we found a set for $200 up there a few days ago)
buff paint after removing design (Free if you do it yourself)
BFG A/T tires 32x10.50 (about $170 a tire)
Paint all plastic (moulding, bumpers, bumpercapsn etc) in Kyrlon Fusion Satin Black (about $10 worth of paint)
Get clear Headlights and do back headlight mod to them (around 60-80 dollars)

i think you would love the truck even more after doing this:

It wouldnt cost a whole lot wither

thats not a popular mod with our gen, we just buy new lights since ours are usually fogged to shit and being faceted makes it worse.



gen 3 ftw!
ditch the bar, and the graphics and itll look 100x better alone

That is because all STX trucks got those graphics.

Not all STX's got those exact decals. I think that only the early third gens got that style. My 96 STX got different decals.
