He put euro tails on it. i wanted euro tails on it when i had it bot not ones like he has...i want all clear ones, he got the ones with all the red circles in them. Also, im a christian, but that sticker looks horrible on the truck... he also took the bedliner out (why ill never know) also he put that gay trun down chrome tip on the exhaust!

Thats one of my fears. Seeing your vehicle being turned by someone else. Thats why I'm keeping my Ranger for life. I would rather have it die by me than abused by someone else.

This is why you develop emotional connections with people, not mechanical objects.

After what my ranger and I have been through, I find it hard to not develop feelings for it. I've put the poor thing through hell and it's never let me down. It's really hard to find a person that can do the same. I like my truck more then I like most people, it would be hard to watch someone drive off in it for good. But I'm kind of a softy, what can I say....

Frankly I think anything other than stock taillights are kinda stupid looking.

The aftermarket tails draw attention to your vehicle

NO attention is "good" attention

And FWIW the "all clear" taillights are a ticket waiting for a cop to a working pen
and his ticket book...

I can only barely remember the last vehicle I sold that left me as a running vehicle.

I feel the same way with my CBR. I would hate to see it stunted or parted out. I just my Ranger and already starting to develop that feeling as well.

the only ranger i ever sold running finally met up with me 4 years later. i was taking parts off from it in the junk yard. it only seemed right to de-badge it and make a plaque for my bar. i used a piece of oak and mounted the license plate i ran on it, the dice that were in the window, the badges off the fenders, and a picture of it in its prime.
