My favorite generation Ranger is the 2nd. I like the upgrade! That is the exact same color combo my Gen 2 supercab was.
With the tire size difference, your speedo will read 10% slower than you are really going.

Thanks guys. I did notice that at 55mph on the speedo its more like 60mph actual speed. I have no real science to back this up, just more of a "feels like" thing. I do think the truck seems to ride and drive better.
