Looks like a solid truck. I usually prefer the look of tube bumpers over the plate style bumpers but I like how you kinda integrated both styles in your front bumper.

Looks good! Why are your mirrors half way down the door though?

Do you mean halfway down the length of the door? That's where they were when we bought it.. That's where the hole is. Are they in a different spot on other trucks?

Ha! Just noticed that. On my 93 they're right where the A Pillar meets. No clue about the older model; I guess I never noticed if that's normal or not.

I do love the look of this truck. I was hoping it would give me some ideas but it's leaf, not coil (Blast!). Looks fantastic though!

Your mirrors are in the right spot, that is just how the first and second gen ranger's mirrors are.

Thought so. Are they the stock mirrors for an STX truck? There's small holes and a not-so-faded spot lower down on the door like it might have had the swing-out aluminum mirrors at some point in it's life..

They are that far back to accommodate the trucks that came with vent windows
