Due to having a bodylift and him using the bumper brackets to raise the front bumper to stay level with the body, and the integrated bumper/valance the 2001+ trucks have, the body moves up and the towhooks stay in place as they are on the frame, the valance/bumper would have to be hacked into to keep the towhooks at their stock location.

exactly, the change in the front end, and in the paint is a result of bad accident in december, it was about 9000$ damage... i don't even want to know what the damage was to the 335xi? that i hit...

the grill was put in so that i can have lights behind it, that doesn't block ALL of the light... and the choice of that bumper, is so that i can take the valance off, without making it look terrible, by having the 2 drop sections around the fog lights in the first picture... this would allow me (origionally to have higher ground clearance before the lift) but will allow me to use my tow hooks without having to take my bumper off, as that is illegal here... as for the paint, the entire front end had to get painted anyways, so i tossed the body shop a few more dollars and paid the extra labour to have it sprayed a second colour...

thanks for all of the compliments, it's been a long process, and of course, it's not done yet...

Looks good.

What did you do with your tow hooks? If you still have them, do you want to sell them?

i'm starting to get the notion that the majority of people on this site have pre 2001 rangers eh?

also, is there any code that i can type in, (in addition or conjunction with the img code) that will limit picture size? all of my newer pictures are uploaded in 1830x1372

Looks good.

What did you do with your tow hooks? If you still have them, do you want to sell them?
i do still have them, they are in my garage right now, and will probably be going back on (and the vallance off) for this weekend when i take it offroading, for the first time since i got it lifted... i'll post up some videos of last time i went wheeling in a little bit...

That gave me an idea for mine. Very nice truck man.
pré tell...

damn.. i like that hood idea.. any better pics of it??

thanks..
of course i do! lol



(fogs are white, not sure why they look yellow here)

i thought i had a few more than that... guess not... anything in priticular you are curious about how it looks? like angles and such? i can always grab more off of the truck

Will you consider trading me your chrome ones for my black ones since you only use yours for off roading?
