The lights are made by Hella and they cost $60. Got them at walmart. I like them cuz they are very thin so i was able to drill out the hole and after bending my arm in way i thought it could not LOL i bolted them in place. If you get them i recomend upgrading the bulb. They were 55w and they sucked.

Sorry, for the late reply been sorta tied up. I put Rancho RS 5000s all the way around. I had to make an emergency trip to my mothers earlier this week and took a short cut down a rough dirt road, ... I can say this they ride even better at faster speeds down a dirt road. lol They simply soaked up all the bumps.

If i am not mistaken a factory Ranger center cap will fit, as long as you keep the shoulder style lug nuts like you have. I have seen Crager Soft 8s with them as well as D hole style rims. Check this thread http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...d.php?t=233585 Google Ranger factory center caps on Crager soft 8 wheels and you should find even more.

Finally got her lowered this weekend. All I need now is the 20" generation 2 adrenalin rims. The Trac is sitting on a Explorer Express 3" lowering kit.

So I got bored, and I decided to see what a red grill would look like on a white ST, along with black trim, basically what adas has. I took the picture from jeremyc653 because I do not have mine yet, I will be getting it within the next week. But this is what i'd love to do to mine, tell me what you guys think.


This was all done on photoshop btw..
