    Now you have to swap out the tail and clearance lights for some LEDs they are well worth it. I bought Trucklite brand lights the 4 inch gromet mounts were cheap it looks like you have the 2.5 clearance lights they are not bad either.

    I like the red with the white lettering looks good.

    Anyone else running aluminum dumps? How well do they hold up? Seems like a good looking way to increase payload. How does the price compare?

    Sweet truck by the way!

    I have a line on 3/8 inch Teflon sheeting and I will line the alum with it.
    Was going to get steel but the increased payload and the longevity convinced me alum...needs to be lined though.

    Hey Guys,

    I am looking at a 98' Ranger as my starter truck for this summer. I am looking to just get a ramp welded onto my truck or just get two single wheel ramps. I am also planning on building a platform to put in my truck so that it is level with the wheel wheels. I may end up buying a trailer next year if I feel that the buisness is there for me. I just plan on putting a Craftsman or Cub Cadet 42" Zero Turn in the back of my truck. Let me know what you think guys.
