There is no perfect vehicle. If you’re a fan of automobiles you ought to know this. There are always small details that can be changed. Upgraded. For some of us, there is no real customization if the changes aren’t massive. Do you agree with us? Considering that you’re reading this article it would seem that we’re on the same page. Now, we just need another coincidence. Are you interested in customizing your Ford Ranger 2023? If that’s the case, you should continue reading this piece.
Don’t get us wrong. Ford Ranger is one of the most complete trucks out there. If you look at its Raptor version it is an intimidating piece of a truck. We are big fans. But, that doesn’t change one small fact. There’s always room for improvement. We are all in for every piece of customization there is. After all, why not improve on perfection? If you’re a proud owner of a Ranger you know that there are areas where you could see your truck strive for greatness. Or maybe, you’re lacking ideas? If that’s the case, just stick with us for the next few paragraphs and check out what we’re talking about.
So, as we already suggested there are many areas where you can improve your Ranger. As far as we’re concerned, every customization needs to start at one point – the grill. Check out how to pull the first move.
That’s right. You should start with your grille changes. One could argue that the basic version of the Ford Ranger doesn’t appear to be intimidating enough. If you’re using your truck for off-roading you need to add that extra-menacing touch. That can be done with a slight grille update. But, we are not all for additional experimentation. No, instead we would go for that extra touch but remain in Ford’s backyard. Do you get where we’re going with this? That’s right. Don’t update your truck with just any grill. Update it with a customized Raptor style Ranger grille. Now, that’s a fine idea, isn’t it? Yes, it is, you’ll add that extra touch to your truck, and make some eyes turn around, but remain loyal to the homegrown company. That’s the way to approach customization in this department. Let’s see what else you could do.
Once you have your grille replaced, it’s time to move on with the front-end revamping. One of the best ways to do this is to install bull bars. These two installments combined are the most popular accessories you’ll find out there for your precious truck. We would even argue that one shouldn’t be done without the other. What’s even better is that you’ll provide your truck with additional protection up front. So, you are going to get that menacing look, your truck will be sturdier, and bulkier, but your grille, headlights, and even the cooler will be massively protected.
If you’re really into trucking you ought to take excellent care of your truck bed. We are sure you’re doing it. But, if you still haven’t paid enough attention to that area this is the ideal moment. It is funny how most trucks don’t come with original bed covers. You need to install this accessory on your own. Luckily, that’s no hassle. But, it will do yourself and your truck longevity a massive favor. So, if you want to avoid water and debris constantly covering your truck bed and eroding it on the way, installing a bed cover is the route you must take. In addition to keeping your truck nice and tidy, you’ll also receive another unexpected trait. Your truck will become more aerodynamic thanks to the cover. A smoother ride is what’s in for you from now on. All that is left is for you to choose which type suits your truck and your needs the best. You can go with a roll-up cover, which is our favorite, or you can choose one of the tri-fold options. Of course, there are both soft and hard covers. Plenty of games left in this department.
Let’s not forget our youth. Back in the day, young ones believed that the only way to customize your ride was to shake up the wheels and bumpers. That’s not the truth, but it’s where the fun can start. If your Ranger is not all up to your imagined standards you can add that nice touch of change by changing its wheels. The best part about it is that the number of options you have at your disposal is vast. Everyone and their mother is into wheel customization. It is such a small wonder how the appearance of a truck can be changed drastically by only changing its four wheels. You have many customization houses that operate in this domain, so if the wheels are what you intend to change we’re sure that you’ll find plenty of suitable options.
In the paragraphs above we have covered many of the big and immediately noticeable upgrades that you can bless your Ford Ranger with. But, arch kits can also make a big difference. Not only that they’ll make your truck bulkier and more intimidating, they have a practical purpose. Arch kits tied well with the wheel upgrades. The more work you put in on the arch part the bigger wheels you’ll be able to position under them. There is a great correlation between wheels and arch kits so when you’re doing one upgrade make sure that you cover the other one too. That will make your life much easier.
That’s right. If you have grown up on films such as Fast & Furious you know that it is important to upgrade not only your engine but your headlights too. The best way to do this is to choose a LED type. What makes the Ranger so easy to upgrade is that it comes from Ford, which offers plenty of brotherly vehicles from which you can borrow a thing or two. So, if you opt for upgrading the headlights for your Ford Ranger we suggest that you try out the Mustang-styled version.
