Nice truck!

I would ditch the chrome mirror caps, and do the headlight mod.

I agree with fordzilla...ditch the mirror caps...

Maybe make an investment into led spot lights... other than that, I wouldnt change a thing!

While im thinking about it, a buddy of mine had a 2005 ranger just like yours that he used to take mudding... he found out the hard way that the intake runs really low (on the passenger side I believe), and he hydrolocked the motor by going in a little too deep. Luckily we had the tools to pull the plugs and turn the motor over to get the water out. There was no damage, but he did trade the truck in shortly after...lol... you may want to swap out the intake, or at least pull off the part that drops down below the filter...

I have ordered all the part to swap my truck to manual locking hubs and I will be locking the front end. Also I have painted the mirror caps black and a few other little things. I'm still debating on if I want to paint the headlights. It's just a pain to have to put them in the oven and reseal them
