Addictive Desert Designs Beefs Up 2019 Ford Ranger
Catalog of parts for the Ranger includes new front and rear bumpers, rock rails, chase racks, and even a bed-mounted spare tire carrier.
The 2019 Ford Ranger is available in two drivetrain configurations, two body styles, and three trim levels. You can get it with regular four-wheel drive or take that to the next level by adding the FX4 Off-Road Package which adds features such as an upgraded suspension, more rugged tires, skid plates, and a locking rear diff. Unfortunately, you can’t get the Ranger in Raptor form (in the U.S., at least). The good news is that there is a variety of companies out there that offer parts you can use to make the 2019 model more badass.
One of those companies is Addictive Desert Designs, a business “born from an addiction to push the limits of design and a passion for customizing vehicles and a love for the desert.” As of right now, its assortment of parts for the Ranger includes:
A cool new replacement front bumper is a quick way to add attitude and utility to a truck. ADD offers three powder-coated bumper styles for the Ranger: Stealth Fighter, Stealth R, and Venom R. They’re all compatible with the truck’s available adaptive cruise control system (with some modifications and a relocation bracket) and can be ordered to accommodate the Ranger’s available front parking sensors.
Each section of the bumper is made to fit auxiliary lighting. The end caps can fit lights and, depending on which style you choose, the middle portion can house up to 10 cube lights or a 40-inch light bar. Prices start at $1,949.99.
ADD also has ways of making the back end of the Ranger look tougher. Like the front bumpers, the Stealth Fighter and Venom rear bumper styles are powder-coated and leave room for additional off-road lighting. They’re also available with cutouts to fit rear parking sensors. Starting prices range from $1,199.99 to $1,399.99.
