Looks good! I have been thinking about getting one (or two) of those tool boxes for my Ranger. What leveling kit did you go with?

Thanks, it is the 2" leveling kit from BDS Suspension. This one seemed the least intrusive since im not a big off road driver just wanted the truck to look better :)
Here is their lingo,

Specially designed for the new Ranger, this 2"
leveling kit is engineered for additional tire
clearance and improved performance without
overextending the suspension or driveline angles at
full suspension droop (as is the case with other top
mounted spacers and taller leveling kits on the
market). The issue with most other kits is they
increase the overall length of the strut assembly
maxing out ball joints and causing the CV shaft/boot
to operate at an extreme angle leading to premature
wear/failure of the components. To get around this
apparent issue the BDS kit uses a 2-piece design with
a smaller top mounted steel strut spacer in
combination with a preload spacer. The top mounted
spacer installs easily and is finished in a durable
black e-coating for a clean appearance. The preload
spacer installs below the spring and raises the ride
height without extending the overall extended
length of the strut assembly while maintaining
factory ride quality allowing you to get the most out
of your new Ranger's factory suspension.

I bought one to see if I would like it or not, its pretty cool and better made than I expected. If I end up needing more bed storage I will get another one for sure. Main thing for me is the tire chains and stinger which are always too dirty for inside behind the seat.

I installed the N-Fab running boards on Saturday. My reason for buying these was to lower the step point as the stock ones were so high it was hard to "tuck into" the truck without feeling awkward.
They work fantastic but you can't step over them as they protrude a little further out. Only downside is my 11yr old Lab uses portable steps to get in/out but these keep the steps too far away and make him nervous lol. They are just plastic so I am going to cut a section out of them to allow them to fit up tight to the truck again.
Overall super happy with these and they were simple to install!

Looks good. I have the chrome bumpers an wheels too. I was looking at the chrome tailgate lettering too but I also like the flag pattern. I'm wondering if chrome will match better. I'm gonna get chrome running boards too to match. I really like that color too.

Thanks! I love the chrome look against the color, too old school for black I guess lol.
I was unsure how the lettering would look but I really like it! It's not a vinyl sticker but actual metal decals :)

I just ordered a 2020 and I ordered SplashGuards/Mud Flaps as part of my order. I hope they look like yours!! Anyone know if they are the same? Thanks in advance.

Well its been a week and I really like the step height of the running boards! Got the dog stairs modified so he can go up/down again so everyone is happy lol.

If anyone wants these stock running boards you can have them for free. PM me to either pick them up or pay to have them shipped to you.

Thanks to @OregonRanger , I now have running boards on my truck!

So far, I'm liking them. For a net investment of a few hours time and about $50 in bolts to attach them, I'm pretty happy. I'd call it a win/win.

Super nice guy who owns a BEAUTIFUL Ranger.

Thank you, @OregonRanger
