I agree, plus I also did not like the bright “Magnetic Pocket” wheels needed to upsize to get 18”ers
After years of development and popular wish, Ford finally developed a flying truck worthy of the Jetsons.
I’m going to try vinyl wrapping my wheel lip moldings today in matte black. I haven’t wrapped before. I took the rear moldings off this morning and am now waiting on Amazon with the vinyl. Will post pics. In the meantime does anyone know if I can buy these white clips at the hardware/auto parts store/Ford parts store readily? I broke a couple getting the molding off. Perhaps I did that wrong. I was able to access most of the clips but not all.
Cool idea..I want to do it...Can you post the link to what you ordered?
Thanks for the pics, may I suggest that you rustproof both parts before reassembly.
I thought the lip moldings were designed as a hedge against common fender rust, but I now see its more like an invitation!
No rust worries.
2019 Ford Ranger has aluminum hood, fenders, tailgate
Not for you, but here in Illannoy they use more salt than pavement and the box is steel. What are the moldings made from?
The mouldings are plastic.
A bit of Ford humor -
Ford History (Henry Ford (1863-1947)
Henry Ford once said “A customer can have a car painted any color he wants as long as it’s black”
Fast forward to March 2019. For only ~ $2,000 "extra" you can also have all black Ranger by buying the new optional Black Appearance Package.
Damnit! I would have gotten the blackout package if it was available 2 months ago, so I didn't have to add black aftermarket wheels like I plan to eventually do. Oh, well, the other piece I'll probably want to add is the black lower fascia and the black bash plate once the parts department can get their hands on one. Guess I can just repaint mine. The black sill scuff plates look pretty cool, too.

Has anyone on this forum taken delivery of a Black Appearance package Ranger? I would love to see some in-person pictures, opposed to the stock Ford images out there. Thanks
Hi Taylor....No deliveries...I was the first here in CA...maybe nationwide, to order one. I was at the dealership on 3/25 to order, yet the package didn’t even show up on Ford’s ordering system until a day or 2 after the 3/25 Press Release. The deliveries on them start “Summer” 2019...we’ll see what that means in a couple months.
Dear Jeff: I had already ordered the Sport Appearance Package on my Lariat 4X4 in saber, but when the Black Appearance Package (B.A.P.) came out, I just loved it, especially the 18-inch black wheels! Even though I had already signed, the sales agent I worked with said that changing over would be no problem, except that saber, our original color choice, is not available with the B.A.P.! Maybe some executive in the central office thought it would look too much like Halloween? Anyway, we settled on Lightening Blue, which is available and does look great with B.A.P., so all's well that ends well. We take delivery in August, and so I have not really seen a B.A.P. "in person," so to speak.... Hope things work out for you. Regards, Marc
Blackout pkg with white lettered tires.
I'M not a fan of white lettered tires on the Ranger. Especially with a blackout pkg.
Thanks for the info. I ordered about a week after you did (AZ).
Have you heard anything back from your dealer — blend date or VIN?
