Not sure on detail, but someone was sliding at the line and a group was left half way around on last lap.

De-badged some more.
Removed the Ecoboost badge.
Green/Blue and chrome never matched Saber and Black.
Plus Ecoboost name a little weak.

Upvote for dealer and EcoBoost de-badging. I did the same.

Also, did you have the hitch receiver stock, or add aftermarket? I need a receiver someday...

Hitch receiver is OE. Purchased with vehicle as part of tow package. Installed about 1 month after I picked up truck. Some of the bumper trim pieces had to be reordered due to missing. OE tow set up fits tight and looks good. Suggest as a good option. Complex install with bumper removal. Had dealer do as it was part of the purchase.

Added a cab sticker.
At first added due to the year we are living but now it looks more like an “Angry Ranger”. Sort of like but easy to remove when I am tired.

Racing Stripes.
Having a little fun, added racing stripes on one side of the Ranger.
Was not going to add unless I was running a tune. Stripes are associated with Dodge but I think the history is in forms of racing to identify one car from others of the same make and color. Not a perfect install but not bad. I will keep for a while to see how I like. Ordered spare in case I want to replace. Always order two. The first time is practice.

Sun was in the golden hour before sun set, so the truck was bathed in gold.

Matte black. Wish it was 3M as it makes install easier.

Saw your username and recognized it right away from Vortex and the Mk7 forum! Pretty cool to see Mk7 folks in different cars. Truck looks sharp :thumbsup:

Thanks!
Forums always a lot of help.
Have not installed yet on the GTI, or posted on MK7 forum, but found 100% carbon fiber mirror caps. Ceramic coating before install.
You will be first to see.

Added the passenger side box.
It does not swing perfectly into place and lock. Needs a little help.
Feels like more play in hinge and box is sagging. Tried to adjust hinge but not much room to move. Might slot top and bottom hinge holes to adjust up some.

Bonus!
Four more cup holders and places to hold foot long hotdogs.

Good to see i'm not the only one. I'm looking to trade this in for a more versatile daily driver.
