    can anyone point me to companies that make tailgate letters for the ranger? I know TYD Vinyl letters has them, but I’ve seen other vehicles with raised, 3D letters.

    Individual letters?
    Difficult to install?

    Yes, individual letters. I’d say 6 on a 1 to 10 scale. You use the Wet method of installation so you can move then around to ensure correct position. It comes with an extra R so you can try to install yourself. If you can’t it says most window tinters can do it for you for a fee.

    Awesome, I was thinking of doing this on mine but wasn't sure if it would be overkill. Looks good!

    I have the dark gray Ranger and I’m pondering using maroon letters.

    The guy at TVD said he’d send me a couple color samples. If I don’t go flat black, I’ll either go with a dark maroon metallic or silver.

    Looks great! Like the hood stripe on that color. I started pin striping mine last night in the garage. Just got the tailgate striping done. Want daylight to do the striping down the sides. I did add the flat black letting to the Ranger indents on my chrome grill. I have light gray/silver metallic letters for my tailgate.

    I just walked out and took this picture of the grill. I really like the flat black lettering versus the bare chrome indented letters.
