Got another set of wheels. Same wheels as before just with bead locks. This weekend I'm going to polish these and paint the bead locks black

Are the bead locks functional or are they just for looks like the bolt heads on fender flares?

Well the bolts on the flares are functional and so are the bead locks

those are beauty rings aren't they? They do not actually lock the outer bead....
My wheels on my F350 has those too, I have been thinking of a cool way to paint them up when I coat the truck

I like the contrast of the aluminum vs something. So either black or maybe a urban camo or a cool hydro dip of some sort?
My F350 is white with a red stripe on the bottom, terrible re spray from years ago in fact you can still read on the door where it used to be owned by a concrete company lol so I am planning to coat the whole cab in white monstaliner and the beauty rings on the wheels I will probably do in a white urban camouflage I think that would look pretty cool!

I've decided to paint them due to the rungs not being in the best of shape. But I'm stuck between black to match the truck or tangerine orange

Oh man. Halloween ftw!!! Coolest ranger I ever saw was a black FX4 with orange flares. I've looked and looked for one forsale and on the internet because I cant remember what color the lower stripe was (charcoal, orange, or grey).  It looked so cool. Do it!!!

Times have been rough here lately on the old girl. Coming home from work the truck started to sputter and and die like it ran out of gas. After determining I had no fuel pressure I changed the fuel pump and fuel filter. Drove the truck for a day ran great then bam it sputtered and died like it ran out of gas. After several hours of checking parts and swapping parts I determined the interia switch was bad. Replaced that trucks been running great. Now I'm chasing what I think is a ground problem. Every once in a while when I hit the brakes my fog lights come on

If I lived closer I would offer to help, but since I am on the east coast that will not work. I like the wheels on your Ranger, I would paint the bead lock rings black to match your Ranger.

Headers look good !
Do you feel there is an increase in power ?

The Trim Rings on the wheels, how about RED, E4 RED that is, instead of Orange; black works too !
