I want some XLT panels so bad, but the catch is that I want the padded section to match my seats (as they typically do in vehicles)

not so much an issue of the color as it is the material, I don't want the vinyl ones, I want black fabric like my seats, also all the ones I've seen don't have the hole cut out for the window crank (came with power mirrors/windows/locks)

thanks brotha! If I ever do the fabric I will get with him for sure! But like I said, the next stop on the panel changing train will be legit factory dark gray ones. but those will be a PITA to find. oh, and what do you think of the emblems man?

I myself am not big on blacking the fender badges out. I think it would sway me more to liking them once I see them on your truck, the black/yellow contrast does well together

The only Edge Plus trucks to get Fabric Panels were the 03-05. 01-02 had vinyl, so you're fine.

So did you have the door panels without map pockets?

If so I loved upgrading cause you can fit a flashlight in there easily.
