Default Look what I found at the junkyard the other day!

I have seen a lot of threads here about painting the interior a different colour. I wanted a Black interior since i started looking for a truck.

When I was looking for parts at the local JY's and came across a 2002 Ranger FX4 extended cab.

The truck was hit from behind so the box was all messed up. I took a look at it hopping it was a 5 Speed so I could get the stick from it, but it was an automatic and that was ok since everything else in the interior was good including the airbag.

After asking what they wanted for the parts, I just about giggled like a school girl when they told me $100 if I take it out for myself. I couldn't get the money out fast enough. I know I stole it from them but I wasn't going to say anything.

It took me a bit to get everything out of it since I had never taken a dash out before but i think 2 hrs without breaking anything was good.

Once I got it home it took some good scrubbing 2 or 3 times but it all come out nice.

New Interior


I couldn't wait to put it in, so i called up a buddy and we started gutting my truck and getting ready for the new dash.



I just about started to cry thinking I would never get to drive my truck again!

Having both dash panels out of the truck made it easy to swap parts from one to the other like gauges and wire harness.

Old Dash


New Dash


Finished Product


I love how it looks now. I just have to do the 40/40 mod to my seats to get the explorer console in.

Let me know what you guys think.

Dude, that is absolutely awesome! Reminds me of when I got the black interior for my F100. Wanted a black interior so bad, then found out that a friend of mine had just recently bought a truck with a black interior, that he was gonna scrap once he took the axles. Asked him how much for the interior, he told me $30. Like you, about two hours later I had the entire interior out and was on my way home.

I'm glad I found it. I stopped at the stealership and they wanted $350 just for a door panel. EACH! so I couldn't even think what they would want for the airbag or the complete dash.

Every now and then you get lucky on things. This was your day. It also proves it never hurts to ask.

Nicely done, and I'm hoping you sell the other to pay for this one.
