Good job, Myke!

Yeah, there's 98-00's painted in a dark grey called "RC - Medium Platinum Metallic Clearcoat". The 04+ DSG we all know and love is "CX - Dark Shadow Gray Pri Clearcoat Pearl". Different paint codes...the gen4 are a lighter shade.

$350 or so from your local Ford dealer...not including the $130 ball...IF they can locate one...

Junkyard my friend...or craigslist or ebay or any of the Ranger Based Vehicle forums out there(FRF, RF, TRS, RPS, GE). I just sold two in the past couple months for $175 each.

They came on '02 Fx4, '03-07 Fx4 Level II and 08-09 Fx4. All obviously equipped with manual transmission.

Looking good, Mykhael... and getting better every day!

It looks like I'll need to snap a photo of the radio in my 2001 XLT, as you don't have it pictured in the 2001-2003 radio group. It's an AM/FM/CD/Cassette.

That would be awesome. Some of the 01 stuff is hard to find the right picture of.
