Default Check out my Interior! 56k no!

I haven't been able to get super active on the boards yet, haven't even made myself an introduction in the forums or set up any of my stats, but I'll be working on it. I've been doing a little interior modding, painting, etc.. and here is what I've done so far..

- Explorer Buckets (without holes) both power, manual lumbar (dyed to match"
- PIE adapter for IPOD (charges/plays same time)
- Explorer Console (painted) Modded for ipod
- FX4 Manual shifter and boot
- SILVER gauge cluster, not white
- Explorer bezel, painted with 2 cig lighters and 2 fog lamps buttons (for later)
- Auto Page 525 LCD 2 way remote alarm
- Explorer OHC

I LOVE the Ipod with the stock stereo. It sounds incredible, charges my Ipod, and does not hinder my cd player. It works amazing. I can still completely open my console cubby, and since the wiring is behind everything, it's very clean.

I have some pictures I took along the way I might post later in the thread if anyone is curious to how I ran it/my wiring. I have it wired so it only will charge the IPOD when the car is running. I can retract the cord in and out of the armrest holder up to about the first cupholder. So while driving, I can flip the armrest up, grab the ipod, and bring it closer to me, then the cord will push itself back in and I can reset it on the velcro!

.. I think that's it, maybe have forgotten stuff. More stuff later for sure! here are some pics!























comments, suggestions, questions, requests welcome!!!:wooo:

looks awesome very clean install. that would have looked kick ass with the longer Console. is the blue light in the dash part of the security system I'd have hid that down with the pass air bag cutoff ?

The blue light is for the alarm. I didn't want to hide it, because it blinks to let people know that I do have an alarm. I placed it there so It can be seen

Thanks for the compliment!

Cool

Nice. I like the shift console and steering wheel..... The two tone black and white looks very nice in the newer style ranger u own, is coincidently the same color scheme as my 1994. I had recently did a complete restoration on my truck last winter (Inside and Out). My digi camera broke so i havnt had the ability to get any more pictures on. But uh ne way, it looks nice.

some do, some dont, depends if its a 4x4, BUT they most likely have a window wiper knob above the fog/defroster buttons
