Default hello there ranger lovers !

my name is amanda. I have a 1998 step side, standard cab ranger. that i love.. but i wreaked... and now im restoring it... I'm going to be cutting off the roof and buying a new one and weld it back on. Right now im in the proccess of striping it out. All I have left to take out is the passenger air bag and the top of the seat belts. But the passenger air bag has been trouble.. I just cant find a way to get it out. Im having a dumb blonde moment. Anyways.. My ex has a honda forum and when i asked him who to ask he said get a ranger forum and see if any one could help me on here. So...thats what im doing. can i girl get some help around here? lol so about me.. I sing,dance,ski, and i love horses.. what about you?

Welcome to FRF Amanda. Sorry to hear about your steppie but impressed that you are restoring it. I don't have an answer for you but someone should be able to help. Post some pics.

I have a '03 Edge Step Side and love it too.

Welcome to FRF. Jamocha Jesus the pics are a teaser to a great story.
While I don't have any insight to your air bag problem, may I suggest posting a thread in the interior or general threads. Good luck with the work, and do tell the story.

youd be alot better off replacing the entire cab than trying to cut the roof off and welding a new one on. theres alot of variables that go into that kind of thing, like if your off the slightest degree the doors will never close or open
