I scored a shorty console at the JY with a cloth flip down arm rest but the material was ratty looking. The one on my shorty console in my Ranger is vinyl & with a cloth interior I wanted a cloth arm rest so I re-covered the one from the console I got from the JY & will install it tomorrow.

Pulled the bed off the Ranger today & replaced the l/s & r/s leaf spring rear hangers & shackles.





When I pulled the bed off I found the front lower lip is rotting away.

Thank you.

Today I installed the shorty center console fold down arm rest I re-covered in gray cloth.

Picked up a set of factory Side steps today from a member here. Now I have to clean & re-paint them.

Today I disassembled the "new to me" Ranger side steps & sanded & wire wheeled the rust spots on both of them. I will need to hit a few spots with the angle grinder & prime them tomorrow.

Hit a few spots with the angle grinder & coated the bottom half the step bars with Master Series Silver rust inhibitor paint.

Finished coating the step bars with the Master Series Silver rust inhibitor paint. Treated one of the step pads & one pair of the end caps & you can see how bad they were faded from the weather & the sun.
