Nice! Looks like they are in better shape than the ones I had.

Does your truck have the 14" wheels on it now?

Yep it has the 14" deer hoof style on it now, the plan is to wear out the tires on them now then keep them for winter wheels and use these in the spring/summer. I'm thinking of lowering my truck maybe a 3/4 drop and putting these on it. Pic does them justice there is a few chips in the clear on them

Every time I see your truck I wish mine was that green. And as in good of shape.
Do those seats take up alot of room? I have some seats out of an explorer but they take up way too much room for me.

Thanks, they were a noticeable difference in room, but I'm only 5'10 145lbs so they are fine for me, I did the swap more for having the console so I could have more storage space, the 60/40 console is almost worthless for keeping things in imo, plus these seats have pockets on the back of them so I can keep some tools in them.

The 60/40 console is worthless for sure. And the cupholders by the shifter seem a mile away.

I realize this is a seriously old post but this picture makes me want to clean up my stock sport wheels and put them back on.

Tinted windows on the older green Rangers really makes the color stand out. You should do a spray in bed liner.

That's on the list to do, will probably be doing that in the summer when I take the bed off to replace the fuel filler neck. Will undercoat the frame while I have the bed off as well.

Just Started the process of prepping the bed for the bed liner kit last week. Took the bed rail caps off, sanded and primed them. Will be painting those in the next few days.

Also bought new shocks for the front and rear. Went with bilstein 4600s
