Smile 02 Ranger cab swap

Well the first of the month i had rolled my truck over. after much thinking and a lil research i decided to keep the truck and fix it. but i wasnt going to pay the 7500 to 9000 to fix it by a pro. my uncle talked me into just swaping the cab out. well after about 10 hours with me and my uncle we have the truck near ready to take the cab off. heres what i have so far:


Before any work.




after one day of working on it:
removed bed, Fenders, grill, and things in the engine bay



after day 2:
dash mainly tore out, along with more out of the engine bay



After day 3:
Interior out minus headliner, radiator out

All of this is new to me. i have never worked on a vehicle to this extent. it is definitely a learning experience. i will keep you guys, and ladies, posted as the project goes along

Been there and done that ... I know exactly what you're goin through.
It's definitely a lot of work, but it'll be worth it in the end.
I'm just curious, do you have any extra dark grey interior parts left over?
Did you take your old VIN # and put it on the doner cab?
