Default 6 months of picking parts out of junkyards

Bought this little XL (SPORT) ranger back at the start of the year and I've been driving the hell out of it. Love the 5 speed 4 banger rangers, tons of fun. Never owned an XL (SPORT) before though and realized instantly I hated it. Been putting it together for the last6 months doing an XLT conversion and finally finished it today.

Only thing not "completely" XLT is the bumpers which I was going to buy (and had the chance yesterday) but I prefer the white bumpers. So it's done.

All that work you did is awesome! I'm looking to do something like that to the '99 ranger I have.

Incorrect.

Sport is an XL with painted bumpers, grill, and upgraded wheels (but midgrade, not XLT grade). Sliding rear is optional, none come with carpet... blah blah... etc.......

Hmm.....

Door panels $50
Rear Sliding $75
Grill $35
Seats $50
Carpet $35
Domelight $15

Wheels $150
Tires $150

I think that is about it, then $140 for the brake job.
