I’ve had my truck for about 10 years and I was never really wild about the light grey interior.
Browsing through the junk yard I stumbled on a FULL black interior. Some of it was damaged .... head liner and rear door panels We’re damaged beyond my liking.
I pulled as much as I could and I think the starting product is decent. (pics are foggy)
Going to be doing the dash this weekend so I will have a black dash :headbang:
Head liner is gonna be orange buffalo plaid or just black, I haven’t decided yet.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
I've never seen a Ranger with "all black' interior, must be a northern thing. I've only seen "black & tan" and Gray. Except for the 1st & 2nd Gens that had Tan, Gray, Red or Blue options.

I’m not 100% sure if it’s a regional thing honestly. I know it will probably get a little warm in the summer months but man does it look great! With a little SC1 gloss coat, it looks NEW and smells fantastic!
Im dreading the dash work, but I have My brother helping me (another ranger guru)
Will only take a few hours.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

A few hours to swap the dash? It takes about 30 minutes to pull the dash.
