Thanks for all the comments guys! I really appreciate it! I just decided to post it so anybody else with a splash or is thinking about doing this can see that it can be done with time and work. I can't believe how well the paint has held up!! truck is getting up there in years, but considering I use it to tow my quad to the dunes and up north and then cruise it around the street after its all clean again I couldn't ask for more!

And as for the STOTM that would really kool!

Like I said, being that it's a splash I always had trouble finding stuff for it so I hoped this would be a way to show anybody else who is thinking about it some options.

Thanks again! :icon_cheers:

Not a big fan of stepsides but that truck does look pretty sharp. I'd drive that truck myself.

Is that the stock Ford blue that came on some Gen II and III Rangers?

It sure is. That is the factory paint that came on the truck 19 years ago. I painted the cowl hood so it would match, but I still have the factory hood wrapped up in the shed as well as factory wheels, suspension, sliding rear window, basically all original stuff.

Nice truck dawg. How much did you pay for these seat? Summit you said?

With this hood, this truck needs a v8 swap or some unnatural aspiration!!

The seats were like 150 a piece and like 50 for the mounts. I ended up making my own mounts though for free :headbang:

Thanks! Ya if i ever have the cash i'd love to throw a 351 in there, haha one day maybe.

Honestly I don't remember exactly but I can dig and find the paper work on it. I think it was like 200 and came unpainted. I will dig through my file on it and see what I can find for you.

Very nice truck! Great job keeping it up! When that enging gets tired I bet she would love to have a V8 under that beautiful hood!
