Hmmm I had a Tekstyle on my last Ranger. It was nice, but I hated the vinyl in the winter. With the flip up I think I would be allright. I think cloth side skirts would be a good idea.
My main plan here is to be able to throw the dogs in back if we ever get to go on a trip with the truck. With 2 dogs and 2 kids I would have to debate who rides in the bed and who rides in the cab
