The only thing cover wise i had to do was pull back the leather around the seat belt hole, you covered it up and the padding was too much for inbetween the belt bracket.

I just used the larger Ranger bolts with it. Tightened down they work fine. I forced em through the smaller explorer seat holes with an impact. The only issue I had was trying to remove them one day when I wanted to checkout underneath. The passenger side bolt would not let go lol.

Right now I have 4.10's. They do decently on the highway after my tuner. I'm getting 4.36's later this year hopefully

Ok. I was wondering if I could get away with 4.10s but it doesnt sound like it.
My 32s gobble up the power pretty good

Both of us have sct .. And I got mine tuned by Fred and I'm pretty sure he did to.. Fred's did a good job and was easy to work with . I would go to 456 gears if I was gunna do 33s but if you looking to get better highway mileage 436 would be better for highway. I'm gunna be towing a 14 ft enclosed trailer so I'm looking for all the power I can get .. So that's why I'd do 456 gears and 33s .. Use a tire and gearing calculator and 31s with 410s is about the same as 456 with 33s.

Yes I do have the SCT tuner. I got it from Fred, I mostly keep it on the economy tune until it's time to play.

Also, I just realized that I typed 4.36 instead of 4.56. Nice catch Boyd

It might be better to PM the guy who made them drppdyllwrngr. He can tell you how the pricing works.

Mine were a "top of the line" seat. heated, leather, custom stitching.

Before the lift I was getting around 21 on the highway. I never counted city but it was close to 16 or 17.

Now I'm getting around 18.5 on the highway. 17 overall.

I have 33's with 4.10's and trying to see if going to 4.56's is worth it. I'm re-building a ranger 8.8 at the moment so now is the time to decide!

DO IT! You won't be disappointed. It's one of the best things I've done to my truck (granted I'm on 35's and had 4.10's and went to 4.88, my opinion is the same lol). Especially if you've got a 2wd and are already pulling the pinion....it's a no brainer!

I have had 33's and 4.56 for 7+ years now and I love themm, but I do quite a bit of towing. My only complaint is that the rpm's are much higher at freeway speeds, but for the power i'm ok with that.

I finally got around to painting my interior. I still need to do the back but so far it looks awesome. If I had to do it all again I would have taken the dash out as well. It would make things so much easier.

I used SEM Landau Black, with SEM Sand Free for prep

Just getting back to this thread. Interior looks great!!!!

One thing about the milage. I get 21 SOMETIMES 22 on the highway.

Never have gotten less than 16 around town.

Mind you, on the highway I do 65. Around town, I do about 5-10 over the speed limit And usually have something in the bed Or the plow hanging of the front in the winter.

I am wounding if my 5 speed is where I am getting the better milage

Finally got the back half of my interior painted.

I did the smart thing and waited until I could use my dads heated shed.

I will take shots of the whole thing assembled once I get my radio/sub reinstalled.

This just amplifies my need for a new vinyl floor or just some serious cleaning.

Oh, and I decided I'm going to build a new sound system. Hopefully I'll be sketching a box soon
