My dad has been hinting to me that he wants an overhead console in his truck (my old truck) ever since he saw mine up and running. He drives my old '99 Ranger (single cab, 2.5L, 5 speed) that I sold him after I was involved in an accident (damaged the right side of the bed). He's asked at least twice "When are you gonna put one in mine?". My answer was always "no" because I really didn't feel like installing another. He and the rest of my family took off Friday night to spend a few days in Florida, so while I'm here alone with his truck, I decided to go ahead and do the install as a surprise.
Here's his truck (before the bed was damaged):
And the overhead console after installation:
I mounted the temp. sensor in the same location as my truck:
And here's a photo I took of my truck yesterday. You'd be surprised at how many stares it gets. I mean afterall, it's just a Ranger:
I spent most of the day yesterday repairing my truck from the "accident" it was involved in, so today, I decided to spend a little time on his truck.
Tell me what you guys think! :)
