ummm well for 1 the seats are "so" uncomfortable because they have been riden in for almsot 10 years probably....

and as far as the plug wires go, that is probably the best/cheapest option of running them......i don't see why you had such and issue, i didn't have a single problem replacing mine...

no, the seats are uncomfortable because i'll do 1500 miles in two days.

i had never seen plug wires run like that before. hell even vw's seemed kinder to me in aspects like that. and i always would have tried to pawn off a vw job on someone else (when i was working in a garage)

so your truck isn't almost 10 years old by the looks of your user name, your truck is almost 10 years old.....wear and tear my friend, wear and tear.....things break down after time......

must have never worked or seen a Ranger then......that is how all the OHV 4.0's are.......they are not bad to change.....espically if you don't expect to do the complete job in under 15 minutes........of course it will take longer than a 4 cylinder foreign jobby...

Yeah the leathers in my 19 year old buick are increadable. But even the 04 ranger at work has uncomfortable seats. again i mean over long distances.

My seats kill my back on long distance trips if I don't use a extra lumbar roll.

I use a lumbar roll I got from going to therpy for my back. My truck came with adjustable lumbar support but it is not enough for me.

The majority of people who get in my truck compliment the comfortability of the seats... ESPECIALLY the "lounging" jump seats in the back

But seriously, they're comfortable.

I hate the "bench" seat on my 98. I had buckets in my 97 and they were the best automotive seat I've ever sat in.
