It looks like that will fit newer Rangers, but the listing says 83-94

You'd have to make sure that was secured down well, otherwise it will rattle like hell

there is another set that says 95-01. and it says it compatible with my 04.

It also says you have to bend the parking brake pedal over some to clear the panel.

I drove a '71 T-bird with that style kick panel and it sucked!!!! say goodbye to any leg room at all, your left leg is gonna be stuck crossed under your right leg, and u gotta make sure your parking brake doesn't go down that far otherwise you're gonna destroy the whole kick panel, imo it's a very bad idea, I'll never get one or recommend it to anyone.

But I guess if you're a short person and relocate the parking brake to a hand lever E-brake it will work fine, and I wouldn't want to bend the parking brake because it'll get weak and after a while it will just snap right off

if sound quality is important to you and you have component speakers.
these are one of the best ways to go without hacking up your interior.
usually very expensive though.

im not sure about the passenger side fitting on 04 and up where it has the bump out for the fuse box.
