I was looking on Crutchfield and eBay. Sometimes, you can find off the wall stuff on those 'other' Ranger sites.

The thing about those kick panels, is you lose alot of space behind your Parking brake. You can only press it down a few clicks before it hits the speaker.

Who needs a parking brake? That is what the "P" is for on the gearshift thingy. Leave that mother in gear for a stick.

Try sounddomain.com They have them in different colors or should, at least. Then go to thezeb.com and buy a set of CDT audio components.

Good way to break the parking paw or break a tooth off the parking gear.

yeah make sure the parking brake is cleared.. i've seen many who have to move the parking brake over some after putting kicks in. also, say good bye to what little room you have on the floor as it is (why im not putting anything down there, mine are staying in the doors)
