Looks like that tint stuff isn't holding up

What's causing that? The heat?

Looks GREAT except for a few things:
  1. you needs to use some Simple Green and a good tire brush on your tires. THey still have a slight red tint to them from dirt mang.
  2. Soak your seats with Tuff Stuff and then scrub them with a rag. Your seats are kinda dirty mang

Other than that, truck is clean!

No you need to buy the upholstery I bought. costs like 200-300. Worth every penny:

just email Terry, tell him what you have and tell him what you want. He made my FX4 style ones for my 60/40s. They were stitch for stitch made just like OEM and fit like a glove!

here is his store:
http://motors.shop.ebay.com/terrato3/m.html

but i wouldnt buy from store, just email him what kind of seats and truck you have and he can make you some! he even has black leather!

but here is his email:
[email protected]

and the thread from members who have htem:

https://www.ranger-forums.com/interior-semi-tech-40/jealous-fx4-style-upholstery-my-60-40s-122426/

as for the brush, its just a long black handled brush with yellow bristles

P.S. You should hit the top of your rear bumper with some Mothers Back-to-black... it should help it look better

Yes i purchased it for a whopping $425 and had them install it. The place was called Yankee Custom
The brand is Access Lorado Roll up cover. I love the cover. I opted for the low profile height of this cover (more $$). It has weather stripping all along the sides and is water tight. Has tightness adjustments does not flap like some covers. Overall it was worth the cash i dropped.

No. I don't use tire shine for a few reasons.
1. Gets all over wheels (i love my wheels shining)
2. Tires stick out (when i used it the last time it was all over the truck smeared)
3. Nothing like a nice scrub with Simple Green (love the smell)
Scott back me up

I concur! I too do not use tire shine! But u could eat a steak dinner off of my tires they are so clean. I think that if u keep a tire as clean as I do you don't need tire shine. Look at my latest thread.

Also think back when u clean ur truck and u clean ur tires. They leave black residue....because of tire shine that attracts all kinds or dirt. Rub ur finger across mine and u have a clean finger.

Once again see..
