Oh, very nice, mine has just standard grey int.
Makes me feel unique amongst the mass of Red/black/blue cars on the road.

I got that pic off of one for sale and it was listed with the same color you said. Doesn't look anything like that though.

I've seen trucks and Explorers that color, but I don't really care for it. Don't see 'em to often.

i think there's a reason that ford doesn't have that color anymore... the demand for it wasn't well, in demand.

That's way rare to me. I've never seen that color on a ranger let alone any other car.

and I also had a kid in my caprentry class who has a 97 reg cab 2.3 5speed 6ft bed in that color, its not a bad color from a distance but once you get close its kind of ugly. Old mans color for sure they also had it in 98 except it was called denim blue.

ive seen two or three in my area, not very common.
i would love to get my truck repainted that way, but if im paying for it, its going to be one of three colors, black, sonic blue(midnight blue) orrr dark shadow gray.

I like that color a lot! It does need an accent of some sort though. A navy blue or bright blue pinstripe or two tone would make it POP.

I can see why ford doesn't use it anymore. People love flashy colors now and that is anything but. O well
