The steel platform on the brake and clutch pedals has to be reshaped to make the covers fit. The accel pedal is more difficult. Requires a lot of cutting and fitting to adapt to the Ranger arm.

I too have L1224R's sitting on a shelf looking so sad.

I have blacked out '06 corners.

The only thing I may be a first at is projectors/HIDs in '01+ headlights. I still need to write that up so I can have a claim to fame on that one, lol.

I'm the only 01 Silver EDGE

I'm the only one rocking ALL LED and ALL HID (Actually, Jp7 and I are)

I believe I was the first to accomplish the full on complete LED dash (with help from Griggs)

Pioneered door triggered rock lights and on switch

Weird I'm pretty sure that this thread is about this site, at least thast what the first post says. So don't bring up old g/e this or RPS that. Tre has the first silver truck on this site with colormatched flares and valance, so basically it is a Edge.

You would still need the grill and lights and the hood.
