Custom front and rear 2" receivers

Aussie lockers front and rear
Yakima Megawarrior roof rack w/ spare tire mount
A.R.E. bed cover
Window tint (13% driver and passenger, 6% on all rear windows)

Really they are not all that bad. I have one, hard top comes off really easy, bed extender and you have the same amount of room. If you have kids or dogs or something the extra room inside is nice.

So is your face!
I don't recall anyone asked your opinion anyway, someone just wanted to see some pictures. Start your own thread if you want to complain about how they look.

I had a ranger for a few years, rarely used the whole bed except for sleeping. I found myself more often needing a full backseat than a 6' bed.
The sport trac bed is 6' long with the tailgate down. Comfortably fits 4 people with plenty of gear in the back. Plus I have a trailer.
Never had a space issue with it.
I didn't want a fullsize at the time, because some of the trails I used to run wouldn't fit a fullsize. I can get the sport trac into some tight spots.

But now I'm wanting an F150. Not for any particular reason though I just like them...

Ive always liked the lifted Sport Tracs, but ive been eyeing f150's also. Probably have a different vehicle by next fall thats for sure and it will probably be an 05-06 F150...

Yes there are a few out there with manual transmissions, hard to find though. Same tranny as the ranger so a swap probably wouldn't be all that difficult if you're into that sort of thing.
The automatic was the thing I liked the least, but I'm getting used to it. It's not bad with a tuner firming up the shifts and stuff, and a bigger tranny cooler to keep it from overheating.
FWIW, I didn't like the looks of sport trac's either until I saw a lifted one... Took me a long time to decide I wanted to buy one, because of the short bed, but I haven't regretted it except when I wanted to sleep in it once or twice.

The lifted ones IMO look 100x better than stock ones. I've never seen a double lifted one though.
