haha i got rear ended and i got out holding my neck...but ranger seats probably hurt you more in a rear end collision, they suck.


sorry to hear tho dude, i feel your pain, i was hit by a ram in april, $10,000 later...wasn't fun. and by the sounds of it your truck is way worse off.

At least you got hit in an 04+ The headrests are significantly taller than in the pre-04s. With the old seats taller guys could practically hit their head the the rear window. When I swapped mine 2000 seats out for 2004s the passenger seat created a new blindspot lol.
