2011 Ranger Sport installing OHC

Hey everyone... i picked up an expo OHC for a good price and was going to install it in my 2011 Ranger. Before i started cutting, i lined it up with my headliner and it didn't seem to fit right. It looks like the 2011 Ranger changed the curves of the headliner and there would be huge gaps in the OHC. Anyone install one in a 2011 yet before i go to town and ruin the headliner? LOL

Thanks for any help

-Alex

Thanks.. i'll take a few pics tomorrow and post them up. It's not by the mirrors tho, it's more towards the back of where the OHC ends, closer to the stock ranger dome light. It looks like they made that part of the headliner bump "narrower" than the 2010 and older rangers. Pics will help explain it better.

I'm in the same boat as you, 2010 B4000. What is the width of the ohc console at the widest?

My '07 is the same way, just not as noticeable with the black headliner.

well i think the headliners changed in 07. Not enough to make a difference really though. I still put mine in. There is just a couple little gaps in the front by the windshield.
