Mmmm Sparco Mmmm

I just bought a pair of Sparco 4 point harnesses for my Ranger tonight! Black with red labels. I should have the lap belts installed tomorrow night and the shoulder harnesses will have to wait until I can fab up the bar for them or get some body washers and drill the cab.

Will have pics tomorrow night!

My brother owns a Euro-tuning buisness.

If anyone is interested in a group buy of some harnesses/seats, I'm sure I could get us a hook up.

I am reworking my nitrous system, so I may need the hookup on some nitrous parts in the near future.

Ah yes, I have much to learn master..

Seriously though, just saying if its fast enough to crush the cab, those belts do more harm than good.. but being a street truck you dont have to worry 'as' much.. just dont want to see you get hurt and nobody put the warning out there..

Well considering that I always wear my seatbelt, if I crush the cab, I am screwed either way!

But I am slowly working my way up to a rollcage and so on and so forth lol

I am uploading pics as we speak

Yeah, I agree. But hey, like I said, you guys want some deals on some seats or some harnesses, pm me. I can get a good hookup, esp. if it's a group buy.

Stock belts hold you at an angle and allow your upper body to 'bend', like when you reach over to the passanger floor for something...

They look good though! Didn't know you had the seats too..

Well, there is a story behind the seats. Over on FTW, in the WI chapter, a guy had them in his 2002 ranger. Sick **** truck , lifted up on 35's, and a ton of other stuff done to it. He offered me the seats for a straight up trade for my stockers. I couldn't pass that deal up. So I didn't really buy the seats lol

Thanks for the comments guys!

They are pretty comfortable actually, it took a bit to get used to being held in the seat and not moving around too much. But in the next vehicle that I own, racebuckets are going in it as well!
