a pillar gauge pods, paint the dome light. Looks like more interior pieces need to be painted. The way the red dead ends at the ext cab.

Because I think you show the truck i would clean up the sub install. Maybe a custom enclosure that fits the contours.

I had a buddy that took a peice of MDF and cut it to make the floor behind his seat flat. the he put a square box in it looked realy good and clean if not here is one that fits our trucks and looks real clean.

I'd say do like suggested, paint the panels on the sides of your rear windows, and the metal panel below your rear window . . . plasma cut out "Ranger" in it's 06' emblem writing and fill it with red plexi with some LEDs behind it . . . would look wicked sweet.

Hard wire the radar detector into your OHC wiring and mount it up higher near the roof so you won't have that wire laying on the dash.

x2 or 3 on the sound system cleanup. Either try and do it yourself or look into ways of getting someone to help you out. It's gotta be done

How is the cushion in your seats? I replaced the foam in my Explorer seats and it made a world of difference. The originals had 5 years of butt compression on them and were a bit flat. It looks like you have the exact same seats that I do (only a different color) and if you want I can give you the part numbers and step by step process of doing the job. I think the Ford dealer price on each pad was $90. Also, since you are into color matching the interior parts to the color of the truck why not paint the plastic peices on the seats. The parts that hold the power controls and lumbar ****.
