Nice interior

I am looking to redo the interior of my 04 king cab. I want to keep the back for how I have it storing my gear and what not behind the seat. But I am looking to get rid of the split bench seat for buckets and a costum center console. Does anyone have some suggestions or pics out there I can check out?

My first thought is do you need a lumbar support in the driver’s side bucket ?
If not then get another passenger seat for a truck with a 60/40 setup and the same color you want and mount the 60% side (driver’s side) brackets to the new seat.
Later on you can buy some seat covers and you have a set of buckets that have the exact seat covers you would want.

Most JY have leather EXpo seats and expo Consoles so start the search.

I havent goten them yet Im currently stationed in korea and am getting ideas for things I want to do when i get back. The interior is one of them. I dont have the jump sets in the back so I wnat to put a nice system in hard mounted so it will survive 4x4 ing. Im doing well. I liked the sugestions you made I'm jsut looking at all thats out there before i make up my mind. Im also thinking about a 347 small block conversion.

Ok then, Korea.
What branch ?
How long do you have left in the service ?
There e
Will be plenty of time to get a Ranger done when you get back.
347, nice and there is no substitute for HP but the 5.0 is great pig at 302 cubes and can develope great HP numbers, just more to think about.
Irecently bought a Pioneer 120BT not in yet but soon now that wether is warming up.
Good Luck

Yes I am at Camo Humohrees, and I am in the Army. If all goes well Ill have a little over 11 years left in till retierment, and I have a little over 9 months left in Korea. As for the 347 swap that is planed for later when the truck is strictly a play toy. You take care and thank you.

Just bolted in seats from a salvaged 98 explorer XLT. Had to keep the old seatbelt receivers or I got the airbag error and the mounting bolts for the explorer are smaller than my ranger's so I had to use my unibit to make the bolts go through the mounting bracket.. Mine is just a plain drain 3.0 2001 but it was nice to upgrade to leather seats and electric adjustment with a little wiring. I'm an ex-Air Force avionics troop so no biggie. Still working on the console but I think I'll mount a CB radio and a Garmin GPS flush on the top like an aircraft pedistal. Hope this helps... Oh, and when intoxicated try to avoid the binjo ditches... Bruugh.
