Well first I need a sound system got a nice one picked out on Crutchfeild Just waiting on that Stimulus Check

Next I want an Under cover tonneau but it can wait. It already came with the LineX

I'd Like to get bigger wheels and tires ones that give a more aggressive stance not a ford focus stance.

And I was wondering how hard it would be to lay down a cloth interior I dont like the vinyl.

Plus i want a cb and since im almost a paramedic still a basic I will be putting on the emergency lights.

swappin' seats is your best bet and swappin' them is super easy! 4 bolts per seat. just make sure your new seats are from 98 and up. seats at a junkyard can be had for cheap.....sometimes $100! Make sure you new seats come from a regular cab...the seat tracks are different excab vs. regcab.

OHHH! lol. Yea....pull out the seats, pull your cupholders on the floor, pull the door sills, then pull the vinyl. JCWhitney.com has a good supply of direct fit carpeting. It's really easy to do. I actually took my carpet out and replaced it with vinyl flooring like yours. lol.

Welcome to the club. If you go with the carpeting on the floor, pick up a set of WeatherTech Floor Liners. A little pricey, but well worth it. Covers almost everything, except the hump.
