New Ranger owner

Hello all. I just bought my first Ranger. I really like it. It's a 2011 XLT supercab V6 4.0L auto 5 spd trans. I was cruising the net looking for bedliners and shells when I thought I should look into a ranger forum. I'm a member of a T-Bird forum and it has been very helpfull when working on my T bird. From what little I've seen of this forum it looks to be very similiar. Thanks for having me!

No pics yet, but I will take some and post them soon.

I'm currently shopping for shell and bedliner. Ideally I would like a setup consisting of a full time overrail bed liner and an easy on/off shell.

I was speaking with a fella yesterday who has a brand new OEM over rail bedliner for sale. He said he had it installed but didn't like it. He said some screw-in assembly plugs or some such were coming loose and causing some movement. He said he thinks they need some additional screws or something. It sounded like probably a minor modification/correction issue. He also said that he is getting a snugtop shell and the shell will not accomodate an over the rail bedliner which gives me pause. Anybody have any suggestions as to easy on/off shells that will accomodate over the rail bedliners?

I have a 1996 T-Bird 4.6L V-8 Sport Option. I'm the original owner and love the car. The Ford dealer said I could get an additional $1000 or $ 2000 rebate by using it as a trade-in. Lucky for him the car didn't hear him. I think she would have taken offense at the low value assigned to her. She has aprox 130K on her but she runs better than new. I haven't done much in the way of mods but she purrs nice and has a lot of spunk. Anybody that knows these birds know they have an issue with intake manifolds. Long story short, I recently replaced it with a PI manifold. That along with the K&N filter and performance mufflers has it running real sweet and I hope to put at least another 130K on her.
