Look for 4.10 gears (not many out there) and it will wake up the 4.0.
I like 2x’s in the air some but that is just me.
Look at the interior, change up the Dash Lighting to LEd and the color to match your expectations.
Bucket seats are quick and east, Explorer Seat low or high back some are powered but they usually only need two wires. Mounting them is the only real challenge.

Luck, take your time - do it right the first time.

I am not a fan of the Rhino Liner but if it what you want then do it, there is a paint called Stone Guard that can be any color that works too.

Buckets are everywhere so look for a good set, if you were closer to me a have three pairs for sale.
The Full length Consoles take time to get out and reinstall but for some well worth it, I like the shorty consoles with the in-line cup holders.
When doing the seats check the mount spacing on the bottom of the seat not the floor mounting, then when picking out seat see if you can get a set of Explorer or Ranger Seats that have the same pattern and all should almost bolt in.
More of the 1st gen rangers came with buckets so keep your eyes open. what Ex Seats will fit I do not know sorry.
The Cluster LEDs are time consuming but nice touch to an interior, read the how to’s and see what is involved.

Good Luck on the project and as siad already, “Do It Right The First Time” !

yea the paint is starting to chip on the bottom so doing rocker pannels of lining would be nice. been thinking about LEDs around the inside of my truck. go with the green everywhere.

Get some HIDs and some new heads and corners. also look into some 06 tails. If you were closer id see if you wanted to trade beds. Also you should ditch the flag style mirrors and swap to the newer style ones or even 06+ style ones
