Looks great with the 03 valance! I would use a staple gun for the arm rest if you have one, less vulnerable to tearing.

I have an air pressure nail gun! I could probably find a staple gun at Lowe's. I will need to redo it since I used nothing but 3M headliner glue. Got a little bit on the top side of the material. I have hardly any creases on the corner. But I want it to be perfect! It will come in handy for doing the door panel inserts as well.

Why thanks, I don't want to call it amazing. I just enjoy being different! T-Bar, no sir I'm special...I have a 2x4 I mean 4x2 I mean...2wd! LoL yep only 2wd maybe my member name should FX4wannabe04! I would have liked to get a 4x4 but didn't find any that I liked and this one had the most lowest miles out of them all. I'm glad I went with a 2wd because damn those T-Bars hang low when those 4wd trucks are lifted I saw a guy parked next to me where I go running and was double lifted, I feel sorry for you T-Bar dudes! I plan on keeping this truck for while, SAS can be for seen in the very far far far future.

Well you have a coil sprung 2wd, The 2004 Edges had torsion bars, 2wd and 4x4 ones. Not correcting you just for info for the guy that asked.

So what's so great about the Vinyl Floor? Cleans up easier? Find some new ones from LMC or find some OEM Ford ones? I was wanting to get some Weather Tech deep tread floor mats. My friend has them in his 04 dodge 2500 and they work well in keeping water, mud, snow, sand, dirt off the carpet and in the mats.

Edit: I always forget about the Edges 2wd as well. What the hell is the point of that Ford just give them damn coil!

I like mine because I can throw the floor mats in the back and just jump in when I'm wheelin, spill a drink not a problem. I have factory carpet mats so its basically the opposite of what you want. I think the weather tech mats will work fine for what you want.

I always wanted a single cab Stepside! A 5.0 supercharged built up would be nice. Maybe an 8.8 or 9" would make it launch better! But thanks for the compliments, I'm a sucker for blue Rangers!

I have the WeatherTech Floor liners, and they are great. A little pricey but well worth it IMO.

Interior Painting...

Here is what I'm doing with the interior of my truck. Went to autozone and picked up some Duplicolor Ford Silver Charcoal paint and took apart my passenger door panel. Took out the tweed insert and recovered it with the same material I used to recover my Explorer console. I am using black Suede. I painted the door handle/switch panel and I will use this color to repaint the Explorer Radio Bezel that I am going to mod the Dual Foglight buttons and replace the Wiper module with the 12v adapter and bondo up the selector above the hole. I like the silver it's like TrePaul's truck color, Eventually my interior will be black with silver accent.
