I haven't seen husky liners for the rear, but I haven't looked very hard.

I just don't think I could go with carpet, I would hate spilling something on it or getting mud on it. I love my vinyl floors

What do you guys think? I have husky liners. It's the rear section I'm worried about. Do they make a husky liner for the rear portion of the cab?
x2...Oh and not sure about the husky question.

Found them on the husky liner website. They carry them in multiple colors too. I will be going with a dark gray like in my red truck, and black husky liners.

The carpet under my floor mats in the first cab were the only clean spots in the whole truck. It was light gray and so many greasy parts had been hauled in this truck the rear carpet was ruined, so I ended up cutting it out.

I'm just not a huge fan of how the vinyl floor looks. I built a 2003 edge 4door for one of my marines while he was deployed and it had the vinyl floor. Just made it look like a work truck interior, and I hate that.

If you're building a truck that's made for wheeling and getting dirty, then you might as well put in a floor that was made to get dirty. I love my vinyl floors.

Truck looks like it's coming along nicely btw. Can't wait for the finished product.

Makes a good point. I may go vinyl, I may not. We will see. I have a lot of other items on the check list I can do before needing a floor covering

I spent some time wrenching on this one yesterday. Started swapping the interior panels, and installed the Explorer buckets. Once Rick gets up here, I'll install the lower console. Pretty much just a mock up, as the tan carpet and dash are still installed.-



Also got the diesel finished up


Then I worked on my red truck....

Thanks Doood!

Yea it's definitely a giant turn around from what it was, although now I get to see how bad the truck really is. I'm taking it to the stealership for a used vehicle inspection where they go through everything and let me know what's all broken and what isn't. I have a feeling I'm not going to like their findings...

Do you have to take it to a dealership for that? I thought any approved shop can do inspections?

I don't know anyone around here with the computer that goes into the vehicle computer other than the dealership. They are only charging 46 bucks for half hour labor, so for at price, I can't beat it. I did find out last night the front hubs are frozen solid locked into 4wd, and the transfer case is leaking, so I'm sure that's going to be a problem, along with the clunking noise when I hit a bump. depending on their finding will depend on if I keep the truck or not.

What kind of gas mileage does it get with that lift. I'm thinking of going with a 4" on my 98

My Ranger? Zero? It doesn't have a drive train in it.

I was way above 4" when I DD'd it, running a 35" tire and 4.56 gears gave me about 17-18 mpg. 37's and 4.56 gave me 13-15mpg. 33's (20s) and 4.56s gave me about 20, but had no top end

Why do you have to have all that done? Because it's a rebuilt truck? Around here as long as it passes a regular inspections you're fine

I think's he's just wanting to get it checked out. this is kentucky, our inspection means checking to see if the lights and horn works. we don't even have yearly inspections or anything, i think its more like if you get a new vehicle they might look at it. they didnt looked twice at my camaro with no cats and the smog crap taken off.

Steel pretty much nailed it.

Where the truck has a clean title, I wouldnt have to do anything inspection wise. Since the truck took a pretty hard hit up front, I wanted to have it looked at.

Also, the door jam switches are between 16-30 bucks each. If I have them diagnose it, it cost me 46, and I only have to replace 1 switch instead of replacing all 4.

Mine gets 14-16MPG with 5.38's, 38.5's and about the same amount of lift (5").

Measuring from the center of the hub to the bodyline. Front is probably closer to 6ish but the rear is only 5". Sits level now.

Them tires make it look a lot bigger.

I think when I first finished the truck, I was around 8 in the front and 6 in the rear

Yup that's why so much had to be cut out of the bed. It used to have 33s on it and they didn't even look to small for the lift...only downside to the height is it is going to drag over rocks with as long and short as it is.
