I have the exact same seats too, they suck... Some day I'll get some nice seat covers but the ones I want are spendy.
The harley F150's have the black headlights. You can buy black headlights from hella but nearly everyone has had moisture problems with them, so stay away form those!
Thanks man, I love how yours looks and wouldn't mind if that's how mine ends up!

I had my eye on the bilstein leveling shocks, about how much do those run for a good deal? The 35s look sick on your truck, I know I'm not going with an M/T but probably the BFG or Grabber A/Ts. So I'm not sure if rubbing will be an issue. And I do like the DSG headlights Shane showed everyone in the thread, I think it'll go well with the DSG two tone.

And it sucks about the seats, those wet okole covers looks so badass but they cost a pretty penny, probably worth it tho.

Hah, just responded over at f150online...
This is where I ordered my bilsteins. Yes they are spendy. http://www.topguncustomz.com/Store/G...view=241174944
If you go with BFG A/T's, I would go with the 305/65/18's. Roughly 34x11.50's or so. No rubbing, great look, less power loss. Should look great and work great with 3.73's.

yeah but a Ranger has heat, and AC, what more can you need? But that thing is way to nice for a trail truck. I would hate to see that body get dented up.
