Icon6 Finally the Ranger Got Attention

Well started with rewiring everything and cleaning that up..
Got tired of having to undo the tonneau to get into the bed so i came up with a awesome way to make my tonneau a flip top so i designed me a hinge system...now all i need is the lift shock things

Did the big three wiring upgrade and its alot better now!

got me a billet grille and painted it black and had my buddy paint the black surround the same color as the truck and it looks great!

Cool. I'm impressed. Where did the silver dials (heat/AC) come from?

Yes. The radio bezel just "pops off". Just remove the 2 screws above the HVAC and pull the whole thing out. As for the dash, it a biotch to get off. DO NOT REMOVE IT IF YOU DONT HAVE TO!

I like your idea on the tonneau cover. You bolt the 2x4 to the bed, then the hinge to the tonneau? Been tossing the idea around myself, sucks in the winter when you need back there and have to crawl into the bed. lol

Nice work, truck looks good.
