holy cow....i really would lose track of that stuff......nice job though!

what are you going to do with the cab off till you get a frame? you should leave the cab on and clean/paint/dynomat the inside while it is on the frame...

if you wanted to change the paint color, now is the time to do it!

yea man its alot of work...the rear of the cab is already dynomatted ( the silver stuff in the pics).....once the cab is back on its new frame i will be looking at other possible colors...but i think iam going to stick with fireball red which is a little darker than the color that was on it originally

Dang man. Do you have time to work with all the time you spend on the Ranger. Kudos for getting the cab off yourself.
