Thanks. I got it out of an early 90s first gen S15 Jimmy, but I think they where the same through all the years, I got the short one, the long one has 2 more map lights at the rear. The install? Fairly easy, wiring was the hard part since I also added the switches for my interior neon and my driving lights, but I do make my own harnesses when doing wiring so it was easier. Now all I got to do is make the maps turn on using the switches. And keep the compartments from rattling and find a clear lens for the dome. If you plan on doing it just PM or IM me and I'll give you a hand. BTW, I love it, and I just cranked the torsion bars yesterday.

I love your truck. I don't really care for the Blazer OHC though. I can't see tainting a good Ranger with a GM product. I don't really like it when people mix GM and Ford stuff. But, I love the rest of your truck man. Great job.

lol, I usually don't mix brands... But I didn't really like the look of the explorer console for what I intended since I needed more space for my switches, and more light. Right now though, I'm looking for a way to mount my spare because I plan on getting another DC Crusher and an Alcoa so I have a real spare. I cant decide what though.
