yeah, i did. you can kinda tell on the driver side seat. i need to clean it up a bit more. always planned on it next time i took the console out. which will be soon. gonna re-mount the bracket so it sits a little better then it does. and repaint the accent piece. then i'll tuck the remaining parts of the center seat away a little better lol

Look above your post he just explained it. Looks much better Ty! Looking at your rear bumper, I bet if you took your rear bumper off, you could probably beat out that dent yourself from the inside.

You should paint the whole console black and cover it with black vinyl. Thats how I had mine with those seats and it looked great.

Bushwacker diamond caps. Autoanything.com

80 for the caps. 42 for the tailgate cap. They mount with double sided tape. I added more because they kinda skimped on the tape. They hold up great. And they hide the holes from my old tool box

Nice, you will love them. They add some cushion to the seat too.

yeah i read that, definitely looking forward to it.

i ALMOST got some pretty good looking grey leather explorer buckets yesterday, but after sitting in them, idk. they're comfy. but you slide all over the seat. where as with the ranger seats, they actually hold you in place fairly well if you have broader shoulders like i do.

i think the seat covers will be the perfect addition.

klc, do you have them in your truck?

and think ill be okay ordering for buckets? i used to have the 60/40 split, but did the bucket seat mod.
