My trip to the junkyard

*Installation pics added*


Went to price's auto salvage in knightdale and they had alot of good stuff...you just had to search since all the good stuff had been picked through already.

I managed to get this however.


Seats out of a wrecked 05 ranger.

Got this all for 175...yay me!


Hopefully i can get all this stuff in this weekend, if not next weekend. Most of the stains on this seat is dirt, the shop vac should do the trick correct?

I mainly got new seats since my friend so generously decided to have a nose bleed all over my seats now haha. good reason to get new seats!!!!


Trent they have expo seats out the ***....and a lot of em too so more than likely theyll have something you might like, and Ryan, they had one explorer...98 i believe...with a nice center console still intact but if you want it you should hurry since most others have already been picked through and destroyed. I managed to spend too much money otherwise i woulda pick the center console up for ya.


Just making sure, but this should be a straight bolt in to my reg. cab ranger correct? It was out of a reg cab 05 xlt ranger i believe...cant remember, i was too excited to look when i found these seats with little tears.

Your interior looks like mine now! Did they have any Rangers with the front ends intact? Was that 05 4wd or a edge? Also did the Expo seats were they gray?

they had a couple grey ones...dont remember the condition cause there was a lot of exploders but the rangers were all front end collisions. The 05 was 2wd xlt from what i remember.

I just took a test drive and these seats are comfy!

So those 05 seats were a direct fit in your 01? Just curious as I have an 01 also and would kill for that style of 60/40 swap.
