Thanks..

Tomorrow I am hoping to have enough time to get the drivers side done. Wednesday I'll do both outer seat belts and the inner belt receivers  which is great because i was really itching badly on needing the Drivers side receiver replaced.











Friday If I got time to, I am hoping to pull the 60/40 road-head worthy bench seat, remove the back wall amp/layered sub box rack, R&R blue trim plastics for gray replacements and start the swapping out the interior. I still have some sound deadner material to lay too which will go towards the roof panel. I'll have to pull seats again eventually again because I'll be doing fresh new carpet come soon after August.

Still deciding on charcoal or black carpet.. Either will show dirt or mud I suppose. But I think with the updates to the door panels I would like to do in black and gray and to keep a fresher look for longer, I'm leaning towards the black more so ANDDD... I would like to get a set of these seat covers in black although I've seen better pics, its the general concept and to boot. minimize stuff in the glove box and door pockets that I want to have in the truck but not where it is. The plastic rattles drive me nuts at times.




I'll get some before and afters of that too...

I like the look of those seat back pockets, I've no door pockets so they'd work well for me. But I hate seat covers, would be nice to have some way to mount them on factory seats, sans covers.

Its just a molle attachment setup, you could do the pockets onto a "molle tray" strapped to the seat if you wanted... Something like This  could be used attached to the back of your seat and run the molle accessory bags through it the same way

Started late to swap out the new [to me] bucket seats in place of the 60/40 bench, and BLUE interior that has worn its welcome.



I did notice that the buckets do sit higher up, or so it seems. My seats are old and have a lot of seat time but the foam seat itself isnt broken down or even squished. It's better for me now so I like it..

Some things have come up, so I'll either be pushing forward with swapping out some plastic trim tomorrow late afternoon or be pushing it off until Monday.

In the interim, the use of the F450 was out of town sooooo.. Had to move the boat trailer with the Ranger. I was surprised it sagged the rear end as it seems as though the 8x16 trailer with the tandem axles and raising/lowering floor function was far heavier and I pulled it with no problems of sagging.. it drove fine, albeit long as hell people thought for a small truck to be yanking around; was both interesting and a bit humorous to me the stares. CLEARLY would not pull the boat! LOL

Haha, I can see why it's sagging, that's not a ballanced trailer, it's all nose heavy and basically shares the weight (load) with the tow vehicle.

Back inside.. started being more proactive about swapping out the gray interior from the blue. There are two important factors to mention. Both the headliner and the carpet will be swapped out but I am not likely to do it until closer to winter time..


They will both be black, I've already noticed the lighter gray interior has lightened up the window tint. May have to pull the 35% and go back to a 20% (actually a 17%) and or tint the new windshield this fall.

Id really like to use the crystaline from 3M due to its blocking of a ridiculous amount of heat and being very light (70%) BUT at $2k a roll they really don't like to sell it to the public.. so that's been the excuse anyway.

Back to the interior. Since I had to yank the old headliner which was just the foam layer, the cloth literally disintegrated 2 years ago and I kept pushing it off.. as it wasnt sagging any longer and or bare metal turning my Std cab truck into a convection oven; so I left it be but today I did at least take the time to address a couple NVH issues before placing the temporary one in its place.

Yea, it was 110* today at 1618hrs and i'm playing with a 630* Heat gun, real smart ehh?


Now everyone's got their arguments on brands, cost factors, type of, even weight concerns of material based vs spray on.. blah blah
Now to be honest. I was going to let the guys over at 12* North spray a specific sound deadener in the truck along with a added heat rejecting ceramic layer but cost factors weren't in the budget this early in the month. But I did have a few pieces left of my Streetwires "Zero noise" left and it was just enough to get the roof done to match the back wall. Maybe in the fall when I replace the carpet I can get the floorboards done along with the inside/outer inner door skins.

And Yes.. I purposely set it up to be read correctly as I was looking up at the roof. I should have made a slight 0.125" to 0.1875 overlap but I was very thin in material coverage and well.. I could always double up on it at a latter date if need be. So with the headliner down and cleaned & prepped.



First piece, passenger side.


Add in travelers side.


Back again, and again.. add in's to touch up and make complete.



Then came the high density acoustic foam which was used to seal off cavities left open by the manufactures design.





Both sides were done as well as the front and rear "halo" like portions of the front windscreen and above the rear window.







Not gonna lie, the very first time I put in an OHC was in my own and up until the material fell off I had hid 2 small mistakes which of course once no material was there were embarrassingly visible. With the newer headliner I adjusted my miss calculations and tightened up the OHC look. I am more pleased with it, although I think I have a better understanding of the bracket than before which when I do the black headliner. I will again make a necessary adjustment.




Of course it was dark by this time... but done for the night. Just need to finish off the seat belts and rear panels behind the seat corners and the modified grills.



More to come.. New tires coming in this week. Went up a size putting me at 34's now with all new front end joints. Still need to address the sloppy steering box eventually before it becomes even further worse.. Feel like Capt. Jack Sparrow on some  ty corrugated paved roads here in Vegas at times. Jones is a Nightmare street! lol

Nice work on the headliner. 

Where do you keep your spare?

Red head steering gear box for you!
One of the best modifications I have made to my 88 Bronco II is that red head box

What about pulling your bedsides for tire clearance? I love the look of pulled bedsides.

Will certainly have a bit more with the new setup on the new frame but I can squeeze what I need from what's there.. for a little bit. Lol

Thanks, although that headliner is only temp until I get a new one. The old one th material flaked off and looked like I kept a bobcat in my truck for an alarm system.

Currently the spare has been an after thought to be honest. With the tires being a 10 ply before, the 28oz of ride - on inside, and being somewhat mindful of what I am doing and where. I never flinched at not having it and even what I had for a spare would be a get me home only. Wasn't even the same size as what I have on now.

This time though I've opted to get the spare in the same size.

I'll have to look into the red head steering. What made you swap out from the OEM to it?

And I'm not sure about the pulled bed sides. I was always under the impression that sorta distorted the upper bed rails and with the cap on the back, I didn't want a gap to show up.

Yesterday I spent the late afternoon and evening cranking on ball joint press by hand and 1/2 ratchet since it was so hot to keep the air compressor going due tot he heat index.. Vegas in Aug/Sept = "unfrickenreal !"

Anyway, end result. new front end ball joints uppers and lowers, a fresh alignment and proof that with a 2" front lift kit, slight 1.7" lift to the rear, and a 2" body lift.. YOU CAN stick and tuck [alright like] 33.7" (285/70-17) mud tires still.... Just saying

Out with the OLD: [265/70/17]


In with the NEW:











And she rolls and turns a head or two beautifully again..

That's up to the Air Force. I did love it out there. Not sure I can deal with the traffic now though. I was there from Dec 2003 until December 2008.

depends on how you are with traffic - I'm not sure what traffic was like when things went South here in 2008 but the last two years or so... Lets just say the good ole boys at the USAF would be temporarily missing an F35 for a few hours while I had a most remarkable GTA5 moment...

If I recall correctly, traffic at 2am in Vegas was worse than rush hour here in Valdosta!
