1988 Ford Ranger

20

Asked by Oct 25, 2015 at 12:29 AM about the 1988 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Car Customization

Ok so I plan to do several
customizations and upgrades on the
ranger I just bought.
What ones do you guys recommend
first and which ones do you think
should be done?
It is all pretty much original parts with
a few parts being replaced.

I personally want to change to
bucket seats instead of the
uncomfortable bench seat. Would S-
10 seats fit in?

And I plan to get a different hood.
The one on it is messed up.

Any one have any good
recommendations on aftermarket
grill?

Mirrors? The ones on it are horrible
and way to far down the door.

What about mechanical parts that
should be upgraded or at least
replaced?

I don't know- people really like those old Rangers- my opinion- just keep it stock, especially the bench seat- changing to buckets might be more of a hassle than you think- you will need four seat rails instead of two- and bench seats are so rare anymore- so old-school that now they are cool- a girl can snuggle up right next to you just like the old days- how cool is that?! spend the money instead getting it upholstered with something nice and door panels to match- then get some really great wheels and tires- this will really make your truck nice, and really not much effort or money- you might even have enough money to get a good paint job- to match that great old school interior- just sayin' keep it original, dress it up, and be really different-
