    Hi all,
    Thought I should do a little intro...I just picked up a new '09 4x4 Sport, 4.0 L, blue. Added Westin sidebars, a tri-fold tonneau cover and incredible Fia custom fit seat covers! I bought a Westin bull bar, but returned it because mounting it required me to drill a couple of big holes in the bumper to access the frame mounts and I just wasn't that sold on the look of the bull bar to make the holes. I previously owned a 2 wheel drive '88 with a 2.9 L and in between that one and this new one I've driven a '98 GMC Sonoma 4x4 for the past 11 years. All have been great trucks and hope that this new '09 hold up just as well.

    Got questions about the free 6mth Sirius radio service - I'm liking it, but I don't like the subscription fee for a built in radio. I'll post more on that later...after I fill in my profile....I live in Northern Ontario, Canada.

    How do you like your seat covers? I just bought a 2003 FX and want to cover the seats with leather or vinyl. I don't like the cloth as it collects lint and pet hair too easily.

    I think I was pretty lucky in finding these seat covers - a guy in this area had just returned his leased Ranger and kept the seat covers. He leased another Ranger but it had the bucket seats and these would not fit. I have never seen this brand before but they are a custom fit and the fit is perfect - even have the grey centre panels. They fit so well that if you didn't look closely, it is hard to even notice the covers. I think he said that he bought them at a truck cap and accessories place here in town.
