So the vinyl was somewhat molded but not as much as I was hoping. As far as quality it appears to be really nice vinyl. I also noticed the 97+ not available. I believe it's because the front seats are mounted completely different than the 96 down. The 97+ have a cross bar to mount the seats to. Idk why this would be an issue with a mold...considering they offer replacementolded carpet but not vinyl. But I think it will he quite than the carpet. But I haven't driven it yet still have to mock up the passenger seat in place to get that going. Took me about 2 ho8rs to fab brackets for the driver to sit well. I had to take a hammer and pound into the trans tunnel to clear the seat tracks. It didnt mess with anything like wiring or clearance of the trans or trace so I'm good there. But just lots of work and trimming.

So I am thinking the rubber floor in a Police version might not be as tight as I thought it would be. Some shots posted by the owner of one. Going to assume it is the rubber floor from the factory. Check out the pictures in Post #8.

Yeah the police one looks more like a "plush" rubber carpet than a full vinyl. but it looks pretty sweet! Id rock that for sure!

I was just noticing the fit. Just thought it would be better.
Did not really think of the material itself. I am kind of leaning towards your vinyl floor being a better option.

well guys I got all done today. I worked on it last night for a few hours. then finished wiring some stuff and getting the trim and everything. Was a long process but its done. Only thing left to do is to get these 2x6s installed. Will be doing that after the holiday weekend. Then I will finally be able to go wheeling and not have to worry about anything. Here is the final pictures still need to clean the dash and everything to get most of the work dust out of the vehicle. Sorry for the crappy pictures. Will take more later in the week.

Don't know if I asked before or not......why do you have both OBA and a Powertank? I am under the impression Powertank covers pretty much every use for OBA and is, in fact, OBA. If you'll pardon my bluntness for a second, it seems redundant in a negative way (considering some redundancy is a good thing) in regards to space....thus my asking.

Thanks guys! So glad this is part is all over haha!

And Superman good question, and you haven't asked yet haha. But the reason i have both is because the OBA is for my air horns, and I have the Powertank for running air tools and airing up tires. Also the main reason I even have the PowerTank is because I won it in a raffle for $40 haha. I probably wouldn't have bought a name brand power tank if i didn't win it! ahah.

Got it! Any reason you dont run the air horns with the oba and sell the power tank to a buddy? Or install in a tow rig!
