Hello,
First let me say i just bought a 1999 ranger, 4X4 with the extended cab.
only about 2 days old, but i have a question for all you ranger fans out there.

in the back of the extended cab i notice two little notches just behind each seat. what are these used for?

You should find a handle in the middle of the rear wall that will pull out a cover to hook into these notches to hide cargo in the rear floor.

Welcome aboard

I"ve noticed those same notches just behind the seats in my 92 extended cab ranger too. But I see no roller type shade. I've wondered if it was an option on my truck at the time.

Re: whats this used for??

If you check with a dealer, they may give you the part number for it. They list it as a luggage cover. The part number for a 1993-97 blue luggage cover is F47Z 1345440 AAK. I don't know if this will still fit the '99, but they should be willing to give you the number for the cover to fit yours and match your interior. You may want to check some salvage yards to see if you can take one out of a wrecked truck. The last price I have for a new one was $214.22.
