Just finished replacing complete 5288 interior in black, including the roof all from K & M. Everything fit perfectly and easily and looks great.

I put a Fehr western kit in my 6588 last summer. Made it look really nice. My door panels are still original thankfully. Nobody has door panels that are any good in my opinion. Rollie

Has anyone tried these panels yet. Just wondered if they were worth the $272 for a bit of storage?
