I modified a shifter and console to work. The shift pattern was quick and short, but smooth with no problems. I got the shift boot at a auto junk yard. I just looked around there until i found one to fit.

Thanks guys! I am going to look into that soon, Just got the console a few hours ago and i am excited to start working on it!

There is an upholstery shop down the street I am going to stop by real quick as well and see what they have to say about it.

Also still trying to figure out the cleanest way to attach the shift boot to the console!

Hey guys I just swapped out my 60/40 bench seat for bucket seats from a ford escort GT. I have a 91 ranger I was wondering what years of explorers would work for a shorty center console? Thanks any help would be great

Thanks, sorry I'm using my phone because mah lady is on the computer. The install really pretty easy, just time consuming. It all bolts right up with no modification, the most annoying part is swapping the railing. The seats were 18 from my local junkyard, the turtle wax brand scrubber I bought to clean them was 3 dollars, the seat covers were 35 from wally world. They are the same seats in a mustang. They are super comfortable compared to.my old ones
