I've got most of the center console at home after a couple trips to the local u pull, but pickings are very slim, so i'll have to go back a couple times to get the rest of the ac control panels and all that fun stuff. BTW I got one of the consoles that had the factory cd changer in it, but i took it out because it will be easier to wire an aftermarket one to the aftermarket radio. but the multiple accessory points and usb slots are very intriguing I was also wondering if you could do a write up on the install buggman

Not too difficult. Order a custom boot from Redlinegoods and mod the console per these instructions:

Junkyard. Source it from a 95~01 4-door Explorer.

This mod is one of my top prioritiesssss. Only issues I have are

-Finding one LOL
-Matching color (help? interior is blue)
-Dealing with seats, as I have 60/40s.

Ultimately I'm wondering what I should do, cut the 60/40s down into bucket style and have them reupholstered, or find some somewhere. and how would I color match the console to what I have? the install of the console would be cake =D I'd even pull a buggman and mod to maintain the integrity of the airbag... just in case. =)

just cut the 60/40 seat to make buckets, or if possible upgrade to explorer leather buckets, just get 97 or older seat tracks and ull be fine

Are all explorer consoles the same or what years would fit in a 2003? Just picked up some lvl 2 bucket seats and now I just need a full length center console.
