Honestly?

It looks like crap. You could have had an Explorer full length console for a lot cheaper than you "built" that one for.

doesnt look like it belongs in a ranger, and not a fan of the handle. good concept though

Hey, how about next time you provide some constructive criticism instead of bashing the OP and saying that his hard work was a waste of time.

And if you're not smart enough to grasp that concept, then don't say anything.

i think its a pretty awesome idea some people just don't like the look of the explorer consoles... and maybe he had most of the materials laying around... great concept man but if it were me i would have tightened up the leather and maybe put a lock on the package slot w/ the handle but thats me... great job otherwise

I was going to do fiberglass,but i'm alergic to the chemicals,and so I could not find a explorer consol around that had a high price on it or it was busted up, materials was laying around so I built it. I'll change the handle on it and tighten the material,do a little more work on it,I wanted a floor consol now I got one for now.

IMO it looks better then anything i could've done. Like you said your not finished with it and i'm sure once it's done it will look way better.

Good Luck

I really like the form, but the covering clashes with the rest of the interior.

Even if you tightened the leather, the rest of the truck is hard plastic and vinyl, i would have just gone the easy way and match with some same colour carpet myself.

Love where you placed the key switch (i forget what it controls lol)!


Keep up the good work!

design looks good, but the vinyl could be pulled a little tighter. it doesn't look terrible, and thumbs up for going outside the norm and not putting an ex console in. but 4 days? thats nuts!

this is the one in my truck. have about 6 hours in it.

Looks pretty good. Missing cup holders though I plan on having something similar soon.

@The guy with the two tone console: Nice, Where did you get cup holder inserts like that? I have been look from some for quite some time.
