Default explorer center console

I have a set of. 95 explorer limited seats and the center console and I was wondering how y'all got the center console to mount to the floor in your rangers? I have all the brakets and hardware so do I just shove a bolt through the bottom of the floor and bolt it in or would I have to rig it up diffrently?

the explorer mount needs to be modified a little.

you have an air bag if you have the rounded dash. which you should as it started in 95. 95 had no passenger side, and they started putting them in in 96.

back to the OP:

i know the newer trucks have dimples in the floor where that is supposed to mount. might pull your rubber mat back and check.

i don't doubt it. i said they started adding them in 96. not all got them, it was an option.

however, i would love to see the no bag in the steering wheel. that would either tell me the truck was wrecked and not replaced, or there is one there
