You can either get some buckets, or hack the middle part of your bench. need to remove your current arm rest. Relocate the air bag shut off and floor cupholders. Then you can squeeze in the console. Some get some self tapping screws for the metal mount for the console. Others have just relied on the buckets holding the console in place for side to side movement and then the part that mounts to the dash holds it from front to back movement.

Also a good bet would be to get the items from a similar year to your ranger. A lot of items have a crossover effect.

Here is a starting point on how to do it, models will differ but the process is the same.

Explorer Console Upgrade

i did this swap on my truck the hardest part was cutting the seat. the rest was pretty easy. i cut my carpet so i could line everything up easier. i dont think i have any pics of the install but if you have questions ask me.

Well here is a little list of what seats will bolt in, but any seat can be made to fit. Only thing you will need to keep are your seat rails (brackets).
