Honestly I don't like what you did with the ipod just 'cause you have the slot for it so I would like to see that cord come out near the cup holders. Other than that looks really clean!

Wow, thanks guys for all the responses, and all the compliments.

I'm not on my computer right now, so I don't have a lot of a time but will try to answer a few of your questions.

The seats were really easy, I can get some pictures later, and I'll draw you a pretty paint picture of the diagram. Basically just a 30amp fused circuit.

The bezel was out of an explorer, and yes, the fog light switches are interchangeable. I took out the rear defroster cuz I don't need it, put in a second switch for aux lights later. Maybe when I get a bull bar Ill put lights on it and use that switch.

Marie - I didn't put the ipod through the cup holder because I wanted.. 1) The iPod to be away from anything that I might put in the cup-holders, and 2) Hidden from people seeing it. With it under the armrest its hidden, and it won't hinder any cup holder cubbys

And haha, smakes is right you can't die seats downey... but you can dye the seats. If you look closely under the console, you can see the tan it used to be. I talked to people who dye couches after repairs and they recomended dyes for seats. I used it, and it worked amazing. I tested on a piece of leather and couldn't scratch it off even when I tried. I have no doubt they will hold up well. Some guys on explorerforums have done their seats too. I can link up the site when I get home.

At first, I was like "holy balls!@!! Trevor joined". Then I realized, this ain't Trevor. lol.


Literally, my friend Trevor's interior is just like yours except he's got a Hurst with the Fx4 ball on it, a black center console, and a double din touch screen. Every thing else the exact same.



I don't so much like the ipod location either. But hey, if it works.... I prefer my sitting in the glovebox ipod and it being controlled by my headunit...but that's just me.

Haha X4!

But I can't control it through my head unit, so I have to have access to it. Price I pay for keeping the stock cd player. Had to work with what I had, and I thought this would be the most convenient / secure location. Just working with what I got!!

Haha, didn't mean to sound defensive.. just trying to be informative on my reasoning If I go aftermarket, it would definitely go in the glove box

This is the adapter I used, if anyone is curious. I bought it on EBAY tho, so I got mine for 50. Shop around It works well and will work with almost all factory ford radios.
