Seems wider than the explorer




This one looks like it would be a better fit. Identical to explorer ones but has a extra compartment with net at the end

1994 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Edition

At work so can't see ebay images..

But the Bronco one looks cool, may have to trim it to hug our more curvy headliner at the front though. Otherwise looks just like the expy but longer.

Yea definitely looking too wide, but it also looks like it wouldn't sit as far forward so it may be ok. Next problem would be how would you mount it?? Wonder what the moutning bracket looks like.

Here is a better look at one for a F series. I was thinking Marie at one time was wanting to add a f series into her truck

They all have the lights.

Just stay away from the sunroof model they are harder to install
