HI!... Well I got my EXPLORER overhead console. It was bought as a kit. It came with the mounting bracket, temp sensor and pigtails for the sensor and the console. Even came with the mounting screws. lol! The only problem it is light blue.

That got fixed quickly. I dismantled the console and put it in my sandblasting cabinet on low PSI. About 40PSI. Worked perfectly. I luv not having to sand. lol! Got it painted tonight as well with the same trim paint I used on my dual "A" pillar gauge pod. Just got to put it back together tomorrow and then install it when I have time. Here's a few pics :









HI!... Here's some updated pics :











HI!... Well I just finished the mechanical aspect of the console install. I'm probably going to wait until the weekend to do the electrical. I think it turned out well. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get my hands on a EXPLORER center console. A guy I know says he has a bunch of them at the junk yard he works at.

Here's a few pics :









HI!... I bought mine off E-BAY. It was like $50.00(U.S). Make sure you get one one without the sun roof button. They sell them on there as kits. Make sure you get the wiring harness pigtail for the console and the temp sensor and it's pigtail. You also want the steel mounting bracket.

Here's a link to the wiring needed to be done :

I want one of these SO bad! I keep looking on ebay, but none of them have the wiring harness pigtail for the console and the temp sensor and it's pigtail or the steel mounting bracket.
