Yes that's stock. And I think its explorer thats close to identical. Jeep would prob need some fabricating.

You know, I like the bench seats a lot better than I thought I would, I don't really think they're all that uncomfortable. It's just that they make my truck feel so dated and tiny. IMO the two buckets and the mondo center console just give the interior a much more 'big truck' feel and look.

I am pretty sure you would have to find one that came out of another truck. Honestly the explorer console looks like it is alot easier to find. If you really wanted the ranger one im sure you could dig one up somewhere but from what I have heard my console is pretty rare

Something like that. Check out the thread below. There are several consoles discussed maybe it will help.

i pulled my seats out of a 96 mx6, had to build the mounts though, i also built a custom console and put a 10" sub in it, i did have to do some fiberglass work but it was my first time to do any fiberglass work and it wasnt that bad. the explorer seats and console route is the easiest way to go and it will look completly factory but you cant build it the way you want it.

Thanks man, it sounds really good but i dont have the amp turned up too much because i listen to country and i dont really want it too hit really hard, but its a good solid deep sound, i have turned the amp up as much as i wanted to push it before just to see what it would sound like and it still sounded good. i guess i didnt metion that the amp is under the console so you cant see it either, but i did have to put a small fan under there just to make sure it didnt overheat.

It wont slam but its got a 6.5 in it. Mine came factory but check out STL's truck (STL -hope you don't mind the reference) he added one and put an aftermarket sub in his.
Ya I got a 6.5 alpine type r in there. Mine will shake your soda when cranked up

Good luck finding one though. They are pretty rare. Only seen 2 on eBay before. Last one went for 186 dollars.

You don't even need to find bucket seats just cut your 60/40 seat down easy mod takes about 10 minutes with a hack saw
