Default custom center console with bucket seats?

okay i found 2 leather bucket seats out of an explorer that match my interior that i was thinking of putting in my truck. and since i wont have a center console i was thinking of putting a custom little box in the middle with a bazooka tube inside of it. sorry if this is in the wrong section if it has to do with audio. i was wondering if anyone had pics of just a basic center console, not like a fiber glass or anything intense.

My ex made one when he put buckets in his... just out of wood then covered in carpet... he's not on this forum though so no pics, sorry... PITA to watch him make though 'cause of all the measuring and cutting having to be right on...

Personally I like the stock look. See if you can find one of these. I think it will fit your year as well.



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.

I gotcha. Then i would just get creative and make it custom

http://www.allthingsjeep.com/27576.html - I saw this thing awhile back when i was shopping for my bronco. Its for a jeep but it would be cool if you could rig something like this up....

I think the pic 05RangerEdge posted was of his stock setup, which is exactly the look I'd die for in my truck. Unless Explorer And Jeep center consoles are identical/very similar?
