Default Explorer Center Console vs Water Bottle

Question to all of yous with an explorer center console: does your cupholder suck? First drive with mine today, and a regular bottle of water CANNOT stay in the cupholder during a slight turn. I was afraid my starbucks will fall out of the b*tch. Any help? fixes? Oh, and the rear cupholders are a joke too!

Lol my Ranger cup holders suck too, so do the ones in my Sonoma. I think it's just part of owning a small truck. If you take the little cup out of the bottom it might help. I learned to just hold on to whatever I have in a bad corner. Idk if there are any fixes.

i know your pain when it comes to the cup holder. i have one cup holder and its way to big for anything normal sized so everything flies out. What i did is i have the ash tray cup thing and i pulled that out and everything fits in that hole perfectly... it does look a little bad when theres nothing in it tho

word up John, i'll figure something out.

Justin, the cupholder was all good. It was missing a few things here and there, but since I had two, I just pieced them together haha
