Saw your center console, looks good!! still working on the brackets man. And next time use like 320 or better to scuff your stuff 80 is way to harsh. And if you're painting buy some water based solvent.

Has anyone done the AAL? How difficult is it for someone who is not mechanically experienced?

YouTube it. There are tons of instructional videos, but personally I'd be too afraid of messing something up....

I've tried. I only found one video but the quality was terrible. It seemed pretty self explanitory from what I saw though.

Hey, I have 1 question and I should be done with this subject Lol.
The mounting brackets for the console, that the shell goes to, and the bracket that goes where the airbag and ashtray were are the only brackets I need to install the ford explorer full length center console?

If so, all I need is most of the bolts and I'll be ready to install.

Sounds right but I'm not 100% positive though. Glenn?

In the explorer, that big bracket, mounts to a other bracket that is welded onto the floor. And I think that's why I was getting confused before.
I just need Glenn or another member that has done the mod to confirm what I'm thinking.

Doesn't that scratch your arm up when you use it as an arm rest? Or did you do something different on the arm rest part?
