it has nothing in common with a ranger. the older style or any explorer SPORT or 2006 and DOWN Sport Trac has the same dash as a ranger, thus why the console matches up. this on WONT at all... see here is its dash...
either D or nick was building a custom console to make fit parts of a newer exploder center console.
Best part of the deal is that the newer exploders, sport tracs and sports, is that the interior grey is the same shade as the newer ranger grey. They hadtwo different greys older is a light grey, newer is a dark grey. just some info.
