Any advice? If I didn't really like my truck, I would drill mounting holes and use self tapping cap screws to mount the ctr console
They'll fit just fine then but thats the only way you'll be able to mount the aluminum bracket to the floor. I'd just go with self tapping screws and then seal it from the underside. There's probably 4 marks on the stamped steel floor of the cab that show where the bracket should mount. For the front of the console, once the bracket is in place, you can use velcro on the front underside to hold it onto the carpet. 2 less holes to put in the floor.
I did this swap on my old truck and my current truck has an explorer full length console.
