They're from OPT7 on Ebay. No retainer. And thanks!

Thanks. lol. Edge decals came from Fuzedmods on Ebay. Just search Ford Ranger Edge decals and you should find them under multiple listings.

I too was surprised when I rolled up and saw that.

Yea, found 3 on a Facebook group for $400, brand new never used. Guy kept the fourth one for a spare. I needed tires, so I jumped on them.

I'll order a fourth one this week so I can have a complete set.

Pretty much. lol. But at least what Dewey and I have is minimal. Some guys are painting their sway bars, upper control arms, tie-rods, etc. I'm perfectly happy with my torsion key covers and my engine crossmember.

Don't do the rear axle unless it's black haha. I paint my suspension components black to help prevent rust haha

So I installed a new center console. I was tired of the noisy 2nd gen console, and couldn't help but wonder if I could make a 3rd gen Expo console work. Well I did make it work.

Even better, the console I pulled came from a rare 2002 Manual Trans Explorer XLS, so the console has the cutout for the shifter, and the cupholders are relocated away from the shifter so you can still hold drinks without hitting them in 2nd, 4th, and Reverse. As an added bonus, the back of the console has no a/c controls or a/c vents, just a set of cupholders.

Also finally upgraded to a 2 din head unit.

Not quite. None of the brackets match up to the Ranger's floor or dash contours. I used the stock rear bracket from the Expo, but I cut it down to a smaller size and had to beat it flat in order to get it to work in my truck. There is a spot mid way down the console where you can use self tapping screws to hold the front. That's basically it.

I also had to relocate my seat belt pre-tensioners closer to the seats because the 3rd gen Expo console is around 2" wider than the older console.

Wasn't any worse than installing a 2nd gen console, just a different execution.

Didn't think it would be too awful different. Kind of a bummer that it doesn't pull right up to the dash like the 2nd gen does. Never the less, nice clean install. Looks right at home sitting there.
