I think he's just asking if the overhead consoles came with climate control.

I have never seen an Explorer overhead console with climate control. Mine had the outside temp, compass, dome light, and a compartment for glasses.

Well that definitely does have HVAC controls. I have never seen one like that in a Ranger-based Explorer though. Not sure if that would fit or work in a Ranger.

Edit...since you mentioned that it was for '97-'02 models, I'm guessing that is for an Expedition and not an Explorer. The climate controls are for the Expedition's rear HVAC.

I've never seen anyone attempt it. Not saying it hasn't been done but I don't think it has on this site. Try RPS

It may be too wide to fit on the raised area in the middle of the headliner on a Ranger. Ask the seller for measurements.
