Another center console question

I have a 2008 Ranger Ext Cab XLT. I want to do the 60/40 to the 40/40 seat mod and install a center console. Does anyone know what year/years explorer consoles will work in my truck?

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Wrong. 98-01 full length. You can also get a full length out of a Ranger, they look pretty good.

I guess full lengths... This '06 Trac has a different cup holder insert, I kinda like it.

i didn't know any expo had vynal floor! sweeeet.


ya.....so long the explorer has the same dash as the ranger...it'll fit.

the newer style ones are not able to be used in a manual transmission truck though.

i know it's hard to tell in this pic..but i believe this is an 05 expo sport....

It's not just a direct swap like the 98-01 Expo seats is it?

If you find one of these consider your self lucky. They are a lot harder to come by then a explorer console.
