center ceiling console

Hey guys,
I'm thinkin of getting one of those ceiling consoles. I'd like one with a digital compass, you know what I'm talking about? I don't know how that all would work, I.E. where to get one, installing it, etc... so here I am askn' you. It would be installed in a 2000 Ranger XLT. I know how to wire it up, but thats about it.

Thanks,
- Jeff

Look in my Cardomain site via the signature in my link. Pages 3 an 4 are a how-to. They may have copied it here.

One usually gets them from junkyards. I've pulled a few and probably installed a dozen of them over the last 3 years or so. It's like no big deal anymore to do the install, lol.

Here's the wiring how-to that was copied over to this site:

And this is some stuff on the physical install:

So you don't need my site unless you want the bigger pictures.

On here the how-to's say "overhead console". If you search the internet in general all the terms we just mentioned are useful. "explorer overhead console" narrows it down quite a bit.
