center console question

everyones consoles i've seen have been the 98-01 style,

but i've always prefered the style starting in 02 (mom has em in hers)

just wondering why everyone seems to avoid this style. i like it better, being more square off

anyone have any expertise?

Does the newer style even fit in a Ranger? I can't tell if the dash and everything is the same.

the dash were the consoles meet is totally different....unless you were to customize the dash, it wouldn't fit...and it is a lot wider than what can fit between the seats on a Ranger..

i like mine. its the one just before the change.

you could maybe put it in and it would just sit against the dash. and not fit in like the others. so itd prolly work. just have to figure out a nice way to attach it to the face where it lines up
