Overhead Console Question

Alright i was looking into installing the explorer overhead console in my ranger. The only problem i have is my ranger has a sunroof, and i am not sure whether or not there is enough roof space to mount the console on. Also is it mounted on a curved or flat area of the roof? I could not tell by the pictures how large the unit was so i am unsure if it will work. If anyone has mounted it with the sunroof please let me know, or if you have any suggestions.

All i am finding is ones with a sunroof control, not an actual unit for the sunroof models, the ones with the controls are the same size, could you put a link of one for sunroof models if you find one. Thanks

I have sunroof console shells available. If you can't find a sunroof one, I can probably supply you with one. Not sure what colors I have though. Probably a blue shell and a tan one, maybe a grey one, don't remember. You still need to get al the other parts and I don't have the proper mounting bracket for it. A cut down standard bracket will work though.

If you get a console, let me know and you can have one of these for $20 shipped.
