Question for the overhead console guru's

Here is my question, which is better? I have two displays for the first one it is all black and has a rubber or neoprene cover that goes over the switches part number F67F-19A548-1.
Second has a white back switches are molded in it's part number is YL2F19A548-AA. Is there a difference
What to get this together and would like to use the best parts possible so i don't have to mess with it later.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks,

Here is a picture of what I got today for $17.00

I picked the one with the neoprene boot over the push buttons. Got it all ready to go bench tested all the electrical seems to be working. So should have it and the mirror in by Saturday.
Hopefully i picked the right one!

No, the console was out of a explorer that had the front crushed pretty good so couldn,t get to it. Look for another vehicle but either someone already got it or didn't have one.
I'll wire it up tomorrow and leave the temp wires were I can get to them and hook one up when the opportunity arises.
Anyone want to trade a display unit for a sensor?

It might be a good idea to bench test these before mounting in case you have a color preference. Early Gen2 Ex consoles had a bluish display, later Gen2's were green. The display color difference MIGHT account for the different part numbers. Don't know.

Thanks I did that yesterday, both are a blue color. The only difference I can see in the display is the all black case with the neoprene buttons cover seems to respond to direction change a whole lot quicker.

Was back out at the "used auto parts yard" found the sensor already got the console in now to finish wiring it up and install the mirror and wiring,
What is the best place to install the sensor without having to run wires all the way up to the front of the cab.
Any serviceable issues running it outside the frame rail below the cab?

It needs to be all the way up front or engine heat will cause false readings. A good place is on the core support near the DS headlight but not too close to the radiator itself.

Thanks that isn't the answer I wanted to hear but I am sure Ford did put it there for a reason.
Again thanks for the info I guess I got more wire to run.

Finally got everything in and it is working great went out and drove in circles to calibrate the compass so it is all dialed in. Temperature is spot on drove past 2 outdoor thermostats and all reading the same temp., mounted the sensor under the core support.
Was behind the stereo so I hooked up my ipod connection picture of head unit.
