You run a center console. No luck with getting cup holders down there...

Well.....you've got options....the hard ones or the easy ones...

If I wasn't able to find the 02-03 Twin stick stuff, I was going to destroy 3 stock boot holders/cup holder by cutting off the driverside cupholder, and glassing in a older model's tcase bezel. All custom and stuff and hopefully I'd make it nice enough to make it look factory.

OR....use what RazorsEDGE used....a early gen BII bezel. I think his came from like a '90 Ranger? So I know i've gotten them from BII's and Rangers before. They are the less offset bezels. Ryan said the heavy offset bezels wont really work on our new gen trucks. I was thinking of doing his setup as well. You'd lose those cupholders and bezel anyhow, and you'd have to figure out a way to cover up that RCM in front of the shifters.

Here's Ryan's setup:

At first I had the RCM covered in mine with the factory level II RCM cover, but have since removed the RCM completely, hence no need for any kind of cover, no airbags anymore but heck who needs those anyways. For cupholders I'm just using a shorty console, but I guess you're more concerned about covering the RCM than actually having cupholders.

You know....I found a manual trans equipped 99ish Explorer and it has a non-RCM cover, one cup holder on the passenger side, and a weird tray thingy on the driver side...MAYBE be able to make that work? idk. I'll see if I can find a pic...



If you want me to nab that for ya, let me know and I'll text ya a quote for it from the yard.




Ranger is his SN...he's the black double lifted RCD'd '03...he twin sticked his using Nissan Xterra or Nissan Frontier boot. Looks pretty niftly...but again...he lost the cupholders.

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...case-swap.html




Basically..you are SOL without some glasswork or plasticfiller work.




OR.....cut your 60 into a 40, throw in a shorty console...and BAM! You got 2 cupholders again...

Not factory carpet and a crappy install might I add, but there is no RCM under there. If I had done a better job on the install it would be completely flat where the RCM once was.


Can I say I NEVER want to replace carpet again. That was a huge PITA. I'd rather swap a tranny or install another lift kit.....

HAHAH...indeed it is! I found one yesterday...but it goes with the tranny and same goes with the L2 shifter too!



Marcus....you're gonna definately lose at least 1 cupholder. There's no room down there on the driverside for a cupholder.

Your truck didn't come with it, you have to locate it somewhere. You can get them from ford for around $230. Other than getting them from ford, they are super hard to find. They ONLY came in the 02 and 03 trucks with manual t-case.

You gotta have this part for a manual case swap on all 01+ trucks. Well technically you don't have to have it, but you'll get a constant CEL and no speedo or odo or trip.

BAM!

Needs to have the VSS sensor AND the threaded bungs. Otherwise, you won't have a speedo. They only had these tailhousings on the twin stick 02-03 trucks. It's like a $350 ford part, possibly more? idk. Mine came with the case.

Good luck. If you need to go to Ford here is the part #1L5Z-7A039-CA. I just checked the price at Fast Parts Network - Home and its $260.

Haha sounds like fun dood. Yea i have a center console so i still have 2 cup holders up front and then the two in the rear(not used).

The boots i used were from a nissan and they work great.

I paid just over $200 for the tail housing extension. It took me and my uncle ( ford parts manager) almost a week to get the correct part number and find the correct extention housing. Well worth in IMO.

Make sure you get the extension with the VSS. I have another extension from a 99 ranger with no vss, but has the manual t-case bungs.

Good luck. If you have any questions let me know.

Read my thread if you havent. I have pretty much part listed needed for the swap.

Here is RangerExtreme's set up. He kept his cup holders. What he did was was welded on some pipe to move the shifter over to the drivers side 3 inches. Ask him he can explain it better than me. I know the shifter cover came out of a F150 and a lil trimming had to be done to that and the cup holders.
