    97 Explorer Message Center, it has a length of wire attached to the backside for you to wire it into your truck. I was going to install it in mine but then installed the shorty console and did away with that plan.

    $20.00 plus whatever shipping is to your place.

    There are a lot of wires to run and a few sensors to add and chances are that it is not compatible with a Ranger PCM anyway.

    GEN 2 Explorer full length console.

    do you think the screen could be taken out and the hole be modded for a storage pocket? and could the buttons be modded to run like lights or something

    There is a different insert for the same full length console that was used on Explorers without the Message Center. It already has a storage pocket.

    I believe that the MC buttons are "momentary on" pushbuttons. A pushbutton like that would need a set of 4 relays to convert it to an on-off switch.

    Will it be compatible with a ranger pcm?
