05 Replacing front armrest
Hi, I'm new. I am a former Ford in name (hence the user name) and have always had a Ford in the family.
We just bought a 2005 Expedition XLS. It has a front split bench with a flip-down armrest. I traded my '06 Explorer XLT for this truck and I really miss my center console and storage. The little dash cup holder tray thing just isn't cutting it.
We didn't spend a lot on this truck and can't afford to put a lot into it, so I am thinking used parts. What I need to know is what is compatible. My brother's 2008 F150 and dad's 2001 F250 both have flip-down armrests with storage. Ideally, that's what I'd like to replace the one that's in it. Would one from a 2005 F150 fit? Can it be modified to fit?
I know my other option is to replace the whole front seat with 2 buckets and a center console, but I'm sure that is more than what I would want to spend on this little project.
