#117 of 126 Replacing Front Buckets With Bench
Feb 22, 2009 (12:47 pm)
I live in South Florida and Sawgrass Ford refused to replace my 2003 Ford Expedition's front bucket seats with a bench.
They said I might want to try a private "pimp my ride" kind of place, but the dealer will not do such modifications.
I really need space for a 9th passenger. Anyone else replace bucket seats with a bench. How much did it cost? Who do I call to get this done? Anyone recommend someone in South Florida for this work?

The dealer is probably concerned with liability (or their insurance company is). The bucket brackets and floor pan holes may not match the bench seat hardware so there could be an increased risk of seat failure in the event of an accident.
But a body shop may be willing to try something, or maybe there's a van conversion kind of place around with experience doing this kind of mod.

I have the 99 Expedition XLT 4 X 4 and I have a nice third row seat( beige? cloth) that isn't doing me any good and would be willing to sell it to someone that can use it. I don't have kids and, just me, my wife and the parents go out. My kids are grown and gone. Is there a FOR SALE forum here? Scott TheNascarDudeaol.com

Thanks, I will try that. It is just taking up valuable space. Scott
#125 of 126 Removal of 2007 XLT front center console
Dec 02, 2009 (12:15 pm)
Does anyone know how to remove the center console between the front bucket seats in a 2007 XLT? I'm installing a video screen, DVD head unit in the dash and a backup camera. I would like to get into the center console and tap the stock AUX inputs so they can be routed into the new radio's AUX inputs. THis way the RCA jacks facing the back seat will still work (I'll actually use one for video & the other for audio) so a game system, etc. could be plugged in. I'm using a Metra XSVI-5520-Nav harness to wire in the new radio. Are the aux inputs still available on that if you're aware of it?
Any help is appreciated. I haven't found any center console info on the 'net. And I am referring to accessing/opening the center console itself, not the front panel around the radio in the dash, etc.
