Do the 2nd row seats have armrests if there is no center console?

No, the 2nd row seats do not have armrests without the console, at least not on our SEL model. Maybe on the Limited, it might have them.

Nope, not even on the Limited.

"My Freestyle has captains chairs without the console and I prefer it that way. No problem when seats folded to haul things. "
How does the FS manage to provide a floor for cargo? When the 2nd row is folded, is there simply a gap where the console would normally be located?

Yes, but hasn't been a problem so far in hauling anything. Extra leg space for 3rd row passengers is the big plus for not having it.

I just bought a ford freestyle sel and was also looking for a bull bar. I couldn't find one specifically designed for the freestyle, but I did find one for a ford escape (which probably could be mounted but not sure). You can check it out here:
I did find something called a safari light bar which is similar and is supposed to fit a ford freestyle sel, here:
Not quite as cool as a bull bar, but should do the job. I am going to get one and will let you know how it turns out.

I don't think you'll find too many people interested in putting a "bull bar", cow catcher, brush guard, or what ever you wish to call it on a Freestyle. These are family cars, not safari vehicles. If you really wanted to be ruff and tumble in a Ford you should have bought an Explorer. A bull bar on a Freestyle is like dressing up a bride on her wedding day with boxing gloves and a hockey mask.
Just one man's opinion.

You are probably right but I bought a Freestyle instead. And now I need some protection for my emergency lights, bumper and grill when I have to take the Freestyle on back roads at night, which is often. So I too, am looking for a brush guard that will fit.
And no matter what the bride wore, I'm still married to her.

Did you have the safari light bar installed on your freestyle sel? How does it look? What was the final cost? Do you like it?
I ask as I just purchased a freestyle limited and think the safari light bar would add nicely to the look of my freestyle, but I do worry about cost...
#214 of 214 Anyone have any luck finding a 2nd row console?

I am looking for a 2nd row console for my 2007 Freestyle in that light tan color. Doesn't have to be new. I have looked everywhere? Only ones I found came right from the dealer for $240
