That's the good life!Thursday and Friday I drove it out hunting. It did very well but the little plug on the high pressure power steering hose blew the O-ring out and started leaking. Luckily I had a couple wrenches and was able to tighten it up enough to stop the leaking. When I dropped the tire pressure down to 15 psi my fuel mileage dropped to 11 mpg. So I’ll be adding onboard air sooner than I anticipated. The electric fan is keeping up well so far. I haven’t drove it when it’s over 90 deg yet because the AC isn’t charged or hooked up so I’m not sure about how it will do when that’s hooked up.
The console was part of the Audiophile audio package that was offered as an optional extra between 2004-2008 on super cab xlt, edge/sport, and fx4 level 2. inside the console hides a custom shaped subwoofer with an 8.5" speaker pointed at the floor, and a 290-watt amp. the console itself is an extension off the mini floor console you get with bucket seats. looking at the Ranger brochures from the time, Ford did extremely little advertising that the console was even an option; maybe one picture typically printed with text about leather seat options. since it was the middle audio package not many people opted for the 290-watt(cuz if your getting audio you just go straight for the Tremor audio, or you get the entry so you get some slightly nicer speakers) needless to say, because of that and the fact that these consoles aren't made anymore, and can only be found in junkyards if your very lucky, or private hands, they are very rare, and seemingly hold their value. Junkyard if your very lucky, otherwise if you want it a few hundred plus shipping at least.what is special about that center console? i have never heard of it, is why i ask
