November 25, 2004How hard would it be to install a overhead console in a 99 F-150 that did not come with one and where do I get one?
November 25, 2004No problem. I installed one in my 02 f150 from an expedtion.works great pretty easy install just remeber to get the mounting bracket with the console
November 27, 2004I'm planning on doing the same to my 97 eventually. I've found people selling them on EBAY. Sometimes its tough though, you gotta play around with how you word the Item Search. try something like:: f150 overhead console... or.. Ford overhead console.
If you wanna go new, mabey you could order one through Ford??
Good luck with it

Is that just a filler plate in your console that you have the guages sitting in?? I like that.
November 27, 2004I found a few on Ebay one was complete with the mounting bracket
November 27, 2004Hey rus did you have to get another head liner I was looking at my wifes stx and her headliner looks alot different than the one I have in my truck?
December 4, 2004What I did was put styrofoam inserts that I cut to match shape of console between rooftop and liner thus causing the liner to fit to the console
December 8, 2004rus,
Did you have to get a new headliner? I have been contiplating doing that for my 98. I know that I'll need to get the shorter visors, but not sure if you could get by with the same headliner.
December 8, 2004I'm currently scouring ebay and salvage yards for an overhead. I've noticed some consoles are auctioned off with the outside temp sensor included. Does anyone know how these are hooked up? Thanks.
December 8, 2004somewhat. I took a flat black piece of plastic and glued to the original ac control panel and then drilled the 2 1/16 inch holes into complete setup using factory knob holes on control panel as the guide.
Also yes that is the original factory headliner from my truck. I went to a nearby craft store and purchased a piece of rubber foam that can be cut to any shape desired. I cut out the outline of the console bracket with sharp razor knife. I then mounted bracket to rooftop. Then test fit the console to roof top. Any area where the roof top left a large gap I fill in the space between the headliner and the roof to push the headliner down to fit to the console lines.
Also look under Expedition console or Navigator console. These usually produce best results for the consoles on Ebay
December 8, 2004anyone know of an overhead console w/ a tv screen?
