Default center console - scarce item?

I'm looking to swap my jump seat for a center console in my 2012 XLT like a bunch of guys have done here.

Looking through ebay I don't see a single one. Unless I have the wrong search parameters? Its 09+ that fits right? I don't care about the colour because I'll be painting it regardless.

Anyone else have another place to acquire these from? Or selling one? (I can't post in trade forum yet)

Go to your local junk yard and find a wrecked truck to pull one from.

Ill try that...not sure if there is one in my town. Seems like that might be a bit of a longer shot since its from 2009+ and not an older model

I just purchased the flow through center console on ebay today. I have a column shifter but I will be keeping that. I am mounting an IPad in the dash much like the guy from Sound Man Car Audio did but I want to keep the factory radio controls and figured I could modify the plate that surrounds the shifter and cup holders to house them.

Ipad in trucks are pretty sweet. I love the first comment on that page

"What a great investment!!! The iPad will retain its value longer than the Ford!!!"

The consoles must not be very scarce. I had one for sale for almost a year at almost half the price of all the other. Finally sold it a couple of months ago for $150 to a guy that thought it was too expensive.

Been checking ebay for a couple weeks and only came across that one over priced one.

I've found some available at salvage yards in other cities not too far away, so I'll probably go that route.

I just traded for a 03 Screw last week and was thinking about a center floor console to mount a cb radio on. I'm not finding anything made for the truck either. Thats a big space down there and nobody made anything for it? I don't really want to drill bolt holes in the dashboard.

Get a center console out of an 97-03 expedition it goes all the way to the dash and give you extra storage and fills the space. A lot of guys on here have done that mod, there's a write up on the site somewhere you can search for.
