04-08 F150 Center Console & Shifter in 96 F350

This will be the home of my build. I believe it will be the first time it has been done. This started 3 weeks ago as a late night conversation and is now a complete project. The whole thing took 2 weeks to the day to complete.
I want to give a huge thank you to Zach (forddieseldoctor) for giving me the wiring information needed to complete this mod.
Thanks also to Garrett (weareweird69) for his support, and to Bill (alberta 7.3) for making sure the safety features were kept intact.
All pics and information for the build will be posted in this first post for ease of understanding.
Console arrived today, for anyone wondering exactly what I am doing....
The console and shifter I used are from an 06 F150 FX4
In position

I got the console to sit lower and in the correct position by taking out the heat tube under it, as that wont be used.
Console mount

Console mounted

Dash wings installed

Shift cable modified and installed, didnt even need to adjust cable, the spot I modified it to fit made it the perfect length. I used a file to cut new grooves into the cable lock to fit the shifter


New front console, I need to find better matching black and gray, but the overall fit is pretty good




Console disassembled for paint and paint matched parts.




Dont need this anymore

Console back in matching the rest of the interior



Wiring reasearch, Thank you very very much Zach

Here is the wiring hooked up to test and LED for the OD off



Everything tied up, complete and test driven




Od button on & off




This mod is complete. Thanks for watching.
