center shifter in my 99

So after searching around and seeing the fellow powerstrokers OBS install, I decided to try it as well.
Bought my center shifter from a junkyard here in Anchorage for 80$ . took the console , shifter cable,and all wiring plugs with 10" of wire on it to have some play room (not important to me as I do wiring,but important if you don't have access to wiring!).
Started off by cleaning the console as our trucks at junkyard sit in the elements. Cleaned up nice and got it all pulled apart to clean any deep burried dirt.

Next I pulled my center seat out , its a 40/20/40 split or jump seat whichever y'all call it. It takes a T55 torx to pull the seats, and a 16 or 17 deep socket to pull the other seat bolts. A 10mm ratcheting wrench or short socket to pull the jump seat itself.

Easy simple fast removal, straight toward.

I will post pics as I continue ! Hang in there

I need help on seats, as my seats aren't wide enough with this new center shifter console, I know the 04-08 f150s are wider and the 08up super duty's are as well. Will f150s fit or do I need to do super duty's

Do you have leather seats currently? If they are grey colored, Id drive up from Soldotna and buy them if you change seats.

Oh, BTW: Nice project. Look forward to pics

Finished with the wiring, od light and shifter cable. Drives and functions just need to securely mount itg. Gonna raise it since I don't like how low she sits, go up about 1.75 to 2 inches. Its amazing having a center shifter. As for the hole in my shroud, I'm ordering the shroud from a Manual trans truck as it only has a slot opening for the key release. Then fab a Abs insert and paint it to match.

Install is easy! Wiring is slam dunk, for me agt least and don't worry I wrote down the wires and all that. Cable relocation was OK, u have to mock up the cable lock since the superdutys is a little longer. I used abs and some screws and a dremel to replicate the same lock in but obvioulsy 1.5inches longer to compensate for the difference.

For the od light I flush mounted a 3mm led light in the console and wired her up. Can't see it until its on, perfect!

I'll post pics but the forum doesn't like my tablet much so its kinda a pain.

I got my console for 80 bucks at the junkyard. Materials to install free, since I work in a shop.took me 3 hrs to do after I stopped surfing Google and the F150 Forums where I found my wiring guides.

To all who may want o do it. If you can get that console for a decent price, go for it!
