Hey guys I'm new to this forum I've been looking around all day on mods I can do with my explorer. I'm currently putting a new engine in mine and have decided to keep it for a while. I enlisted in us marines so I want to keep this vehicle here and don't plan on ever getting rid of it so I'd like to restore it and maybe add some cool mods but right now I just wanna fix the wrong on the inside which the only thing would be the center console armrest I have a blue interior so the armrest is blue but the fabric is torn and looks like garbage I've been looking for a new one can't seem to find any. Does anyone know where to get them? I appreciate any help I can get. I would also like to get blue led for overhead lamp and swap out dash lights to blue also anything I can get will be super helpful.

Best suggestion is a junkyard, ebay, amazong. Or if your semi crafty you can redo it yourself. For me my seat covers came with some head rests but my truck doesnt have those so i simply used one of those fits perfect. a little black electrical tape to blend it and i now have a camo arm rest also.

Lots of Explorers 98-2000 in salvage yards. My center console armrest cost me $20. If you still can't find one, deconstruct torn armrest cover and use as pattern to sew new one with fabric from JoAnns. Olefin fabric is best for wear and cleanability.
