Question OEM center console, what's underneath?

Strongly considering purchase of a 2015 Transit, but I have unique cargo requirements and could really use the few inches that are taken up by the OEM center console.

Anyone have any pictures, or knowledge, of what's behind the OEM center console?

Thanks!

I don't. But, if you really need load length, maybe get a welder to fab up a passenger seat mount similar to what I did, to get longer kayaks in the van: Project: Minimalist with kayak

Just a guess but it may be like the old Econolines and that's the rear end of the motor??

freeride,

When I was at my upfitter last week they had mine off. I don't remember anything being in the space behind it except wiring. That whole piece comes off as one, including the area around the shifter. I'll call tomorrow and see if they still have it off and if I can get a picture.

freeride,

Here is a picture, it's not from mine, they already had mine buttoned up, but it will give you an idea. It's what I remember, except having the upfitter switches, I think there was a bracket at about that height.

Thanks, looks pretty sparse under there. You'd think Ford would have a 'flat dash' option. Would be great if that gear shifter were on the column too.

So,...looks like there's space for some extra sound deadening foam inside the plastic housing. I'd love my van to be as quiet as a Bentley.

Looks like a great place to install a double din radio. 😀

Anyone happen to have additional pictures of the center console removed? Any pics from the side would be very helpful.
