08 console

I have a few questions on the install of one into a 2001 f350

To install it what do I need to do it like is it just un-bolt the old one and re-bolt the new one or do I need to take a seat out or what.

and what paint do I need for it to match the 2001 color?

You won't necessarily have to take the seats out, but you will have to completely unbolt them and push them around. The new console bolts down sharing 3 of its 4 bolts with the seats (both front ones) and I believe the drivers side rear.

For paint you could check with any of the sponsors that sell gauge packages, since they will most likley also carry paint/dye used for a-pillar and other gauge pods for matching the truck. ITP is one that I know of, I personally used a SEM product I got through Eastwood.com when I did my console. The console comes apart nice and easy so you don't have to worry about missing a spot or taping off all the other panels to avoid overspray.

Re: 08 console

you have to take the seats out since the console brackets go under the seat brackets plus its a good time to vaccum and clean under your seats... The 08 console uses all 4 seat bolts and you will have 2 holes left open from where the old console was. I just put the bolts back in them hole and called it a day. The paint can be bought from a sponser on here that sells gauges, its used to paint the pillar pods. I tried buying some paint from a local parts store and it didnt match at all. It wasnt even close... My interior is tan for what its worth.
