2004 center console in my 2001 D2
Posted 18 July 2012 - 11:40 AM
Marty Powell (Drillbit on DWeb) got a 2004 in a few weeks ago and I figured this was my chance to get the center console. At the same time my plan was to swap out the cigar lighter with a standard US sized one. I found a part number for one on DWeb but the connections on the back weren't a direct fit. Plus a tab broke the first time I tried removing the housing around the bulb (for the green ring). It turns out the 2004 version actually fits the power adapter plugs pretty well so it stayed in place.
After doing the CDL install a few years ago, I had a good idea what was involved, and it took less than an hour start to finish. An added bonus is that the lid to the cubby box is covered in leather with a little padding, unlike the original solid plastic one from my truck. The color of the new one is lighter than the previous console, but it still matches the trim and Wet Okole seat covers.
Anyways, here are some shots of the install.

So the decision was made to simply replace the center console form a 2004 D2.
Wow, I wish I has time to change a console rather than remembering which way to pull the lever .... or pealing off the sticker ...
I applaud your attention to detail.

The name of the company making the seat covers is WetOkole (wet ass in Hawaiian).

I like this post B. Funny thing is that I don't even have a sticker on my truck.... I just know where to put my shifter. Dave can chime in here.....

Here's an idea for you Pedram if your fab time permit. Does it make sense and can you fab a back plate and top plate to provide a more solid mounting surface for a phone and GPS - see pic 1. Edges for top plate needs to be rounded and clean to prevent cuts. Open to other suggestions also.
Like to be able to bolt on a Iphone car mount (pic 2) on one side, and GPS car mount (pic 3) on the other side unto this place.
I was thinking of using the "No drill cradle Ram Mount" (cost $80) that connects the the existing seat floor bolt for larger devices e.g. Ipad or tablet (pic 4), but if space permits, I can just use a cradle mount for $30 and mount it on this place.
What do you think?

The seat bracket idea is great. Better for bigger objects. Out of the way for the driver. Little more bulky but works.

Two years later.... well I'm in the process of fixing mine. The storage bin on mine is cracked to Tom. I bet mine is worse.
When I last had mine out I noticed the screw mounts are like "feet" and consequently all of the pressure is on those two feet. So I made a small bock of wood the thickness of the gap and cut two holes for the feet so the bottom of the cubby fits flush with the block.. solid now!
