What up guys! My center console currently looks like this.

I'm about to start a project to change it up. I am going to built a new fiberglass top for it, that include my gauges and permanently mounted switches instead of my switch box. So I'm looking for some suggestions/ideas on other possible changes i should consider. This sometimes is a daily so it needs to be practical. Thanks for any input.

Thanks and i wouldn't change it if i didn't need to. My air gauges are above my mirror and they keep pulling the mirror off the windshield. This is the 4th time in less than a year.

are you going to make the console reach all the way to the dash? it would look cool to see the shifter in a custom console. would the shifter obstruct the view of the gauges if you mount them where the cig lighter would go?

That is a thought i've had. But not sure if i will take it to the dash or not. Yeah being in the cig lighter spots would obstruct plus i have 3 gauges.

you have an idea of where you want to mount the gauges? are you looking for for a custom mounting spot? I would think you are limited because of the shifter if that is the case.:imo

OMG one of my favorite trucks on here!!! Have you decided if you want to make the console go around the shifter or just up to it? I would def. incorporate some cupholders as well if this is a daily sometimes...

Thanks Marcos. I have a couple idea I'm floating around in my head but it would be a total interior strip down and rebuild from the dash back.

YOu have any input Marcos, or you think i have it covered?

If your looking for clean i took my HVAC setup out and moved it to the piece below the cigarrette lighter and im putting my three gauges in place of the HVAC system. Im goin to build a console later on as well to incorporate a subwoofer and my switches but i didnt want to run my gauges there. I also have an 02 with a stick

So is there a subwoofer in yours now? are you going to add one in this one?

Maybe a more itemized list of features would help generate ideas.

Yes my console has 2 10s in it. The only thing my new one must have is my air gauges and switches and subs or amps. I'm thinking about moving my subs to a more traditional behind seat box and mount my amps under the console. And i have cup holders that mount to the front on whatever i do.
