    I am about to rip out hat half-azz center console and either make one (out of spare parts from other trucks) or maybe buy one. I need:
    1. more storage
    2. bigger arm rest (wide one like the Dodge Ram 1500's :G)
    3. MORE..MUCH More cupholders!

    The only problem i see is the emergency brake. &nbsp:Does anyone think it is possible to relocate the brake somewhere else to open up that space?

    also..anyone put/use/make a HUGE center console that works and looks good? If there is a good aftermarket one..i would be interested. otherwise..it is off to the drawing board!

    I would leave the brake there...
    Look into the Tuffy line, maybe something will shoe horn inn. Although there are some pretty wicked humps under the console .

    Yeah,..
    moving the brake will be a pain in the arce. Still, i need something bigger and more comfortable to lean on.

    See the thread on radio installs for a pic of mine.

    I made the one on the 40 to hold the radio, CB, the wiring distribution center and a bank of switches. Really the hardest part was going in to Jo-Ann fabrics to get the vinyl. All those blue hairs and Martha Stewart types. :ugh:

    Pep Boys. It's just a junky plastic one that's supposed to sit on a bench seat. i just mounted the hinge and latch from the stocker on there. It works really good though.

    I'll see your randomly placed Cruiser Dawg and raise you one.
