    I saw this pic of a 2004 Land Cruiser with a satellite radio. My question is, what goes there normally? Is that a custom part?

    Yeah, the more I look at it, it looks like a custom job. Pretty cool. :cool:

    I have a Sirius receiver currently attached to the windshield resting on the dash... I never thought about putting it up there! Does anyone know how the antenna wire and power cord are run? Kinda a tricky place for all that.

    HRC, it does not seem difficult to me. Just run the wires in the headliner and bring the power/audio out signal down one of the pillars. You might try following the powerline for your auto dim mirror, if so equipped. Use caution if you have side curtain airbags.

    I like this idea, too.

    In looking at the photo again, am I seeing it correctly that the factory garage door holder (the part that moves) has been replaced by the piece that holds the radio faceplace (that now doesn't move)? If so, I wonder where you could buy the new piece.

    My XM faceplace is mounted down low underneath the ashtray, and although it's ok for the driver, the passenger has a little trouble seeing it and pushing the buttons.

    Here's a picture of the unmodified console. This is from a 2004 model--not sure when the changed the layout, maybe 2003.

    Plus you can see the sunroof control right between the two map lights. ;)

    That custom console may be from a place called Department of the Interior (http://www.consoles.com) in Australia. They make very nice stuff at what I would say are very fair prices - I had one of their dashboard pods in my 1995 Land Rover Discovery. Shipping to the United States wasn't too bad, but I got it back in 1998.
