After a stint in Iraq I finally get to open my xmas presents

Got home last sunday and finally got to open my presents. One of the ones I most wanted to see was my new console from MaxBilt. Check this monster out.


This thing is built and built well. Solid all the way around. Best thing about it is the lock is damn near bullet proof. It comes completely wired with only the power and whatever 2 auxiliary items you want. (switches built in and wired)

The fuses are wired and tucked into the area where the head unit get secured.

This thing will be awesome when I gotta lock new XD45 in my jeep. Seriously, this thing is worth the money.
The guy even included a hand written note on cardboard thanking me for choosing his console. LOL Bet you wouldn't get that from any other manufacturer.
LOL here's the picture of the thank you letter

I happened to walk by one at a local shop and caught it out of the corner of my eye. <<< Instant whiplash >>> Yeah, it's a beauty!



Welcome Home Marine, and Thank You for your service to our Country.

Edit: Once you get it bolted in, let us know how you like/dislike the cupholders in front. Think they will get in the way of a manual shifter? I've wondered about how far back you'd need to go, but still allow the back seat to flip up. As a for-instance, my cheezy aftermarket console just barely misses the back seat, but if I have a cell phone in the little pocket up front, I can't hardly shift into 2nd gear (read: poor console design).

You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.


2015 YJ Of The Year

Thanks, but my rig is just a Prince among Kings. You folks gave me the answers to build it!

Sorry I have stopped by Mike.
My boy brought home the flu and decided to share it with the wife and I. OMG I feel like ****! I don't want to pass it on to you and yours, you know.
I don't know if I'm even going to work tonight.

But I'll definitely have to stop by and check this thing out before you fly back to the litter box.

Welcome home my fellow Belleau Woodsman! I've looked at the Maxbilts before and drooled, for sure let us know how it fits. You ever need anything, I'm on I&I duty with 1/24 in Lansing; our H&S Co is in Selfridge so I'm nearby, you let me know. Without violating any kind of OpSec, when you gotta go back? Been talking a bit with Brandon and was maybe gonna head over that way for a beer or 3 in the near future, first round is on me!
