I'm going to use 16ga aluminum with mine. And make some sort of structural support. Then going to get a textured bed liner to cover it in.

Yeah I liked the way he did it. I think what I'm going to do is make one out of wood,because it is cheaper, do a Vic gauge pod, a small cb just behind the shifter facing up then a switch panel after that. Ill have it all vinyl wrapped before it goes in. And I might do a ammo can storage part/armrest.

I found that console on eBay. It's a universal fit console made by Lund industries. It's like what is in police cars. I made the mount out of the ebrake bracket with various flat and square tube to get it above everything that is under it

Take care,
Bust out the fiberglass and resin buddy. Ive never heard of anything that was close to a direct fit, itd be a fun project.

I HATE THAT OOWWWHHAA SOUND IT MAKES WHEN YOU LEAN ON THE STOCK ONES!

And how many times have you had to yell at someone for using the rear cup holders? They fail every. mother. ****ing. time.
