center console sub to non-subwoofer console?
I've got a TJ without a factory center console, but I want to install a subwoofer. Rear seat enclosures are great, but most of the time I drive without my rear seat. I tried to find a used center console to mount a sub in it, but with no luck. Now I'm trying to order a new center console, but I'm confused with their part numbers. What are the differences between the factory sub and basic consoles? Can I fit a 8" sub in a basic (w/o a subwoofer) console?

Both have the same exterior dimensions however when you open the lid what you see will be different. Inside the subwoofer console is a black tray for cds and only about the depth of a cd. In the non sub console there is a big white bucket that will fit a small backpack, netbook, or your lady's purse. Either one could be used for adding a subwoofer you may need to make changes to the sub model (cd tray) you WILL need to make changes to the non-sub model (bucket).

When I ditched my factory sub (which I had upgraded) I replaced the whole console b/c I wanted the non-sub unit for storage. Ordered from and got a nice price.

Now that we're a few model years beyond TJs you should be able to find a console on ebay...make sure to get the one for your year as they evolved over the years (cupholder section).

Thanks for the info. I don't mind cutting a few holes in a non-subwofer console since the price difference is $210 for the non-sub version vs $620 for the subwoofer version. don't do international shipping, and no consoles with international shipping on ebay currently...
I did a little research on wrangler consoles and found some part numbers. Obviously, there are more differences such as passenger airbag on/off switch, but I don't have any source of info on this subject. Funny enough, the part numbers for consoles as "Accessorities" are different from the partnumbers of "Parts".
Here are the partnumbers for "Parts":

- (agate) SJ86 1AZAA

- (agate) SJ87 1AZAA
- (tan/agate) SJ87 1K5AA

(2-piece mini consoles with 2 cupholders, two-piece full consoles)

I couldn't tell you on the parts numbers. Maybe if you called a dealership they could help you with it.

I didn't see before you needed international shipping. Try they may be willing to ship international and also try which is a security center console. Worst to worse I think and have international shipping for a may need to call their customer service to find out for sure.
