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 jparts.com 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).

gily25,
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. jparts.com 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":

1997-1998
(One-piece mini consoles with one cupholder, one-piece full consoles w/2 cupholders)

- (agate) 5DT85 TAZ

- (saddle) 5FW35 RT6AA

1999-2000

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 www.jeepsareus.com they may be willing to ship international and also try www.tuffyproducts.com which is a security center console. Worst to worse I think www.quadratec.com and www.4wd.com have international shipping for a fee...you may need to call their customer service to find out for sure.
