Nice detail work on painting the grey, black.
I've got the brushed silver one in my 89. Looks way better than the black one.

BAM!

i think it's 3" PVC. i used a hole saw to cut the hole. looks great and I'm very satisfied with it, its a must do for people without cupholders, somebody thought it was like that from the manufacturer at first glance, until he looked at the rough edges of the plastic.

perfect size for a vitamin water, or a large beer.

If you do a clean epoxy job, and then repaint it...it can really look stock.

I just bought a 87' Jeep Cherokee, The outside looks great, and the inside is.... old. It doesn't have a center console, no cup holders, the lights in the dash are dim and the switch to turn the lights on doesn't work great.

One awesome feature is that it is a push button start, haha the person before me was a mail carrier and needed to sit in the passanger seat to drive so there is a silver push button start on the right side of the shifter, its great. I'll post pictures eventually.

Anyway, someone please point me in the right direction to get a console, cupholders, dashboard lights, switch for the lights, and anything that would be a cheap modification to my new jeep.

Thanks in advance.

Cheap mod.... a renix rad temp sensor will fit in a chunk of coolant hose easily. Add a T on your heater core and you have a place to mount it when you convert to open cooling.

Dude that first pic has a polish beer in it if I'm not mistaken. I have a friend in Chicago that brings that stuff to me. I love it. Strong taste but damn good beer I think .

You need to find a good local brewery.
