Ok.... I guess it is time to reveal my little surprise.
I started to clean up the carpet. I mean, we vacumed it, and it looks beautiful. My mom was pissed this whole weekend. She kept doubting that we would ever be able to put everything back together correctly. If she saw us not put the carpet in, well... Let's just say the Jeep wouldn't move for a while.
So I took the console back out, and put the carpet in. It is actually surprising how good it looks. I will also note that it keeps the smell down a bit. I should be able to report later tomorrow how the road noise is. We are taking my aunt to La Guardia tomorrow night. I would assume with the carpet and liner it would be a little quieter.
Time for pics.
All is back in place (not the rear seats, but the brackets are)

Well... there you go, the surprise. You can see in the pictures how clean it is now.
