FINISHED! My DIY Triple Radio Overhead Console with GPS
 
In my old TJ I had a 2 space tuffy overhead console. But due to the lack of a dual overhead console for the jk, I decided to create my own, but with three spots. It's made out of 3/4" black starboard that was CNC routed and also used black acrylic laser cut for the radio bezels and cover plates. Right now is a Cobra 29 LX and a Scanner. The open spot right above the rear view mirror is going to be for a VHF/UHF Radio that is coming soon. I still had enough room for a ext speaker or even two more radios or whatever else i can come up with. Plus these radios are all wired in the pics... The wires hide nicely! Come out nice...

UPDATE!

All finished!! Finished it with a external CB speaker, Custom buttons for garage door and other accessories, a Yaesu 8800 UHF/VHF Radio and a Magellan 1700 ripped apart and custom fit into the console. All looks like it came from factory I think!

Very nice work!! I am a radio geek myself and really drooling over your creation!

Very nice work!!....do you think something like this would work with a soft top? Specifically, is there enough clearance that the top wouldn't rub?

rolandthegypsy 08-04-2012 09:41 AM

wires?
 
Hi, may you please show us the wire-ing. Where did you pass all the wires for power, antennas and any other pertinent wire.

That came out nice, I really like it.:thumbsup: Is it water tight from above for the topples too?
:cheers2:

That is seriously awesome. How does it fit under the top(s)?

EdsJunk 08-04-2012 06:37 PM

Here is the wiring and how it fits with the soft top down

Super nice work. One question. Isn't that yellow bracket for the hard top latch? Can you still access it with the console in place?

EdsJunk 08-05-2012 08:42 AM

I dont have a hard top or ever plan on having one. I never use that bracket

rirrgang 08-05-2012 08:49 AM

As I thought. You did a great job on the machining. I'm a GM at a large CNC shop in the SF bay area. If you are ever looking for a job give me a ring.
Cheers

Is this a button panel? If yes, custom made or purchased?

I signed up to the forum just to ask this question, sorry to resurrect an few months old post :P

EdsJunk 11-27-2012 08:54 AM

Yes it's a button panel and I custom made it. The whole whole overhead console is custom made

wiltron 11-27-2012 09:15 AM
