Rear console noises

I got the rear captains with the center console(not a bench seat) and I'v got this annoying squeak coming from the center console I think. Has anybody ever heard of this or know how to fix it?

Dont know what your noise might be but I can suggest a fix...simply remove those captains chairs (and the offending console) and replace with the bench seat...problem solved. Now if your wondering where on earth you would find such a seat, I just happen to have one and would consider a swap.

Just kidding...although I would love to have the captains chairs in my truck.

Hope you find the solution, I know how annoying unexplained noises can be.

Haha yeah theyre unique. I thought of taking out the console and putting it back with some kind of rubber between the bolts and floor but was hoping someone else had this problem and had a better idea

I see you have a 2011 truck as well. You want to install the same nav (with Sync) that your 2011 has in your 2008? I did this in my 2008 KR...love the nav and the Sync.

It can get fairly expensive...the nav units themselves run $1000+ and there are other parts required as well.

Here is the thread I did explaining the process. Adding Sync to 09 Nav in an 08 truck
It is kind of long but the important part is on page 8 I believe.

Then if you tow with your truck and want to check out a really cool camera setup here is a thread with a link to a video I did showing the custom backup camera system I did in my truck. My custom backup camera setup

The odyssey to get the newer nav with Sync working completely was a several month project. All told it probably cost me several thousand dollars. However much of that was spent on things I later realized I didnít need or on things I ruined while trying to figuring out how to make it work. The actual cost of just the parts I eventually installed is lost in that figure somewhere. I think I tried, when doing the thread, to summarize my costs but I donít know how accurate that really was.

The camera system was not nearly so much money but probably took as long to work out all the kinks.

That said I have recouped my money by designing and creating a nearly plug-n-ply kit for doing both mods. I have sold several of these kits (many to guys on this forum) in the past year or so. In fact, I have even patented the camera system and am now hoping to sell (or license) the patent.
