What a disappointment

3 months ago I went in and ordered a 2013 XL 6.7. I like a plain interior but decided to upgrade the seats to the captains with "console".

Well, it came in yesturday and, as beautiful as everything else is and is exactly how I wanted it, That seat upgrade is the biggest disappointment ive ever seen!! They neglected to tell me its a "mini" console. Which basically means they bolted 2 cup holders to the floor with a coin tray. You actually have to bend over to put a coffee into it because its literally on the floor...

Unsure of what to do now.. Can/will a xlt or Lariet console easily be swapped in?

Someone give me some good news PLEASE!!

Thanks,
Todd

Can you throw up a picture of the front seats of the truck? If you have captains chairs, I'm sure the larger console will fit right in!

I would be talking with your dealer about that issue before you spend more of your own money, but i would think that the other console would bolt right up. The only thing you might run into is if you have a manual t-case for 4x4. I couldn't get the cup holders that fold down from the dash because of my manual t-case. Or maybe the center console doesn't even go that far forward, i can't remember what they look like.
