Custom center console build

Backstory: I've had my sub box that I built to fit my old Dakota sitting in the back seat (in folded down position) for about a year now. I really want to be able to use the back seats for my dogs, but I still want bass. I also need more cup holders (who doesn't in these trucks). I want to be able to still fold the back seat down when need be for tools. This rules out a under seat box (which is harder on a 99 anyways) and also rules out a box between the jump seat and back seat.


Just starting thins thread to document my custom center console I will be making. Plans are to remover the jump seat and create a floor console that will utilize the console lid of the jump seat, and mounting brackets. I will have a single 10" sub, and amp. Going to also incorporate my brake controller, cb, move my switches from the dash to the console, and have a few cigarette lighter outlets. Room providing, I will also have an inverter. During this process I will also be adding my pillar gauges (the typical three)

I will also add some switches for heated seats, which I'll also show here. I did something similar for a buddy's car, so I know what I will do already for the seats.


Trying to Keep it under $200 bucks, so we'll see what I come up with.

Probably going to felt or paint it, as I don't have to money to upholster it.

Nothing to show as of right now, still collecting the pieces.

Here's what I am starting with, and a shot of all the goodies that were under the seat.

See that is the opposite of what I want to accomplish. I don't want the sub or amp to be visible, and I want to utilize the space between where the jump seat and dash are. My truck is a work truck first and foremost, and so utilitarianism is important. That said, I do want it to look nice too...

I know this might be of topic because you want subs in your console but here is what I did in my 1999 f250 superduty for a center console.Its from a ford expedition.

That looks really good actually.

Which year did you grab that from? I've seen excursions but with the typical 99-03 Center Console.

Thanks

That's a skinny lid one so prob a 97-99 I believe. The 99-02 had a fat top console lid which made a better arm rest an more space inside the console. Idid the same thing in my 97 f150 I had before this truck. In the 150s all you had to do was get the bracket for the console and tap two holes that were there from the factory. I would like to do it in mine now but I don't want to lose my driver side glove box/compartment. Looks like in the pics that his wont open
