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.
