Looking for custom center console

I would like to remove my center console and make one that goes up to the dash. I would like to add some electronics and switches and want to put them in it. Has anyone done this before? Are there pics out there or designs? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

There was a couple people on here that made some out of plywood, and I think one that put the 2011 style center console in his truck.

Thanks. I was hoping to be able to add one rather then build one. I was wondering about the expedition console. I saw one from a 02 but it looked a little skinny. I will check out the newer ones and the F150 to see the size.

Here is my new center console I have finished for the most part.

Waiting for some vinyl to show up and also with be adding some cup harders and a cubby hole in the box.

This is a fiberbox enclosure with MDF supports.

Enjoy.

Very different. It looks nice, I am just too used to using the center console as an arm rest. How does it sound?

It sounds pretty good. Just got to put a "gasket" around the sub now were it screws down in the box.

Now see, I said the same thing, I use my console as an arm rest.

Well there is an add-on I'm putting to the box that will still act as that.

Ill show you a picture of where I got the idea from!





As you can see, this box was very nicely built. On my box, ill be using the same concept as in the above image for that arm rest, will have the padding on the top and will cover both subs. (Also helps for a little more security!)

Anything can be done with fiberglass and wood

Let me know if you are interested in doing something like this and I can share some tips with you on how I built it!

Man that actually looks really nice!!! Are you going to cover yours like the one in that pic with vinal/leather or leave it the red color? As of now I am just running a truck box behind the rear seat but I really like the new style kind of like how you did yours that runs the console up to the dash

I will be wrapping mine with the vinyl/leather

When I put the Bondo filler on the box it still left little tiny pin holes on it and was unable to sand it out. So It will be wrapped. But ill be wrapping in with red vinyl to match he truck!

See with the subs I have as a choice they were to big for behind the seat, or even under the seat. SO my only other option was to build a new center console!

I built one out of MDF wood but did not like it that much. Wanted more custom so I built this one out of fiber glass.
