'08 Console Swap?

Hey all,

My armrests suck. They come to about 1/2" BEHIND where I'd like to rest my arm and could be an inch wider. Anyways, I stumbled upon the 2008 console swap mod threads.

I have an '01 with captains chairs and was wondering what exactly I need to do the swap? Am I going to need the brackets? (I assume so) and then, is it going to mount to the stock console mounts?

Also, is the dang thing comfortable? Does it take the place of, or come to the same level as my current arm rests?

Thanks all!

I could be wrong but i have heard that it wont work with your armrests..New console is taller and wider,wont fit between your armrest..

That's fine b/c like I said, the stock armrests suck. Especially for long trips where I'd like to be able to rest my arm on the console and touch the wheel.

But I still wonder how comfortable it is, or is it just a 'bling' upgrade? What all do I need to mount it?

Thanks.
