Installed three cup holders in the back of my Crew Cab
Yeah, there's four up front and two in the back seat armrest (Lariat) from the factory. BUT if you're like me and have three kids, a wife a dog or any other combo of 5+ passengers that doesn't work worth a crapola! On a long trip like I'm fixen' to take from MI to AL to GA to Fl and back to MI with three kids and the wife, some dagum cup holders come in handy back yonder!
I bought these from Autozone for like $1.49ea. I trimmed two of them down, sanded the tops so they're purrty. Then I used 3M double side tape to attach them the flatest parts of the fake wood for the two doors. I put three strips of the 1/2" tape down the back sides...
On the middle one, I cut the extra crapola off at the top and slipped it in next to a hinge. Then I bent the mount down inside of the console and screwed it down. I had to trim the little hooky things on the back of the strap so the cover would open all the way without it rubben' real bad. I also put DS tape on the back of it to hold it in place, keep it from flopping around.
Sorry I forgot to take a pic of the inside of the console but you'll get the drift, I think.
Make sure you clean the heck out of everything with Rubben' alchy and use your womans hair drier to make it stick good.
