Has anyone changed out their center console to a newer style? I've never been crazy about the one in my truck and just curious if one would swap in without major work. If you have, any pointers on do's and don'ts are greatly appreciated.

It's not bad without the armrests because the 08-10 consoles sit much higher so your arm will rest on the console instead the flip down armrest.

NICE!!! So it feels at the right height for your arm to lay on? I like that look and miss having a floor console. I am so tired of these center jump seats. No enough room to store stuff.

Thanks for the pictures Zmann!

I know this is a very old thread but i cant find an answer to this question. When putting in the 08-10 center console do i need to install the 2 large brackets on the bottom, into my 07 ? Or will i just be able to swap console without 08-10 brackets? i havent pulled mine out yet so just want to make sure i have everything i need. Thank you in advance!

I removed both of mine but you could probably get by with just removing the inner bolts and loosening up the outer bolts
I had years of french frys to remove anyway

Does this 08 console have a charging port? I see what appears to be one on the back of the console, and I imagine there's be one for the front also. I've been thinking about how to put a charhing port in for the rear seats.

I recessed a 5 port Anker USB charge port into mine in the front of the console facing down towards the front crap tray
