I have an '07 lariat crew cab with some sort of overhead console. It has a flip down sunglasses holder, which I do use. It also has this empty cubby just behind the sunglasses holder. Anyone know if it's for anything specifically? Have you guys mounted anything in it? CB radio? DVD player? Just left it empty? Let me know what you did with it.

Its for a garage door opener. There should be a velcro patch on the door where you mount your opener and then there is a little rubber bumper thing that mounts on the topside you can cut it to lenght to line it up with the button on your opener. Then all you do is give the door a little push and it activates your garage door opener.

What?? It's literally an open cubby. There isn't anything in it at all. There is no door on it.

all i know is my 03 goes...... trip, mileage, direction readout (that needs to be repaired lol) then sunglasses cubby, then the last cubby has a door with a velcro patch to attach your garage door opener and yes it does have a rubber piece on the door like someone said on the first page of this post that hits your garage door opener button when you push on the factory Ford door.... gasp, there are different variations of this so .........:worthless[1]::worthless[1]::worthless[1]:

Never got to use this before so i had to do it x3 LOL

Lol well if I was near my truck I'd already have a pic up. Unfortunately I've been about 450 km away from my truck for a while and will be for another 4 days lol

Overhead Storage Bin

Overhead Storage Bin Extention

OK. Here is what my over head looks like stock. I'd like to find an off the shelf extension to the overhead bin (pic 1). Sooner or later, I'm going to want to put a row of switches up there to control a few different things. Anyone seen anything or made anything?

That is EXACTLY what mine looks like too. I really like the idea of stuffing a nice little CB radio in that cubby lol.
