    I'd like to mount my Activator II brake controller in the "box" in the front portion of the floor console (see pic). I am planning on drilling out a 1/2" hole in the front of the box where I will feed the controller wires through. Then I will intertwine the controller wires above the pedals (gas/brake) over to the pig-tail connector which is on the left side of the drivers floor area. I have the factory towing package.

    I don't know how to remove the floor console to safely drill the 1/2" hole so I'm wondering if it will be OK to punch a 1/2" hole in the front of the box (without destroying something unnecessarily behind it)? It would be so much easier if I could see what's behind the front of the console but there isn't any fasteners that I could find holding the floor console in place.

    Please advise; thank you so much.

    Altho' his write-up was terrific it certainly doesn't outline how to get the cup holder insert out. He says to lift up on the cup holders (the black rubber inserts) and I did that and they came right out BUT the cup holder insert remains. Not sure how to get that out (without breaking something).
