    not a replacement, but you cut a hole, to fit 6 switches.

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    I was planning to cut the hole out for the 6 panel. But having more space behind the switches for the wiring and connections is always a plus.

    I use that space to store things when on the road. So the space in front of the cup holders wouldn't work for me.

    20160913_204152.jpgI did this with masking tape and a little hand held electric cut off wheel. Just keep your wiring tight on the back of the switch's. I shold have used flag terminals insted of straight push ons.

    I'm sure you've seen the Australian options for inspiration and many of them have a small net on the side which if you place your radio correctly can act as a nice little storage spot for radio mic and their cables when not in use.

    that is true! I actually use the sunglass holder, but I would put them somewhere else, if my CB was up there..

    I've almost never used them. I always put them on the visor until I got prescription glasses then I got transitions so I never have to swap glasses according to the lighting situation

    I agree. They need a spot to go. Last resort Wet Okole seat covers have an option for glasses pouch on the side.

    It's gotta be particularly bright for me to need them anyway. I have a layer of 30% with a 5% top strip. It was money well spent

    Check out the build
    Something like this but maybe not as radio aggressive would be nice. If it's shorter you could also accommodate Access cabs. ARB sells one for the FJ's that I've always wanted for my truck that looks like this.

    I think most folks want space for a radio and switches, but adding some overhead lighting and storage would be great too.

    That's what she said.

    Have you thought about making a mount for gauges? Obviously a more limited market, but that would be a sweet alternative for those that don't want to use an a pillar mount or the steering wheel mount. Obviously would have to run more wiring, but up and out of the way would be nice.

    Someone on here fit that console into a Tacoma. I'll see if I can find it. It needed some trimming to fit the contour of the Tacoma headliner, but turned out pretty good, wonder if you could cut the factory and this to blend the two together.
