I got tired of having no cup holders in my XL with the nifty bench seat. So I did something about it. Here's what it looks like after 2 days of work. The cup holders are giant, A soda can with a thick coozy is still loose. I am happy with how it turned out. Lemme know whatcha think. :beer

It follows the transmission cover perfectly so I thought a little straight bracket on each side would work good. I just mounted my maglite brackets on the drivers side of the console. But as it turns out there is a 4wd shifter there. :doh0715:

It looks furry. How did you mount it to the tailgate?? It gonna be tough to reach the drinks with it back there you know. :rofl:

Get some pics if it mounted where its supposed to go then lets talk about how it looks!!! (I feel your pain with the XL though, thats what I have and mine had no cupholders either. I put in bench seats and a crappy walmart console for now and am going to build a custom one sometime in the next 14 years).

Its just regular automotive carpet. The pictures make it look really poofy though lol.

Here's my "custom maglite mount" 50 cents at home depot and with a little bend they hold it perfectly.










I didn't take in account the 4wd shifter... :duh

No offense, but that looks like a 9th grade shop project to me..........
Thanks, It was something that was built out of necessity until I get bucket seats and can build a larger console.

Looks nice, Are the cup holders big enough to hold a 64 ounce soda?
I wouldn't doubt it! I think there about 4".

For somebody who doesn't have carpentry experience I think it turned out good, it gets the job done.
