Default What do you use as a cup holder??

Hi,

I've got an 88 ranger extended cab and I need to pick up something to hold my drinks. There is a bit of room behind the gear shift and I'm curious what you have found thats works. I've got the 60/40 front seats.

Thanks, without our coffee in the Am we in Washington are pretty cranky.

with my '90 5sp w/bench. i went to walmart and got a cheap catchall with 2 cupholders. cut the catchall off and screwed the cupholders to the floor in between the shifter and seat. worked perfect!

Ours has the cupholders on the floor under the dash but you have to lean forward while driving to reach 'em. So I found a couple cheapass 99-cent cupholders at Walwart and stuck 'em under the lid (see pic) of the fold-up armrest compartment.

Of course if you don't have the armrest thingie this won't be much help.

The only thing fitting in my cupholders would be a 7 eleven super gulp....those bastards wont hold anything else. I will probably be going to Walmart this weekend to make some changes.
