You may wanna just pick that up and re-do it if it is needed.

I think after doing my engine I'm going to build my custom center console and depending on how hard they turn out I may start building them and selling them on here.

Well guys after much pondering I think it's going to have to happen. I'm going to start making custom center consoles for rangers and selling them on here. In an attempt to fund my truck fund because I need to buy a new Harley after watching youtube videos and sons of anarchy for a while... In all seriousness if anyone would be interested in buying one I will mod one up for my truck so you can see how it looks/acts. You could tell me what you're expecting out of it and how much room I have to play with. I can pretty much integrate anything* I'll make a list.

PLEASE READ ALL SUB-TEXT

Shortys
USB ports, toggle switches, tablets, gauges, speakers, a sub, laptops, charging ports**(like a house hold plug in for flashlights, tazers, neck massaging devices, hand held consoles, tools, etc.), gun retainers, head units, CUSTOM SIZED CUP HOLDERS! Pretty much anything you can think of I could get in there one way or another.

full or sweep style***
With the long or sweep styles I am able to integrate more into your console. It will allow you to either sweep it to look like a L going behind the passengers, or drivers seats. Or allow you to do a full and set it like a T going behind both seats. with the upgraded size you're able to add stuff like:

In truck tool box, much more audio equipment(with a full I can fit your amp 2, 15"s in center console ipad, gauges, toggle switches, and around 3 speakers giving you a full sound set up) video equipment such as small flat screens or tablets throughout the fulls, a dog kennel, storage compartments, gun racks, bigger drop boxes, a mini fridge. Really you can go fucking bonkers back there man!

Now let's talk about trim packages. I'm breaking it down to 3 packages we all can understand and know. For plane jane vinyl it will not have a trim package so it will be just a shorty or a full. For OEM matching color carpet it will be an XLT. For a real wood grain like they have in Bentleys it will be a tuscany package. Support for them increases in each package as does weight just remember that if you order a full it will be a 2 man install or you'll risk cracking a sweep off.

Depending on what you're going to want as equipment I am going to have to change my materials and there for change the cost. Any LED mods will have to be outsourced(to bugmann if he is up to it soon) and any custom graphics will be outsourced to Glenn(don't even tell me you're mad). These are not going to be cheap center consoles and will be a lot better than anything you can throw in from an exploder. So lets get down to price.

All prices increase with added comforts these prices are for a base models and don't come with any electronics.

shorty $150+shipping
shorty xlt $200+shipping
shorty tuscany $300+shipping

sweep $200+shipping
sweep xlt $260+shipping
sweep tuscany $325+shipping

full $250+shipping
full xlt $300+shipping
full tuscany $450+shipping

For anyone wondering about experience I have been doing auto body professionally for about a year and un-professionally for about 4. I have built consoles before for my buddies Lumina and that had 1 8" sub enclosed in it. As far as the wood work goes I worked with a company called Kindboards based out of Brainerd. They make custom longboards all built from hand. PM me with any questions.

*I do not install any electrical devices or provide them unless they can no be accessed by means other than dissembling parts of the center console.

**for a real house plug in you'll need to run an inverters which are running around $120 for a good 1000 watt.

***Both the sweep and the full are going to disable use of the jump seats, as well as how far back your seat goes if you do not measure it at its farthest back point. I can make one arm go farther back/forward than the other one if you want a true snug to seat fit.

Feedback is appreciated as I am really trying to start my own business in custom body work and would like to start this stuff in Minnesota. I'll cut deals to all from this thread unless you live in Iowa... Then all prices go up 10%

Don't hate on him. I'm sure your parents let you use their things when you were younger, and you considered them to be yours too. No need to get pissed about it...and who knows! He could have bought them! I know plenty of younger kids who make a lot of money. I have a friend that's 20 who makes $100,000 a year
