    Hey all,

    I just wanted to share a little project I did yesterday to tame the abyss that is our center consoles. I liked the look of the 3rd gen organizers and couldn't find one for a 2nd gen that filled the entire opening.

    I ordered this one from Amazon (for a 3rd gen)

    The length and width of the tray are perfect for our consoles, but obviously the shape along the front edge is different. Using a cutoff wheel on a dremel, I cut along the red lines and sanded to fit.

    The file holder brackets at the front and rear of the console need to be removed for this tray to fit, but fortunately they just pop out. The front one slides/snaps to the passenger side and the rear one toward the drivers side.

    Bonus: the stock tray that lives in our console can then be moved all the way over to the passenger side, and squished down into the bottom of the console to create a little divider. The new tray sits over the top of that and doesn't interfere as long as you remove the little sliding tray.

    From the top of the tray one little corner needed to be trimmed to fit around the console latch receiver, but it gets mostly covered up when you put the rubber tray pads in at the end.

    This is the final result:

    I spent about 30 minutes trimming and sanding to make sure it fit correctly. But I also didn't have a write up to follow, so it should go quicker for anyone else who wants to give it a shot.

    Overall I am super happy with the results. I love all the storage in the console, but my biggest gripe was the lack of quick access to things that get used every day. This tray pops out quickly when you need to get to larger items underneath, but otherwise sits perfectly in the opening.

    I hope this is helpful to anyone else looking for a solution.

    Headlights (Ebay) don't do it! Eibach front lift springs, Bilstein 5100 Struts and Shocks. Set on lowest groove. 3" in the front. Front sway bar lower kit.
    I like it, just ordered one to make one myself.

    Thanks

    Awesome!

    Wish I saw this 6 years ago when I bought my 2nd gen.
