Just got done switching the front row jump seat to a console with rear air (awesome thread here BTW), installed upper glove box with light, upgraded steering wheel controls for radio volume and channel switching, Katzkin front seats and tuffy security front and back. Love this truck, have wanted a Ram for years because of the styling. So glad I got one before they redesigned the body. Love this site!

Nice. How hard was that swap? Mine came with the katskins when I bought it but would love the console over the jump seat. Where did you find it?

Thanks! Ha Ha, I’ve spent my allowance for the year. Waiting on a Hammerhead-X front bumper to get here then I’m done till next year but I appreciate the suggestion. Is there a good thread for the upgrade to the 8.4?

Ohio, sort of a long story but I bought the console from a 2015 1500 Laramie used on eBay and it arrived broken. Guy gave me a partial refund and I salvaged as much as I could. Bought some new parts online from Mopar. Only thing I had to do was modify the opening for the media center upper console to accept the 2018 media center inputs. Took me, a weekend when I had everything done. Doing the leg work tracking down all the parts is the hardest thing really. Here’s a picture of how I modified the media center inputs.

That looks amazing. I have the stupid jump seat and now I want to throw it out even more for the console. Guess early christmas present for me.

Looks good! If I never used my jump seat I'd be into this, but going boating I often have 6 people in the truck on the way.
