It's a thule set up, at first I ran 400xt towers with 56 fit kit, (clip on towers no drill) now I switched to a drill mount track system that comes on and off a little easier and gives me grounding for my antennas

There's lots more detail in my build thread if you take a look there.

Here's a pic of the old and new setups.

I like the idea of the full length console but too much work.

Also,like the orange radio bezel and door handle parts... Nice !

it's actually not that much work to put one in, it's only hard if you did what i did and mixed generations of interiors out of different vehicles

heres finished project. and im beyond excited that i got to put my cb in the console in front of my shifter. the only reason i didnt like having a standard was because of the cb placement. i even got to put my light switches right next to my shifter.
