Center console w/floor shifter
 
I got the center console. Has anyone done this? I want to relocate the column shifter to the console. Any ideas?

I have done this in my RC Express ...Its pretty easy if you have all the parts and mounting parts . So make sure you get all these parts in order to make it work 100 percent right . When you install the console you have to take out the drivers seat and some of the passanger to slided out the middle seat .Make sure you have the 2 mounting brackets , One goes in the back where your old 3rd seat use to mount and bolts to the floor and one goes behide the cup holders you remove to put in the console and bolts to the bottom of the dash . The plug for the 12v outlets plugs in under the drivers seat . It only fits in one plug and it works with out the need of a dealer .Make sure you have the console radio bezel as it is longer . You need wiring harness 68024883AC SHIFTER JUMPER WIRING to move the wiring in the column to the console ,It just makes your column wires longer to plug into the shifter in the console .

52109706AC LEVER MANUAL CONTROL
52104371AG BRACKET SHIFT CABLE
52855956AG GEARSHIFT CONTROL CABLE

And this is the column cover part number

STEERINGCOLUMN W/console shift, Gray 1GE44XDVAB

All this with a used console and console radio bezel are need to swap it in a truck with out a console .
This is my swap i did m Only way you can tell its not stock is i have a base cluster ....

If you run into anything let me know . I have done 2 swaps so far and you just need the right stuff and it works all like oem . I have had mine in for 7,000 miles and 0 issues .

The one in the pick I got from billet technologys as i was looking for a shifter ball . I like the Mopar T handle alot and am thinking of switching my self . If you look up challangers they have alot of nice shifters that fit ...
