Default swappin out 3rd gen center console for 4 gen. can it be done?

ok so i just got my truck last thursday (08 big horn quad cab) and its pretty basic. its got the fold down cup holders and center console folds up into a seat... i'm the type of dude that loves to hold onto change haha and i also love slots and compartments to put stuff in!!! like change, receipts, my phone, knifes, pens, ect... the only place i have is the slot in the dash under the stock radio (which i'm gonna replace with a better one so that eliminates that slot for good)...

now i love the new consoles in the 09-12 models!!! the only thing is i hate the gear shifter in the middle, but i've seen some with out it... i wanna know if i can put the new ram consoles into my 08?... or if you guys know of any other console that will look good in it...

also is it pretty easy to change one of these out my self or would i have to take it in?

Yes, a guy who goes by the name of SRTSIR on other forums. He ran into the guy he sold his 04 quad cab to and the dude had swapped in the seats and console from an 09+. Looked good.

That looks NICE!! Need to find me a wrecked 4G... Wonder how much of a hassle it was... I'd REALLY like to see if I can mod the center bezel to fit too... I like that the newer Rams can fit a double DIN with little issue...

The problem with the 3rd gen's is that the radio slot has those half moon cut outs where the volume and tune nobs are. The kit that I had it just had the plastic that filled the cut outs, and it looks ok, but I would have like it if I could have gotten rid of those cut outs.

They have regular rectangle double DIN ones from the factory, you just need to find one and swap it. For example:

Does anyone know if the higher end models (like the bighorn or laramie) have the second compartment under the center seat on the 4th gens, like they had in the 3rd gens? I'd love to have that center console in my SLT 4th gen. My brother's big horn 3rd gen has it...

I also thought about that mod....really looks cool!.

one issue, around here ....good luck finding a wrecked ram or parts....and IF you could find them....then you would pay an arm and a leg for them lol.

Id love to swap in leather interior and center console from a 4th gen into my 3rd gen.
