Bench Seat to Center Console Swap


Recommended Posts

Wanted to give a shout out to @pgamboa for a great experience, apologies if this is in the wrong place (I don’t post much). 

 

Was planning on parting out a console from GMpartsdirect for this swap, and then using Phil’s harness to tie everything together.  Had my parts list in the shopping cart and reached out to Phil to order the harness.  Turns out Phil now has the ability to have a complete, preassembled console from GM shipped directly to my door w/ his harness for about $300 less than what it would cost to do it all part by part.  He offered different console colors, side trim, latch styles, and the option to upgrade to a wireless charging lid.  

 

Based on the reviews here, I sent him a PayPal and had everything I needed within a week.  Now I have a fully operational console for 3/4 of what I would have paid to piece everything together separately. 

 

I would highly recommend Phil’s service to anyone looking to do this mod ??

 

On an unrelated note, I have a beautiful bench seat sitting in my garage right now...

Can you give an idea on how much it is out the door to do this swap? Is the bench seat worth anything when you're done with the swap?

$975 total.

$750 - Console
$75 - USB Cables
$150 - Conversion Harness

Jumps seat - if leather, maybe $300-$350 (but shipping will be crazy so aim for local pickup). Cloth, maybe $250-$300

Phil, you're killing me here. So you're saying for under $1,000 you can get an OEM center console in these things? Is that a new center console? shipping?

I believe that his quote was for shipped prices. And yes, he gets them new from his supplier! I think he posted that in his thread that he made :)

Yes. That’s correct. 2018, Brand New Consoles, with the latest wireless charging lid.

 

I haven’t made a public announcement or posting on this yet as I am still recovering from the backlog that was created during the Holidays.

 

The pricing might be increasing a little so that insurance can be added to the shipment. Had a small handful of consoles that arrived damaged.

 

Here are some pics.

Are you still doing these? If so, I need to get a quote from you!

      More specifically, Climate Control System backlighting.
      The backlighting is burned out for the lower right Air Delivery Mode Control button for my Climate Control System. Does anyone know how to replace the bulb behind this panel?

      Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE with the 3” front 2” rear MOTOFAB leveling kit. Currently have stock wheels/tires on it which are 255/70R17. Thinking about jumping up to 18” wheels instead but wanted to know how much of a difference the 17” to 18” jump would make in appearance. 
       
      I was able to find plenty of pictures with 18” wheels but are there any photos out there of leveled /lifted trucks with 17” rims?

      HELP! I just purchased a very nice 2018 K 1500 Sierra SLT (premium Plus trim). Problem is it had/ has flood damage. So far the only think that does not work is the power seats. Other than that the truck is clean and operational. I purchased the seat frame with all three motors from GMC and am ready to get to it. But... driver's seat is stuck low, full back and full reclined. No way to get to the two T50 hold down bolts in the back. I jumped 12VDC to the seat bottom tilt and height motors. The tilt motor works (it sits above the water line) but the height motor is dead. It sits lower (below water line) and is obviously corroded. I can not get to the fwd-aft motor or plug, but can see it shows signs if corrosion.  Any clever thoughts on how to get the seat out? 
      Thanks, Jim

      Who else is ready for the GMC "I Love it" Holiday commercial to go away? I own a 2018 Sierra SLT CC. I originally found the commercial amusing and lmao when my wife mimicked the girl one day in a parking lot but after seeing it run over and over all month, I think it is permanently implanted in my subconsciousness! ??
