Looking for info on swapping out my LTZ center console for a jump seat. Family is growing and need to move the oldest to the front to make room in the back for twins.
I came across a post doing the opposite swap, but nothing for going "backwards" as it seems kind of a downgrade, I suppose.
I have a 2018 with dune/cocoa leather. The console is cocoa (brown), but I'm guessing the jump seat would be dune (tan). I'd prefer leather to match, but cloth would be acceptable if only that's available for tan or brown.
Also wondering what I might have to change under the dash? I assume there would need to be a panel added to cover the hole left behind when removing the console. Perhaps a different harness to connect the new panel?
Last thought is whether or not I'll have issues with the Bose sound system. I know the amp used to be mounted under the center console in Suburbans/Tahoes. Not sure if that's the case here.
I'd be willing to consider a swap with someone looking to go the other direction.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello! New to this site and I know this is Probly old news. I swapped out the interior of my 2006 LBZ with a 2005 Escalade platinum which is much nicer than the stock LT trim package. Last week I finally picked up the complete interior wire harness from a parts Escalade that I bought and parted out, the first platinum that donated the interior, the harness had been cut. So finally the heated and cooled bucket seats, (front and back) will work. Yes buckets out back are awesome! Along with the heated and cooled cup holders! Also headrest monitors for the kids! Anyhow just thought I would share in case anyone wants to or tries the swap. Make sure to get a complete harness for the interior. The Escalade packs a big upgrade from the stock Chevy harness. It doesn’t have all the wiring and the pin outs would drive you mad!
I am looking for some insight from other people that specialize in wiring and electrical. I own a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado Ext. Cab and I have recently installed an overhead console and wired it to a 10 amp circuit in the interior fuse panel using 16ga wire. Doing it this way, the LEDS are very bright, like I want them. Now I want to switch the wiring to the existing wiring from the BCM for OE functionality when I open the door or use the dimmer switch to turn them on. The original wiring is a GRY/BLK 20ga(?) wire that runs up the pillar on the driver side. When I tapped into this wire, the dome lights work like they should, but are very dim.
What should I do about this? I have considered running the oe wiring to activate a relay and running the 16ga I have installed through the same relay for power and ground to the dome lights. That way I get the brightness I like, and it retains OE functionality. Is this the way I should go or are there other options?
