Center console?!!!

I just bought a '98 TJ se and there is no center console or sound bar. Did these not come stock? Or... Did a idiot take them out?

no, the "SE" is the bottom of the line model. it wasn't included unless you had the convenience package.

I think the SE came with the 2.5. kinda underrated engine if you plan on modding it with bigger tires and running it in mud.

I do plan on putting 31's on it. Then a lift and try some 33 or 35's. I'm not big on mud. More of a trail person hills, rocks, ect. I do love to play in the mud but I don't like to get to deep.

Center console?

What type of center console do you mean? The tall one, armrest like,



or the little short one that has a single drink holder?



I bought the armrest like one on eBay for $120, I still have the little short one in the garage (if anyone wants one).

It should. I am not a mechanic by any means, and I was able to put it in with no instructions, just figuring it out as I went along. I never use the center for storage, but its great to have something to lean on when driving, and I really needed the extra cup holder for guests! LOL

Those guys are expensive. I just saw one today on eBay for $200 for a stock one.

A tan one just closed on eBay for $110, but I see a black one over $200. Black must be more popular.

Don't feel bad man.
Just like most vehicles, the TJ's offered more than one package.
That's normal.
I have a 98 Sahara.
It has the center console, sound bar, added exterior trim, and wider painted fender flares.
Rubicons came with lockers I think.

You might want to do some research on here before putting on a lift and 35's though.
You'll probably lose alot of power being that it's a 4 cylinder.
Also check to see if you have a Dana 35 or Dana 44.

Who would pay $400 for a crappy stock console? Get a Tuffy!

However, if someone does want a stock console for whatever strange reason, I have a charcoal one that I'd love to get rid of.

you aint missing much not having the sound bar. anybody that knows anything about "sound" knows that the soundbar, speakers are a joke.

I would jump on that offer of an original one, OP. Charcoal is a good color!

I would love to have the console! How much do you want for it? And where are you located?

It won't have a key or any hardware with it, but the hardware is just a few nuts and bolts you could get anywhere.

I really have a difficult time believing anyone pays $400 for these when you could get a Tuffy, which is far nicer, for around that.

Then again, here is a used one on ebay similar to the one I have, that is up to $202 with 10 bids.

I'd take $75 plus shipping if necessary. I'm in western NY. If you're interested or want pics of it, send me a PM with your email address.
