I have the full console in our LJ and the just the subwoofer console in the TJ. They are rock solid and its nice to have the cushion on the armrest. Install is easy and straight forward with minor drilling. They'll be out there a while trying to get it open.
The full console with shifter etc is metal, make sure you prefer the look to the plastic. It has a single spot for change if you don't have the air bag shutoff. It does allow you to change the color of our console though
If you don't have the sub and have no plans for one, buy the non sub woofer version and get more space. If you like your small cup holders, keep the front half and just get the back. Tuffy 055-01 - Tuffy Rear-Half Speaker Console for 01-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
