Jeep Console

Can someone who has an original console measure the height for me? I bought an aftermarket one recently and it seems wicked short for my YJ. Thanks!

Yea I see that. Aside from the original shifter knob, I thought I was looking at mine...I didn't think there were to many jeeps that color out there.

I bought a rampage one I believe. It's a nice console but I was looking for one that I could use as an arm rest as well.

I put a Smittybilt in and really like it. The arm pad is at the perfect height too!
Here a few pics...

Thats the standard height for a stock console....its meant to be a center console, not an arm rest.

Oh I know it's not supposed to be one but I'd like to have one...also, the other problem is that the front lid gets caught on the seat belt buckles and I can't open it easily.

I figured out the problem...most consoles come with a bracket for the height but since I bought mine second hand, it didn't have it.

If someone could measure how wide the original console is that would be great

I was looking to get an aftermarket one but most are too tall and will hit the seats I have so I'm hoping the stock one will slide under the lip of the seats haha
