Now that I have my freedom panels removed for the majority of the time, I notice my center console gets very hot when I'm parked outside. It's black, so I'm also worried about it getting sun-faded.

Anyone know of any good options to cover the center console in the 2011-13 interior? Not really looking for a pad, just protection from the sun so I can stop burning my arm.

I have the same Rugged Ridge one and love it. No problem with it coming off either. It holds up great with a 75lb Weimaraner standing on it all the time. The only thing is that it has faded out quite a bit in the 7 months that I've had it but better it than my center console.

Thanks!

Does this get as hot when it's sitting out in the sun?
It's still black, but I assume it wouldn't soak up as much heat as the bare console?

Obviously anything black will be hot after sitting in the sun, but it won't sear your elbow to well done if you put it up there. :D

Definitely worth it.

I never had a problem with it getting too hot. Of course, I've since added a spiderweb shade so the point is fairly moot now.
