Overhead Console

 

PLEASE NOTE: If you install this Gear Console, folding down the windshield will become impossible without removing the console completely (because the front of the bracket is bolted to the windshield frame). Folding down the windshield, therefore, will be (on a scale of 1 to 10) a pain in the Tuchus of the 11th magnitude. I don't know of anyone who drives his Jeep with the windshield down; I suspect Chrysler keeps the option for nostalgic purposes.

 

Jeep Wranglers are fun to drive; they are nimble, good-looking, can go practically anywhere, are damn-near indestructible (as long as you take reasonable care of them), and get "Jeep Waves" from other Wrangler owners. You are never without a friend on the road when you drive a Jeep Wrangler, and you can find parts for a Jeep even if you live in Bumfuk, Idaho.

 

All the good things aside, Wranglers have precious little cargo space if you have a lot of stuff especially small stuff that tends to get bounced around and (usually) ends up under the little tire jack hole which is under the passenger seat. Major pain in the Tuchus.

 

Well, the late George Carlin used to say "You gotta' have a place to put your stuff". Well, the Smittybilt Overhead Console solves the problem with multiple pouches that you can arrange as you see fit. The console is built like the proverbial brick outhouse, using a heavy-gauge powder-coated steel frame, and heavy-duty UV-protected canvas material. The heavy steel console bracket spans the distance from above the rear-view mirror to the Roll Bar
. If a tree fell over the passenger compartment, the bracket on this thing would serve as a lateral Roll Bar
, and keep your brain-pan from being crushed.

 

If you install this console, you might also want to add a Radio Crossbar while you're at it; This will enable you to mount lights, radios, cameras, and do all sorts of neat stuff.

 

The heavy metal bracket secures to the windshield bracket with the already present (4) screws that hold the sun visor clips. I replaced the sun visor clip screws with -inch long #10 self-tapping Stainless Steel screws, and added two more screws (by drilling through the bracket) just to make sure it is as secure as if it were welded. To the rear, the bracket fits over the Roll Bar
with a curved part of the frame, and is secured in place with large hose clamps that are covered with matching fabric. No need to drill holes; this bracket isn't going anywhere.

When you have a lot of "stuff" floating around in your Jeep, the best thing to have is a place to put it where you can find it. The Overhead Console is the perfect place plus it looks cool. The fluorescent red and green things are bendable 18" Nite Ize Gear Ties. They are available in many colors and different lengths.

With this arrangement, if you have a Bikini Top that you want to leave in place when you put the top up, the Overhead Console will keep the loose Bikini fabric from sagging into the passenger compartment. You can also stow your windshield sun shield between the console and the canvas top.

The bracket for the Overhead Console is powder-coated, and has a very shiny finish, like glass. If your Jeep was painted like this, the body would last 100 years. This means that suction mounts such as those used by GPS units, dash-cameras and cellular phones will have a good surface to "suck to".

 

Photo at left shows the bracket without the canvas pouches attached, and the suction-cup mount (red arrow) I used to re-locate my dash camera from the left top of the windshield, to a better view directly over the wide-angle rearview mirror.
