Anyone have one of these? If I replace my carpet the cup holder goes away.

My engineering spidy senses tells me relocating the RCM is a very bad idea, covering it with a cup holder was a little better but not much.

I have only seen one of them come through at work. With your access to pretty much a full fab shop I would make a nice aluminum cover that also doubles as a toggle switch holder or gauge pod. It would be something one off

But being a regular cab the factory cup holder/rcm cover gives you more storage

Is it's new location the issue? Could you 180° it?

My ex cab I think looks funny with cup holders in the console and cup holders in the... cup holder. Only 2 people can ride in a reg cab why would they need 4 drinks?

I like the aluminum cover idea but shiny aluminum might look funny with the rest of the interior.

I'll wait for you to find me one :)

Some rangers had a black box that covered the rcm instead of cup holders. Which is what mine had originally

4 cup holders for 2. The closest 2 are for your warm beverages (coffee or tea) and the other 2 are for your cold beverages ( bottled water or cans of soda pop). Lol.

Well if someone can find me one they can make a couple bucks.
I have carpet samples on the way and the day they hit the door I'm ordering a rug

I decided on a darker carpet. The company that has the carpets also has lengths you can buy, I'm going to get enough extra to cover a sub box, if I get it all at once it will match 100%.

This place has some schniz:

Jamman,

Did you ever locate one of these.

Wondering what these are worth ?

New or used ?


I think these were on the Manual transfer case truck... i.e. FX4 !

Never did find one. I see "the part number" for sale in several places but no pictures. Afraid to order on just a part number.

V8 Level II will have the part numbers, send him a PM, Bob purchased a lot of these things and he keeps the numbers handy.

I will look through my part bin, I think I have a new one but do not know how much to ask for it !

Yes, correct part number is 3L5Z-13111A74-AAA. This is for the black RCM cover as used ONLY on the 2002~2003 FX4's with manual transmission AND manual transfer case. Same as pictured in 1st post. The last price I remember on eBay was around 40~45 shipped. These are long gone now.
