    Here's my cupholder solution. Nothing as cool as the 3d printed versions, but it works--

    I used a cup holder insert for a GMC Yukon ($9.45 on eBay), an old piece of scrap wood and some lateral thinking. The wood piece is sized for the center console pocket and press fits into place. I bolted the wood piece to the cupholder insert and everything stays in place nicely.

      Another huge thumbs up for GEARSWITCH. I recently noticed that the cup holder I bought from them in 2015 had broken. It hasn't had much use, so I reached out to Gearswitch, to let them know where it failed, in case others had failed in the same location. Not only did they let me know they'd improved the design, but also reminded me of the lifetime warranty. Received my TOTALLY FREE replacement yesterday. That's customer service!

            Grafted a couple pieces of abs pipe in. 8 months later I finally got around to filling, sanding, and painting. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
