Install Time & Difficulty
5/16th Drill Bit
1/4 inch flat head screwdriver or power bit
1. Start by removing the trim panel on the back of your center console. You can use a screwdriver to gently pry it off. This step is necessary for accessing the back cover.
2. Mock up the panel by placing the MOLLE panel on the back cover of the center console, positioning it as desired. Use the panel as a template to mark the positions for drilling.
3. Carefully drill holes using a 5/16th drill bit at the marked positions on the center console's back cover. Ensure the holes align with the mounting points on the MOLLE panel.
4. Secure the MOLLE panel to the back cover of the center console using the included mounting hardware (bolts, nuts, washers, and spacers). Tighten the hardware to ensure a secure attachment.
5. Once the MOLLE panel is securely attached, reattach the trim panel that you removed in Step 1. Ensure the trim panel fits snugly over the MOLLE panel and the center console.
6. OPTIONAL: If the center console lid feels heavy after attaching the MOLLE panel, you can adjust the spring tension to help with lifting. This can be done by carefully inserting nickels or similar objects between the springs and the console's interior. Experiment with the number of nickels to find the right tension.
7. Open and close the center console lid to ensure it operates smoothly and securely with the MOLLE panel attached. You've successfully installed the BuiltRight Industries Center Console MOLLE Panel, adding versatility and functionality to your truck's interior. Enjoy the convenience of mounting accessories like flashlights, pens, and knives.
