    With some trimming after you cut the ashtray out,
    Yes you can put the 96-98 cup holder insert in.
    No you can't put the 99-04 cup holders in as the top of the consoles are shaped totally different. Why wouldn't you just swap the entire console like I did?

    If he has Tan I can see why he would be asking. I don't like painting or using vinyl dye on parts. I don't think it lasts.

    No that's a fog light switch with the trim painted silver.

    There is some incorrect info in this thread....


    You want to put one of these cup holders in your ashtray, correct?

    Well here's the write up for it. I think there's a write up somewhere on this forum, can't find it.

    As for the cup holder piece, I believe it started in 98? and went to atleast 2000 (I have 2000 interior and have that piece). It might have still been available in 2001? Then they switched to the one piece that fivepointslow posted above.
    It doesn't really matter, just find that cup holder piece

    To address the question, yes. But not 99-04.
    I cant remember the switch, but you can get the cup holder from 98- atleast 2000.
    There is a switch to one piece center console which obviously wont fit.
