Overhead console for '12 Ford?

Does anyone know who sells an overhead console (mounts under sun visors in the cab)? I was going to buy the Shelf-It one to snag the side brackets off of and have a custom one made but it turns out they only make them up to 2008. I'm not sure what changed but they assured me the '08 and older won't fit my rig. Surely somebody out there makes one...

Thanks

Many of us have. I've got a DIY floating around but not sure how to link it with this tablet thingy.
Search my posts!

Re: Overhead console for '12 Ford?

Thanks, Scotty. I spent a bit of time researching and found a thread a few days ago but it didn't have what I was looking for. (not sure if it was your DIY).

Does anyone sell the consoles?

Thanks

I'm not sure, I only know of the one you mentioned above for brackets. Someone SHOULD make one though. They would sell a lot of them.

Re: Overhead console for '12 Ford?

I already called them and they told me the '08 won't fit. The sales person had put in a request to get the product line updated but they haven't done it. I've no clue what the difference is. Does anyone know? Thoughts if it would be possible to modify the '08 ones?

Thanks

Re: Overhead console for '12 Ford?

Shameless bump for a possible solution. Is there really a difference in mounting these things pre and post '08? I just can't see it...

Re: Overhead console for '12 Ford?

Did you call SMB? Might be expensive but I wonder if they would ship you their generic model?

I didn't know SMB had one. Is it all wood? Even the mounting 'brackets'?

Thanks!
