Thanks everyone!

In answer to blending the OEM console, I ordered a vehicle specific console, part # C-VS-1200-EXPD-1 from Havis, I believe it was about 200 dollars and that comes with the radio face plates you need. It was a little bit of a pain to remove the armrest and take apart the console but if I can figure it out I'm sure anyone else can too. Once you get the armrest off and all of the storage compartment parts out the Havis drops right down and bolts on (you can see the two silver bolts on one of the side pics).

Below are some of the install pics as I had the console torn apart. I decided to add 3 12v rocker switches in case I add more stuff to the install later. One of them is hooked up to the laptop power and the other two are blank for now but can be easily accessed by removing the radios (8 screws). For master power I pulled a 4ga fused at the battery, and hooked it into a 6 fuse block mounted under the console. The master ground is also a 4ga.
