Hello,

I swear I read a thread around here about someone purchasing a QX56 center console lid for their Armada, but the search is not giving it up. Are you out there?

I'd like to replace my console lid for something padded and comfy, preferrably with a leather cover.

Bump.

Anyone else read the article besides me? Or did I imagine it?

Thanks!

Well, I ordered the console lid anyway. Graphite leather to match my "steel" interior (hopefully) I'll post some pics when I get them changed out. Should be in by the end of the week. It will be nice, as the current hard plastic and tray thing is annoying and uncomfortable.

Funny

Funny thing is I just did this very same thing. Ordered the lid that is. Isn't here yet. I noticed that there was a difference between the lids for front console and the center console .. Any Ideas?? Only ordered one to see if I would like it.. then do the back..

While the Armadas armrests are probably the most comfortable I have ever experienced.. Sometimes I like to drop my arm off onto the console for awhile.
Strange I guess.

Yep, got mine same place, same price. That wasn't my thread before. I didn't know anyone else was considering it. If the new one works out, I'd let my stock one go if someone wants a replacement. Gots a whole 8000 miles on it :)

heh, why are you saying sorry for. This isn't a rare mod. Everyone should get it. I do have to tell you guys though the armada has a torque screws, The one on the QX has phillips head screws. Also the lock for the QX one is missing so I just swapped my armada one over. Everything bolts up nicely. It's comfy.

Hmmm..

I have the grey "Steel" interior I think it's called. Anyone know if they have that same color in the QX56? That's the thing that's been keeping me from ordering it, not sure if they have that exact color? Any info guys?

On the QX it's either graphite or willow. There are not other interior colors like steel.

I've got the steel interior as well. Wifey is strongly suggesting I take the cover down to an upholstery shop and get it recovered to match the interior. Guys, you know how it is- wifey wants it, so it shall be done. :)

I'll post pics of the new (matching) cover when I get it done. To me the graphite is ok with the steel (as it's just a darker grey) but it would look better if it matched.

It is comfy though, which was my main concern.

I'd start with a QX lid rather than getting the Armada lid covered in any event. They can use the QX leather for a template. Probably make for a much cleaner finished product.

I also have the backseat qx console too. It's exactly the same as the front one. All you have to swap over is the latch. I think my interior is complete now..heh
