The Rugged Ridge Dash Organizer is an innovative product incorporates existing mounting points to install a dual tray storage system right on your dash. Now you can easily store coins, pens, sunglasses, cell phones and other small items right in reach of both the passenger and driver.
Installation is a snap; simply remove the original equipment screw covers on your dash, screw in the exclusive double headed mount and attach the Dash Organizer.
It is that easy! Each Dash Organizer incorporates UV treated thermoplastic mounts and two trays with a painted aluminum cross tube for the ultimate in flexible design.
The Rugged Ridge Dash Organizer for the Jeep Wrangler JK is by far one of the better items I have installed in our Jeep Wrangler JK. It was not hard to install at all it just takes a little time. The most time is in making sure you install it without losing any items in the dash holes. I dont know about you but I have dropped many things down the back of the dash.
Once installed it has two trays that slide back and forth and lock down. They are only on the drivers side of the bar as not to interfere with the air bag deployment. The trays come with a nice liner to items dont slide around in them. There is a front hollow square where you can clip on a phone holder or other item.
The item is very stable once installed and does not move around or shake. It is pretty solid. The trays hold a lot of stuff, and you can quickly take out the pads to shake them off or clean them. The plastic is heavy duty, the rod is nice and sturdy and the ends mount into stock holes in the Jeep dash for a clean and easy install.
What we liked about the Rugged Ridge Dash Organizer:
- Easy to Install
- Two Compartments with nonslip pads.
- Adjustable on one side.
- Looks good in the interior.
- Is easy to clean.
What we DID NOT like about the Rugged Ridge Dash Organizer:
- It does stick up on the dash so you can feel a little bit overwhelmed by losing some space there but you get used to it.
- There is no adjust-ability to the passenger side. But understandable with the air bag being there.
I do wish it came in some different colors, or that it could have been two tone like a black and silver. All in all I love the dash. I have used it now for about 5 months and have had zero issues with it. It has been in the rain, and sun with the top on, and off. This is probably one of the better buys I have done for my Jeep because I use this product each and every day.
You can get your own Rugged Ridge 13551.10 Dash Organizer on Amazon for under $100.00 and I say that is a great deal. We give this item 4 out of 5 lug nuts. Because while it is a near perfect product not every product can get a 5 star rating. Otherwise they just are not that special.
