Any ideas for a cup holder insert in OEM center cubby? (& 1 other question)

Been hunting around online for an insert of some kind I could use for 2x drink holders in the open part of the box in the front of the OEM cubby. I don't want to change out the OEM unit, so looking for a solution that might work. The measurements are 9.5" x 4.75". Not sure if any vendors make one to fit, didn't find one online. Also totally open to a more creative solution. thanks for any thoughts!



Another probably very easy one and borderline dumb question. I have an OEM light swtich I'm planning to use to replace a 3rd party switch I'm using temporarily for fog lights. I couldn't find a harness / 4 pin connector / pigtail w wires, any suggestions for where I could find one that fits?



Many thanks!!

Your cubby is missing the factory cup holder that goes there.

Thank you! both great leads. the Lucky8 website is partially down, so can call them. In looking for the OEM insert, I came across a Tuffy drink holder which should also fit in there fine as well, little extra room but that's no problem.

I installed 2 of these in my old Landy. They can be closed when not in use. About $10 each at West Marine.

Thank you, another good solution. Found the same ones (or very similar) on amazon prime so will give a set of them a shot. Appreciate the suggestions!

Many thanks!!
Give Josh at British Wiring a call. Send him that photo and he should be able to help you locate the plug.
