The forum search feature doesn't seem to work (just gives me errors when I try to search for anything). What is the trick with removing the center console? I found various instructions, removed all of the bolts/nuts, and then hit the center bracket backwards to push to console back "at least 2 inches" to remove, but when I hit with hammer (BIG HAMMER)... it budges absolutely ZERO. Lol. Thanks!

Same error here trying to use forum search.
Yeah, def weird. I've been kind of only half poking onto the forum for the past few years just checking up on stuff as my Xploder has been my side project and kind of neglected lately, lol, so not sure if search has been wonky just recently or for a while. Hopefully fixed soon as it's really hard to navigate without any form of search! Lol.

Ok.. I was able to bear hug the console and hulk pull it for a good 30 min on and off between hitting with a big ass hammer and was able to pull out the console, lol. I ripped out the old nasty carpet as well so all is well :D
