Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. So, today I'm here with the Alterum Grab Handle Cup and Phone Holder fitting all 2011 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So, if you're in search of some up front storage solution that's very accessible to your passenger as well as you while you're driving, this is gonna be a great option to take a look at. So, this is gonna hold any size phones, any size cups as well as any other small items that you want upfront in that cab area. This is going to be pretty durable and stand up to any bumpy road, it's gonna be made of ABS plastic construction. The mount, as well as the spacer on the other side are gonna be a strong aluminum construction and it even has some nice foam grip in the inside of this cup holder making sure that nothing falls out. What I do like about this is it is spring loaded, so this is gonna accommodate for any sized cup or phone that you choose to put in there and it's also gonna be very affordable.
So, this is gonna be roughly $35, making this one of your most inexpensive choices on the page for up front storage, especially of something like this. Now, other solutions are usually gonna be mounted up to your visor or mounted up to your dash and they aren't gonna be as easily accessible or as affordable as this. So, if you're looking for something super affordable, very easy to install for some up front storage solutions, this is gonna be a great option to take a look into.
So, speaking of that, install is gonna be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, probably gonna take you about 10 minutes to install. So, speaking of that install, let's jump into that now. The tools I used for my install were a trim removal tool, a quarter-inch drive ratchet, a three-inch extension, and an eight-millimeter deep socket.
So, the first step of our install is to take off this front trim panel. So, you're gonna need a trim removal tool. So, you can just wedge it underneath and pull back. So, once you have it semi out, you can pull it all the way out and then you're going to need a eight-millimeter socket as well as an extension and there are two eight-millimeter bolts back holding this on. So, it's gonna be difficult to see but you should be able to reach those back there. We're gonna go ahead and remove those. Move to the other side. Right. And once those are out, we'll be able to separate this from our Wrangler.
So, now we can take our cup holder, making sure that it's oriented in the correct way. You wanna make sure that this little bottom tab is facing the floor. So, we're just going to stick that on there and it will go around that column there. Then we can take our spacer plate for the other side and install that and then we can just reinstall our trim piece.
So, then now that we have this back in place, we can take our bolt. I would recommend to put it on your socket like this because it is pretty deep back there. Once you have it in that hole, you can start to thread it in and tighten it down. Now, I'm not going to tighten that up all the way, I wanna get the other bolt in, make sure everything is lining up first. And then what we can do at this point is just tighten those down with that eight-millimeter socket. Then we can go back to this one, make sure that that's fully tightened. So, our last step is just to pop this trim piece back in place. You just give it a push then it'll pop right back in. So, once that's back in, then you're all set to go.
So, that's gonna wrap it up for my quick review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe. And for more videos like this, always keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.
