Default Any ideas for a drink holder on a '91 regular cab?

My girlfriend loves the truck I got for her but now she wants to have a coffee with her in the morning while she drives to work, any ideas? I'd love a pic of your drink receptacle innovations!

Default Drink holder.........

Hey that's a good idea. I never thought to make one, I was going to go pre-fab, maybe grab one from a '95 or something like that....anymore ideas?

Pretty easy, one screw in the middle. Works great, I think from Walmart?

I bought my truck with those hang on door cup holders. It keeps the drinks out of the way, but they spill sometimes since I have to slam them shut haha.

Im gonna look into reupholstering the fold down arm rest to incorporate cup holders.

My truck is an '87 and I don't have to slam the doors. You might want to invest in some hinge pins.

I have a WalMart special console sitting on the bench.

I miss those old dashes, always worked perfect to just set the mug or can on the dash over the gauges leaned against the windshield. The passenger can just hold theirs.

Well I already had a cup holder on my bench, but one wasn't enough. So I just bolted a cup holder spliter that would be out of the way of the shifter that could still hold 2 tall large drinks.

My buddy had a 87, and he could set a open lid cup of coffee on his dash, and it wouldnt move or spill a bit.

His entire truck could defy the laws of physics though, you could throw a bottle of soda out the window, and it would end up in the bed, anti litter truck, haha
