  • Install And Tech Information


Increase the storage capacity of the center console and help avoid messy liquid spills in the interior of your '94-'97 Dodge Ram with our handy center console cup holder.The cup holder is form fitted to the inside diameters of the console. It is installed in minutes to the existing console.

Using the velcro strip included with the cup holder, it attaches to the inside of the console. Once installed you will find that the thickness of the cup holder does not allow the console lid to latch properly, but this can be easily fixed. (See note below.)

Cup wells are 4" deep. Upper diameter: 3-3/4". Lower diameter: 2-3/4". Has slot for coffee mug handle. The side pocket is the perfect dimension to hold your cell phone and/or wallet

NOTE: The latch closure in the '94-'97 trucks can be adjusted by turning the metal shaft extending from the base of the console counterclockwise to increase the height. Instructions are included with the cup holder.

NOTE: Due to clearance issues we do not recommend this cup holder to be used with manual transmissions. While it can be installed it will cause interference with 2nd, 4th and reverse depending on the cup size.

This really helped with the odd placement of the OEM. Dodge Ram drink holders, and added extra storage for small items.

Flimsy junk not worth 60 dollars with shipping as thin plastic as it is made after. Installation is can only be made by turning a welded, glued latch not that I would have had to tear my console apart to budge.not worth the money
Owner Response:Thank you for the feedback and sorry that the cup holder was not what you expected. This is a product that we have been offering for over 15 years with positive feedback. I am not familiar with a center console latch stud that is welded or glued from the factory. Installation is typically very quick and painless. Please feel free to return for a refund.

Works for me

Got it as a gift, boy howdy it sure does work!

I'm Happy

Installed this cup holder about ten years ago. It is a MAJOR improvement over what the factory installed. I wouldn't trade it for anything. From a "bang-for-your-buck" standpoint, it's one of the best things I've done to my truck.

Fits very well I recommend screwing it in for a more secure bond.

Good Quality
Oct 16, 2016  |  By David Wood
This is a decent price for this usually "overpriced everywhere" item. When I got it, I found the price fair considering the good quality. (I'm cheap). This item is thick and solid and should be durable.

Works very well, And makes it convenient to have your drink so close versus having the drink holder in the dash far away from the driver.

Fits great with easy install

Cup holder works flawlessly! I don't know what Dodge was thinking with the factory cup holders, but this is definitely the solution!!

Works Great

I purchased this due to the poor design of the factory cup holder, was getting tired of my drinks spilling everytime I turned. This install very quick and easy, just like instructions said. I could not be happier.

Top notch product

I received my cupholder after reading about it on several of the dodge/cummins forums. It arrived quickly and installed perfectly. I couldn't be more happy with Genos cup holder. Leaps and bounds better than the worthless oem holder.

Wish I found this earlier!
Feb 19, 2017  |  By Hubert Nelson
Very easy to put in. Convenient and works grest. I have a 5 speed manual so the dhifter hits the drivers side drink (if you have a large cup in it) but still works like a charm! Wish I found this earlier and saved myself countless spilled drinks all over my cab from that worthless factory cup holder! Buy this! You won't regret it!

Good product

Why the manufacturer didn't think of this is a mystery to me. This is the most helpful accessory I have found. I love it!

Best product ive purchased for my ram. I've used this cupholder for a few weeks now with no problems whatsoever.

Better than Factory
Mar 7, 2017  |  By Tom
Cup holder was installed on a 97 1500 with a 5 speed. The holder fits well but it is a close fit between the shifter and the front of the holder. The only downside is the depth of the side holders. They are only about an inch of so deep which may be good foe coins but useless for anything else. If at least one of them went full depth like the cup holder openings, it would be great for a cell phone.

Cup holder works great. Using on a 95 dodge with 5 speed. Driver side cup holder hard to use with bigger cups when driving.

It works ok
Apr 2, 2017  |  By Jonathon Hutton
The cup holder works well. It fits my yeti perfectly. But the shifter does hit in my 2nd gen 3500 4x4. But it'll still go into gear just watch ya fingers.

This is the best thing that ever happened to my 1997 dodge. I really am going to miss the pop all over my truck. Thank you for a great product.

Ram Cupholder

Awesome, exactly what I needed for my morning coffee. Had to mod the diameter of holder and put weather stripping for a perfect fit but holder is well made!

Perfect Product
Aug 26, 2017  |  By Cody
Worth every penny. Installed in my 96 and I now have reliable cup holders. Mine is a 5 speed and 2nd and 4th do get close to some bottles, but I would highly recommend this to every second gen owner.

Cup Holder Shake Down
Aug 30, 2017  |  By John Edwards
Writing this review from Faro, Yukon Territory, far off the beaten path, so to speak. Driven hundreds of very rough dirt/gravel road getting to this point, and my new cup holder from Genos for my '97 Ram has stood the test! No more coffee cups rattling and shaking and jumping out of the original fouled up cup holder! If you don't like spilled drinks and flying cups, get one of these aftermarket cup holders from Genos! Then head for the Yukon!

The cup holder was just what the doctor ordered. It fit well and went on easy, and gave me the additional cup space I needed. Plus it looks really good. I give it 5 stars.

It is a great fit, easy to install! 2nd and 4th gear get a lottle close to tall drinks, but that's to be expected. Much batter than the stock location.

The instructions could have a better picture, I was putting this on the floor til my smart ass wife figured out where it attached to the console!

Good quality

Fast shipping. Solid piece. I have a manual transmission and the shifter hits the drinks in the cup holder.

HOLY CRAP CUP HOLDERS! its been YEARS in my 95 with no cup holders this thing ROCKS

Just the Ticket
Nov 21, 2017  |  By Chris Manning
This replacement cup holder is just the ticket, The original dash mounted cup holder is such a poor design, poorly executed. The Geno's replacement is easy to install on my 1996 arm rest. I would recommend that the directions be rewritten to be more clear.

The best drink holder
Apr 27, 2018  |  By Tommy
I received my console drink holder today it looks perfect and fits great. I highly recommend this for your dodge pickup. Easier access to get to your beverage and you can put your cell phone in the slot for easy access in case of a emergency. Thanks again genos.

The cup holder is not cut to fit to the console as tight on the outside as they were in the past. But puts everything in the perfect spot while driveing

Cup holder is a very nice piece. Installed just as it should. I feel it was a little pricey for a piece of plastic, but is what it is. Only real complaint is there looks to be a mold defect in between the cup holders, in the plastic. There is a goofy square, offset of center in between the holders.

Works Great

Easy to install, works well, wish the phone holding space was deeper

Pretty nice
May 30, 2018  |  By Tory
The cup holder works great, I used double sided tape instead of the velcro so the cupholders are actually held in place. It slid side to side a little with the Velcro. Also I have the manual in my truck, and when shifting into 2nd the shifter will occasionally hit the cup holders, could almost use a notch out of the front left corner. Other than that its a solid piece, and 100x better than the factory cup holders.

Great center console

Installed the center console cup holder in my 97 Dodge. It fits well and works better than the factory installed cup holders. And the price was great too!

So-so for stick shift
Aug 3, 2019  |  By Lyle
This cup holder would work excellent for trucks with automatics, but I didn't like how my stick shift would hit the cups in 2nd and 4th gear.

Great product! Finally have something to hold drinks in my 1997 Dodge Ram. Fits great, works great.

Mar 25, 2020  |  By Terry
Just got it yesterday. Took a few minutes to adjust latch but fit right in. Stays in place with lid down but will put screw in if needed. Wish I would've ordered this a long time ago. Only drawback I can see is phoneholder could be deeper but since I rarely have a passenger will just use other cupholder.

Bought this after replacing the dash cup holder multiple times. This is great for auto trans trucks-no conflict. For manual trucks, depending on seat posistion 1st gear sometimes hits the cup holder. Also, depending on the size of the drink reverse is problematic. Overall, good product though
