Anyone have any creative ideas for using the screen's odd side storage?

Any third party accessories available?

I'm thinking the switch bank in a Bronco overhead style / sw type would be nice. I know almost nothing about 3D printers but:
1) Could you print a custom insert to mount the switches in, maybe Mav / Ford logo, name the sw functions? I'm going to be looking for a fog light sw location, maybe something exist as an unused knock out. Maybe even have a small accent color trim ring / line (LED lit or printed) to match interior blue / orange.
2) What do you think about getting a custom wiring harness in to that area without pulling the entire dash out?

NOS gauge / switches!?
Being a Novice 3D Printer enthusiast myself my only immediate suggestion is do not use PLA but to use PETG filament. PLA will warp and deform in the cabin heat of the truck in the sunlight. PETG has a higher temp range than the PLA. I printed a bunch of mask ear savers for the medical community thru ought the pandemic out of PLA and have to tell people to not leave them in their cars because they will melt and distort.

Not big enough.

Read a comment that sunglasses won't even fit in it.
"Not big enough"... is that what you're told often? LOL? Just enjoy the humor...

If I still smoked, my cigarettes probably would fit there.

Got to test drive a Mav today. First thing I did was see if my tin of Skaol fit in that spot! Only fit on an angle though.

I am waiting to get mine to start some molding to see if I can fit a small Raspberry Pi screen there (Pi itself can go elsewhere if need be). From there, it could be anything: light controller, digital switchboard, digital gauges of all kinds with the right sensors or tie-in to the vehicle, radio signal meter (or even wifi signal meter to find wifi hotspots you drive by), an SDR scanner, or whatever else creative minds could come up with for that space. It would be nice if someone could measure the hole, but I can wait til I get mine to make a custom 3D printed mount for a small touchscreen and tinker.

My wife said "right on". That's all she drinks except for a glass of wine on occasion. So I hope she just doesn't drink them while driving MY TRUCK!!!
