Build using scrap pine and cedar. The old plastic cupholder broke so i decided to make a sturdier one.

I still need to paint it and find a stronger magnet to hold it closed. But it seems to work pretty good.

Good work. I especially like the way you shaped it to fit the dashboard

Look at K&J Magnetics, If they do not have a magnet that will work, no one will.

I had a ‘99 Ram 1500 as well. The cup holder was one of the few things that did not break, fixed it by getting ‘13 F150

Good Luck.

I’ve got a ‘99 too. It gets about 12 MPG but I live very close to work. My cupholder is unbroken, but the dash is cracked. I keep my sunglasses in that little hole on the right.

Kirbi, this could not have come at a better time. I have 2001 RAM pu truck and was just yesterday trying to figure out how to make one of these.

Now that’s a really classy cup storage holder for the car that I’d be happy to have in my vehicle!
