There is a "tri-pod" bracket underneath of the armrest and associated plastics that needs to be changed out to the 05+ model. The 05+ bracket needs to be modded slightly to fit into the rear guide for it to fit correctly, but it's simple with a hacksaw or cutoff/grinder wheel. IIRC, one of the bolts (driver's side) is not re-attached with the new bracket, so only 2 of the 3 are bolted down.

The "Metal center console reinforment bracket" is referring to a metal bracket behind the upright part of the center console, under the radio.
