x2. What do you want your console to do? You might want it to have different features than what I want mine to have.
Exactly. I completely transformed the PO's VDP deluxe console to accommodate my switches, cb and installed seat belt keepers (its a wide console) out of an old web belt the army gave me years ago. I just did some surgery on a cheap smittybilt locking tuffy knock off to make it work for a buddy last Saturday afternoon. For some, the ammo can works. I carry two of them with me in the back full of spare parts during big runs. It all comes down to what's important. For some its security and having a place to lock their belongings. For others its a set of cupholders and even still that armrest to anchor your elbow is beneficial to some other drivers.
I always recommend joining a club. If for nothing else, you can test out stuff like center consoles with your hands instead of imagining what it would look like outside that catalog.

I got a Tuffy and its like fort knox! They are pricy & are a tight fit between the seats though. If I were to do it again I would spend the cash on something else & do the Ammo can!

After my THIRD stereo disappeared from the dash, i stumped up for a Tuffy. Had it 14 years and still recommend it.
Have my stereo in the front compartment, and the CB mounted inside the main box, on the side wall. Cut a notch for the mike when its needed, so i can close the lid. Storage seems limitless (at least in the YJ version).
BTW, I left the dash opening vacant, so crooks just think there is no stereo to take.

Now, what's best for you and your wallet? That's up to you. I went with a Tuffy knock off from eBay and have been satisfied with it for about 5 years now. A plus was that it was under $100 to the door.

I have totally removed my console, and I haven't looked back. I like the clean and simple look. I did add one adjustable cup holder.
