The center console is a black hole!

I am fairly new to the interior of newer Wranglers, but the center console is a freaking black hole of space! I can fit my multi-meter, gloves, recovery strap, chargers, and a bunch of other things in there. I am used to the dented tissue box size console in Cherokees.

I am insanely jealous of this black hole you speak of... I dont have a console at all, which means every little thing I ever take into my car (CDs, chargers, loose change, flashlight, etc.) gets plunked down into a pile in between my seats

You can get a fairly generic console from Tuffy that is secure and provides similar black hole capabilities.

I am thinking about getting a Tuffy insert for security.

Wiener dogs fit down into the center console comfortably too! The dog went there exploring on her own of course.

Mine literally is a black hole. It has a hole at the bottom and sometimes stuff falls through and I can't figure out where it is. I've found weird little goodies underneath my console
I plan on building a new one sometime in the future, was going to build one to house 2 8" subs but now that I already have extra bass I just want to build a new one. My stocker is cracked everywhere and just needs to go. But I will admit I have had tons of stuff crammed in there before

Back when I had theYJ, I used one of those Stanley lunchbox/thermos carrier combos (the green one) as a center console. Its a good fit in between the seats, and thats also where I mounted the fire extinguisher (rounded groove made for the thermos). All I did to make it level was bend up a four-inch riser out of aluminum and slid it under the seat belt floor mounting points! The only drawback was that it wasnt lockable. No big deal since it had a carrying handle: Id just pull the whole thing out and into the house at night! (No garage/curb parking at the time.)
