New to the forum, but I've been back to this thread quite a few times before I decided to sign up. I finally found that lock searching around online. It's a Keyed Hasp lock. Here are the links to it at both HomeDepot and Lowes:
got the locks for mine. I'm in the process of putting together the center console...has to wait while I finish the seat brackets for my new seats before it gets installed though.
I'm using a 1500rd 7.62 ammocan. Because it open froms both sides, I had to weld the latch on one side on and then cut off the stop that wraps up around the edge of the top on that side. Here's the pictures with the lock installed:
