Aftermarket center console/armrest?

Postby HighSpeed [OP] » Jul 16 2012, 4:12pm

I like the size of my armrest/console in my '12 Silverado, but why didn't they make it with a hinged lid? Does anyone know of an aftermarket replacement console with a hinged lid? I'd like a place to keep some CDs, maybe install one of these to secure a pistol:

Guess I'm missing the boat here? My 2011 is hinged on top and opens to plenty of storage. Plus the jump seat has lockable storage perfect for a 9mm with under barrel laser site. ( Not that I have one in mine ;)) Are you talking about the full center console? Cause if you are, and its ebony, I'll swap ya!

My console doesn't have a lid, just a tray and some cup holders. Looks like this: http://buyersguide.caranddriver.com/med ... 20_140.jpg

Weird, I know. What's yours look like? If the earlier years had a hinged console, I wonder if I can get one off eBay and swap it out?

The rampage console looks nice. I'm gonna look for some pics to see how they look inside a Silverado.

Does anybody have any recommendations for a lockable yet accessible gun safe, preferably concealed? I like the console vault, but since I don't have a hinged lid it would be too obvious. I might just have to bite the bullet and buy an LTZ console or Rampage and then buy the console vault.
