Re: Anyone make their own center console

i made a tuffy! i used a large ammo can. it is weather tight, just the right hight for an arm rest, and i can lock it. the large ammo cans have a latch at each end and not a hinge so i cut the latch off one end and welded a beefy door hinge ( modified of coarse). i left the latch on the front side and welded a hasp loop on so that when the latch is closes the hasp loop passes through the center grove in the latch. i can throw a lock on it and go. i havn't figured out cup holders yet but i think i am goint to make a cb mount/cup holder deal that will mount infront of it. it was cheap and easy and has LOTS of room for winch remote, leather gloves, pressure guage, and that just covers the bottom. like i said lots of room.
