Console Vaults w/ CD player?

Anyone know of a console vault that will work with the remote-mounted CD player? Every one of them I've looked at so far do not fit. I need a safe place to lock up my carry piece when I'm going someplace where it isn't welcome. I've got power seats, so an under seat vault won't work. I'd prefer not to have to put it behind the rear seats - disarming and securing in the back is not the ideal situation.

Thanks!

And I'm going to short-circuit this and call myself out as an idiot. I searched, but spelled console wrong so nothing came back. Subsequent search reveals this has been asked!

So, now that I've admitted being an idiot, anyone have any updates to the earlier threads?

I'm thinking about removing the CD player to install one. We never use it and would prefer it wasn't in there. If we go that route I'll post something on the process.

It would be retained to be put back in if needed in the future.

I don't think you have to. After searching this site, I was directed to consolevault.com. They have one on their website that says it's for the 1500/2500 with CD player. However, the 2500 & 3500 share the same console, so I think they either have an error and it's supposed to say 2500/3500, or the 1500 uses the same console as well. Regardless, supposedly it fits, with the CD player.

If you have the full-floor console then that should work. In our case we have the underseat console. We'd have to pull the CD player out to put in their unit for that version. I suspect we'd have to get the factory piece for that without the CD player too.

Thumbs up

I just installed a Console Vault today, and I am impressed with the design, quality of construction and the overall fit and finish. Very pleased with it.

Nothing needs to be disassembled to install it. There are two self-tapping bolts included that when threaded into the sides of the 'vault' tap themselves into the plastic inside the console sides. This does leave two 3/8" diameter marks/holes, but it is how it's designed to be a quick & simple installation. I figure that *if* I ever sell my RAM, the Console Vault will go with it anyway, as it's a custom fit and wouldn't work in any other vehicle unless it's the same make/model.

I did use a 17/64th drill bit to drill through the plastic (carefully as not to punch through anything else underneath) so the 'self-tapping' bolts would have a better bite and not press on the sides of the console. There are no instructions included in the kit, since it's such a simple installation. I did call their 800 number just to confirm that it was really that easy and I wasn't missing some paperwork.

Here are some pictures of mine installed. It took me about 30 minutes, which included removing the vault after I first installed it to drill the holes where the bolts left their mark in the plastic. If I had to install another one in another RAM, it'd take 5 minutes, 10 maybe including getting the tools to do the job. It's that easy.

I highly recommend this product for those of you desiring an extra level of defense in the event your vehicle is broken into. The Console Vault will definitely prevent (worst case definitely complicate and slow down) someone from getting the items locked inside.

Very nice looking!

You may consider putting bolt caps on those two bolts to prevent items from possibly getting scratched or gouged.
