Any experiences with Console Vaults?

Hi, new to the forum...first post here.

Just got a 2015 Altitude in Maximum Steel yesterday, promptly put black Gorilla "system" wheel locks on last night, and promptly drove over a screw this evening. Getting it fixed first thing in the morning, but changing a flat wasn't part of my idea of enjoying my first 24 hours.

Anyway, I need something to lock up my CCW, AND have been looking at the Console Vault. Does anyone have one installed? I was kind of surprised to see how small the space in the center console is, and I'm wondering with the vault installed, is there really enough room for anything bigger than a pea shooter?

-I have one in my 14. My XDS 45 fits quite well in there, but will only lay flat if its unloaded.

Re: Any experiences with Console Vaults?

Thanks for the replies, sorry for the newbie error.

I did a search and only came up with 2 threads, though I only searched in the WK2 forum because I have a Grand Cherokee...and didn't see anyone talk specifically about how much space the console had after the installation. I'll search for Jason911's posts.

Re: Any experiences with Console Vaults?

I've got one in mine and like it quite a bit. It works great for locking up phones and wallets when we're at the beach, but it takes some maneuvering to get my full size M&P9 in and out. There's enough room inside, but getting it through the opening is tricky. What are you carrying?

Okay, thanks, that gives me some kind of idea (I went on and ordered it earlier anyway). I carry a Glock 30S...a 19 on rare occasion. So I'm guessing the 30S won't be much of a problem, but the 19 might be because it's taller.

Re: Any experiences with Console Vaults?

Yeah the 30S should be fine. I left my 19 in VA, otherwise I could tell you for sure, but the M&P is just barely too big so you might be good with either.

If you wouldn't mind, would love to hear your thoughts once you've installed it. I've been on the fence due to the cost so I've been looking for any reviews.

I'd be glad to. I'll post back on this thread. It's scheduled to arrive Thursday.

I have a Console Vault in my '15 limited. It's worth it, I love it. It's also fairly easy to install.

Can you provide some photos of your console vault installed? Including some of the interior shots of it?

Im assuming you lose access to the power source located in the center console because of the safe, correct?
