Center console storage

I was watching a YouTube video earlier and noticed the arm rest on the center console lifted up so you could store more in the console under the arm rest . Mine does not do this. Only reason I can think of is I have the CD player. I'm not sure what difference that would make. Anybody know for sure?

Re: Center console storage

The cd player takes up the space that the upper tray would occupy. There is an old thread that showed a number of people were getting rid of the cd player and buying the parts to recover that storage space.

That's what I was afraid of. I will try to find the thread and see what would be involved in ditching the CD player. I would much rather have the extra storage.

Re: Center console storage

I ordered mine from here: 68212884AA Mopar FLOOR CONSOLE $85.39

Once it arrives I'll do an install with photos etc.

Anyone have the upper tray part number so the storage gets back the secondary small tray section attached to the lid? (felt lined)
