I have a 95 YJ that I got about 4 months ago. It came with the stock console still in it, piece of crap.
The plastic cup holders were broken, the lock had been busted, and it was really too big for the space b/w the two seats (difficult to slide the passenger one forward to put the dogs in the back, and then slide the seat back again without it kinking up the seatbelt clip).
I pretty much did what other posters suggested, used an old Ammo can (I think mine was a 20mm one though) and fabbed it up. I didn't use a welder though, just some super sturdy bolts, two huge door henges, and a nice handheld electric grinding disk. It turned out great!
Just google "ammo can console" and you'll get a ton of hits with different methodologies.
