Broke my center console...ideas?

I was taking my interior out to bedline the tub, and the PO decided to cover one of the screws holding the center console in place with a 1/4" round piece of aluminum, leaving me no access to the screw. After trying prying, drilling, and cutting, I finally broke the stupid thing in half. Oops. Here's my question:

It's a 97 5 speed Sahara, with the one piece console. Can the two piece console be used? Will the screw holes match up? If not, anyone have any ideas that won't cost me an arm and a leg?

I have a center console that came out of my 98 5 speed that I would let go cheap if you want it.

i am going to replace mine with a 40mm ammo can. but was wondering the how that can fit. the 40 is big but would be perfect. besides either will go with the multiple ammo cans mounted on my tj now.

That looks great! I think that's the route I'll take. Where did you get your can from? I know of a few places close that I can go looking this weekend, but I didn't know if anyone has luck online.

I did not get mine from there. I found mine at the local surplus store. There are a few other places i found on google. Just type in monocular night vision ammo can. Btw its padded inside.

I had found some for about the same price at other stores online. They want $20 for shipping. And there is no way I'm paying that much for shipping. There's a few places close that I should be able to find something. Thanks again to everyone for the info!
