Replacement Console

I have an 08 JKU Sahara. I looked at getting the sliding storage console from quadratec but do not like the idea that there is no latch/lock. I would still need to use my existing console for storage.

I know they have another product that is just a padded arm rest, however, I like the idea of the sliding console. The factory one sits to far back.

As neither of these are exactly what I'm looking at, i'm now considering replacing the entire console.

Does anyone know if any of the replacement console have a sliding arm rest? The big complaints I'm looking at solving are:
1) console does not come up high enough
2) the console sits too far back
3) lack of storage (least concerning of the issues)

What have you all done concerning the factory console?

I think the OEM console suits most people just fine. The only replacement that I'm aware of is the Tuffy Security Console.
Tuffy 139-08 - Tuffy Security Console Insert for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Do a search. There are pictures of the Tuffy console installed along with a review.

Sorry to hijack this but..
As pervasive as the jeep movement is, are their any companies that offer customizable options for the center console? As many options as we have for suspension parts you would figure..,
