Center console question

My stock console stops just behind the shifter and cup holder. There is no arm rest/storage area over the E brake. I know that Tuffy makes just the storage portion that I can add to mine. Are there any companies out there that make this part in plastic, or anything cheaper then the Tuffy part. I would like an armrest but don't really need the higher priced metal security console. It doesn't have to look stock but I don't want an ammo can or something like that. I went to JC Whitney first as they usually have everything but didn't really see what I was looking for. I know there are about as many Jeep aftermarket parts as any other vehicle. My interior is Agate so something in black is going to be the best color match.

The ones I saw on Ebay were either OEM full consoles or security consoles. They have a bunch of CJ stuff but none for TJ.

Why not change it out to a OEM full console?

I found a full console on jeepsareus (wrong color) and it was $439.00. In the last year or so I have been looking around on Ebay and there has only been one or two in Agate that have shown up. I am not sure if that was a more popular color so people buy them up quickly or if it was not so common and there are not that many on the market. There are usually a few tan or gray ones.
Have any you painted a full console and had it look decent? I guess Fusion paint might do the job but I was leery about my ability to paint a full console and have it look respectable.

Have you checked scrap yards? There is a Jeep "graveyard" south of me but might be pricey to ship? IDK PM me if you want a phone number.

About 6 months after I got my Jeep was rear ended-went to the Jeep graveyard-and they had the tailgate, bumper, and milk jugs, taillight R side and hinges waiting for me an hour after I called. Even the "right" color. I just removed bad parts and put on good. Only $300 for everything. Yes I took insurance money and ran.
