Lockbox and a cupholder

So I'd like to buy a center console for my TJ, something that locks up, but can hold some more of my valuables and whatnot, and maybe even have an extra cupholder! It's a pain in the only having one cupholder, especially with a gf that is prone to spilling, or even forgetting she has a drink in the first place!

The issue is, I can't seem to find any for the TJ's. They make PLENTY for the YJ's. The only thing I can think of is because of the space in between the seats? I'm starting to think if I'm going to use my softop in the summer, I should maybe invest in one of these instead: Instatrunk
I've seen the Tuffy ones with the speakers in them that sit above the wheel wells, but quite frankly, I think they look gross, and prone to rust at that. I'd rather nail down a money lockbox from a girl scout cookie sale and duct tape a speaker to it than buy one of those.

How does everybody deal with leaving their valuables in the car (besides not leaving anything valuable in the car, I understand that's the best solution )

Tuffy makes a center console for TJ's.

This is the one I have, along with the optional 2-drink holder on the back.

Installing it was a pain in the ass, but I absolutely love it and would highly recommend it.

Here's a pic of it in my Jeep. You can't see the rear cupholder, but it's there:

Beer30, I like that one, thanks for the link.
@Firechicken: I don't have a problem with Tuffy, just this product, and I really have no means to have any gripes about it, except for the look:

make a nice arm rest for rear passengers if it had some padding on it. kinda pricey but personally i'm kinda neutral on the looks-doesn't jump out and say buy me, but not butt ugly and does use some other wise useless, waisted space.
like the rear lockbox, but need that space for shopping once a week(fold up seat and 'fill er up') so not sure if it would work or not.
i do have the consol w/2 cup holders and that with glove box holds what i bring along-just miss lockable storage for tools, etc

I have a center console out of a '99 TJ. It's tan, has a lockable middle (I don't have the key) and two cup holders in the rear. With my kids it's easier just to not have anything between the seats so they can climb through the middle to get to the back.

Let me know if you're interested.

What color is your interior? Mine is agate (almost black) I am in the same boat. There are usually several TJ full consoles on Ebay but they seem to be tan.

Yeah, I've got a tan interior, I'll scout Ebay out, but I'm going to buy a half console from PadreC.
