Ive been looking at this exact option as well. Very disappointed that this truck comes with so much storage with no locking storage doors.

That vault is pretty cool! I wonder how secure it actually is....

Briefly considered something like that, but find it easier to have my .45 on my person, in the glovebox, or wedged inbetween the seat/console. Not sure how the latter will work out with the truck once I have it.
God bless america... that's awesome. we would goto jail for that here!

I did not miss your posting as the others did. That pricing is a joke. My take on it is second grade.

Math is taught in second grade using a head and a pencil, not a calculator. Then you have to look at the results and see if it makes "common sense".

That math makes "nonsense".

Wondering if anyone has installed these before and/or were thinking about doing so? If so, curious to know how easy-to-install and how secure the product is. Any other considerations ?

Dodge Ram 1500 Full Floor Console
Looks like a drop-in unit and they claim 10-minute installation. Unclear how it is attached to the plastic console but it looks like simple tamperproof screws which would be easy to rip out. Thieves would just take the whole unit.

Mopar offers a few locking storage accessories such as the RamBox, Under Floor Storage Lock, and Glovebox Lock. These would discourage the unprepared thief, and the under floor boxes are hidden under the floor mat.

My Jeep CJ had several locking compartments that were bolted to the metal body (I had to drill holes). They were very secure although the vehicle itself was easy to break into. Something similar could be mounted in the bed of the pickup. Truck Vault is one example.

I ordered my truck with the front bench seat. While checking out the interior of trucks they had on the lot, I test fit my .45 in the pull out drawer below the touch screen. It fits in there beautifully!

Figures....that's initially what I wanted to order, but the wife decided she liked the buckets and console "for all the storage".

Maybe it's Common Core math.

I have it installed at present.

It is very durable and thick guage. The combo lock is decent.

Install is a breeze. You slide it in, you open it, you use a wrench on four bolts that burrow holes into the plastic console. You'll never get it out without a crowbar and you'd destroy the console in the process. (Break in / forced entry)


The door is fairly small. You're not going to store a full size 1911 in there for quick access. A compact .380 auto or j-frame .38 will draw out of there cleanly.

Any idea if it is big enough to hold an iPad?
