Secret compartment under the drink holders

In the center console, remove the 2 sets of drink holders and there is a flat tray that lifts right out revealing yet another compartment.
I thought this was too kool. A good spot for the radar detector, GPS, handgun or whatever.
Here is the link on Youtube:

The only way I found this was reading about it on a forum yesterday. It's a very cool hiding spot. I guess I should not have shown it to the wife! LOL

Guess it isn't a "secret" compartment anymore.

It's not so obvious when you've never lifted the cup holders out! ROFL C'mon Shane cut me a break, I've only had my truck 3 weeks.

Hand guns don't fit into that space very well.

I put some of the various charger cords that I don't use very often, but that I want in truck for when I do need them.

I've also stashed Jerky, granola bars etc that I don't want my kids to eat up.

Too many folks know about that compartment for me really keep anything of any value

Don't tell anyone uhmkay?

It's our secret. Sorry, been too busy catching up on work and ATV'n. I wash her and ride, discover all the other stuff as needed. Snub nose 9mm fits right nice.
God Bless and laughed when I called it the secret compartment. BOO!
Happy Halloween!

it's in the owner's manual, IIRC... not too secret

there are two "giant" sized cupholders down there. I used it for that once when I accidentally ordered the biggest drink KFC had to offer. it is like half a gallon! fit nicely in the giant-sized cupholders

You must have gotten an aftermarket JC Whitney part or something, there ain't no **** on it.

It is a great place to put your candy in though on long trips because the A/C runs around it and appears to keep it a bit cooler.

I like my gun in the door though, where I barely have to move a muscle to get it.

Yours must be upside down.

Now curiosity made me go outside and look. There is a, what I call, a tab to grab onto.

When you said **** I immediately think of a round **** like on a cabinet or something. Either way I guess I didn't pay enough attention to it when I have used it.

I guess the OP was refering to the Large console with the quad cup holders. I have the other version which has a locking compartment under the flip down console. The dealer never pointed it out and I discovered it a couple of weeks after I got the truck. I found it very useful for stowing my gun while traveling through the "libral" States" like MD,NJ,NY ect.
