Lock Box Options

I have a center console in my D90, but unfortunately, it does not have a lock. I need to be able to store things sometimes (camera, wallet, etc.), and the compartment under my passenger seat is not large enough). So I'm considering 3 options:

1. Replace the current console with a lockable console. (an expensive and wasteful option, as there's nothing wrong with the current one)

2. Add a lock to the current console. (it probably won't work all that well, and probably won't look great either)

3. Get some kind of metal ammo box or lock box, and bolt it down in the rear compartment on the bench, right behind the passenger's seat.

Does anyone have any thoughts, or know of another good option that I haven't yet considered? Thanks!!

I would sell your current cubby and buy a tuffy center console. It will give you a nice secure area to store study and they hold a lot can even add a radio if you want.

If you need more after that they also make one that sits in the bed or someone on here make some nice wheel well boxes

I saw someone with a knock off tuffy for like 1/3 the money but I don't remember where. A tuffy to me says "break in and steal my stuff" whereas the under seat storage no one knows about and is lockable.

Tuffy box. All the way. The padded armrest alone is worth it.
