tray lip fits on top at front by usb outlet and wedges against the 2 back convex corners on console. can probably be modified a bit for a better fit didn't want to take chance of it free-falling by trimming back corners
is it pretty? no but it serves my purpose to quick find odds n ends, loose change, keys, cards, etc

I believe Cary wanted to see pix of it installed in your truck. And if thats not what he meant, thats what Id like to see please.

This company sells several inserts and trays on amazon for various trucks, except Colorado... Salex Organizers . I emailed them and asked why no Colorado, they quickly responded and asked for dimensions, saying maybe one of their others would fit. I sent them the roughly 5x9 dimensions I found in another topic here.

Maybe they will make one for Colorado if they get bunch requests from us, send them an email ... sales@salexorganizers.com Personally I would like a tray at the top since it is so deep. They also have organizer grids that go down into the bottom for the other trucks.

So, I got the Console Insert I ordered off of Amazon a couple of weeks ago. Direct form China. . hate that, but the best I could find in size and function.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...A2MWQ9ORF3M29M

Note: This looks like the same one for about $2.50 less and from the same vendor:
https://www.amazon.com/Interior-Seco.../dp/B0119LAFOY
Same one for even less -- - -
https://www.amazon.com/Armrest-Secon.../dp/B01A9OIBO8

It is as expected and fits well inside the console cavity. It also has a notch right where the USB needs to go. So all in all, a winner in my book.

I can either use it as is, or mod it. I am thinking of making a way to hang it from the lip of the console or add some rubber strips on the side to wedge it in place so it sits near the top of the console cavity.

Here are 3 initial pics. .. .

PS..... Im thinking a piece of plexiglass with the hole cut out so it can be fit into the plexi as it rests on the top lip.....just thinking out loud.

It will go all the way down to the bottom of the console. In the picture, I just have it sitting on some maps and things in the console to give an idea.

What about a couple thin pieces of plastic stuck with double side tape inside the console for the tray to rest on, think that would hold?
Or some velcro around the edges......

Like minds. . . . Going to try that, but I'm also thinking of putting some fairly stiff rubber self adhesive strips on the tray itself and see if it will "wedge" in place.
That way, nothing sticking to the inside of the console to hinder in/out of items.

I'll be trying some things tomorrow. I like the size. . . not too big and still will hold some small items, coins, USB sticks, etc.

Here's what I'm trying so far. Thick squares of stiff rubber foam on the sides of each tray corner. Seems to work pretty well for now, but I'm going to try 4 of those silicone rubber "bumper" type feet that they sell at home supply and hardware stores.

The inner sides of the console cavity taper down towards the bottom. So, wedging the tray in place will get tighter as you push it down. I want to pop the tray out to get at things underneath without too much effort, but still hold the tray in place.

I think mine got here in about 12 days. The tracking number they supply is useless and showed delivery in about a month. So 12 days wasn't too bad.
