    Just wanted to share a great way to organize the lids of second gen Tacoma center consoles. The product is called Grid-It, and it's a multi-use organizer with endless possibilities.

    [​IMG]

    There are several randomly criss-crossed elastic bands with rubber grippers that hold anything you can think to shove into them.

    [​IMG]

    It comes in many sizes, but the one that fits perfectly in our center consoles is the Grid-It CPG5BK and is $10. The dimensions are roughly 5"x10", and it's almost a perfect fit.

    [​IMG]

    It comes with the added bonus of a little zipper pouch on the back side. I cut that off completely, and just used some heavy duty adhesive backed velcro to hold it in place.

    [​IMG]

    You have to cut away 2 notches about 1cm into the edge of the panel and bend them away to clear the lid hinges, and use a lighter to sear up the frays, but otherwise it closes and is a great fit.

    [​IMG]

    Install velcro on the underside of the lid, and there's no drilling necessary! I have been offroad with it yet multiple times, bumping the truck around violently, and nothing budged.

    I'm super happy I was able to find such a perfect use for this product. Here it is installed with the Salex Organizer in, and I can confirm that it fits great with room to spare. I can even fit a C Cell Flashlight, and a Otter Box Pursuits 20 in between the two.
