    The aft compartment is for glasses, that one is easy for me to use. The forward compartment looks like it might be for a garage door opener? Well I have a carport, no garage door to worry about.

    Any good accessories to fit in here or other creative uses?

    kinda a good place to keep your registration, so you get it outta there, instead of reaching over to the glove box. just a thought.

    never know when you will need it.

    carjacker

    not likely youll need it but when you do it will save your ass

    Good spot for Juicy Fruit. or a spare can can of Copenhagen. Or an emergency $20. Or a handful of condoms. Or a few dime bags. You could stick all kinds of shit up there.

    Hope you carry it when not in your truck. I'd hate for you to arm a car thief with a quality .45. ;)

    Get one of those oxygen masks like they have in the overhead compartments of planes, then rig up a button to open the door so the mask drops. Get a passenger you like to pick on to ride with you. Pick a random moment to scream, "OH GOD!!" and then press the button.
