    Default Swapping consoles?

    I have one of the fold up center consoles and I was wondering If it was possible to take out that middle seat and put in the full length center console.

    I noticed on my bosses 02 GMC it doesn't appear to be part of the dash, and the center seat isn't part of either side bucket seat so I'm assuming They're interchangeable, I just want some assurance before I go wasting time and money digging through junk yards.

    I use the arm rest quite a bit, I can live without it though.. Do you have a picture of how much room it has inside it?

    like inside/under the arm rest part that lifts up. My boss has a sub box inside his console so I've never seen inside one.
