Default I need ideas for more storage space between manual shifter and seats.....

I have a 2010 Ranger regular cab XL with manual tranny w/reverse. What can I use between shifter and seats on that area for storage and stuff kind of like more cup holders to hold stuff, etc... I was thinking of building me a small console out of wood and having it carpeted at an upholstery shop.... I am trying to keep costs down... Do any fords have anything that is of the same shape for storage??

exploder full center console is the way to go, if you have buckets, if not then get some! I just put one in my truck, I had the short console. So far i find it very fuctional.

I would go with an Explorer center console as well, You will have to get bucket seats but it gives your truck more beefieness as well, Click this link and you can see my setup:

EDIT: And its very cheap sometimes, I got mine at Pull-A-Part for $15.00, So after I bought Krylon Fusion to paint it, I only had $20.00 and some time into it!

For more storage space I'd also consider adding an overhead console... I just put one in my 2010 b4000 and it's two compartments but considering how limited storage is in my truck it's a nice difference.
