While it is not quite as fancy as Big_Greek's, it does the job, and I am happy so far.

This is a Havis console in a 2014. I have a Uniden 536, Yaesu ft-8800, CS-800 DMR UHF radio. Cup holders, USB port to the stock radio, plus two USB charging ports and 2 cig lighter sockets. And swivel arm rest. A small switch controls the amber hide-a-ways in the headlights and the rear stock stop/backup flash.

Two way radio bodies are in the trunk, tied to one of the 30 amp relays triggered by ignition on. I have three antennas, using the holes that were already there. Not exactly optimal placement, but it was better than drilling new ones.

I have added the microphone holders since this photo was taken.

I still need to make a few tweaks, but its working well.
