    Companies like LMC and Chevy Duty sell the later style consoles. They are the same, but they have cup holders (round) instead of the seat belt holders that the '69 - '72 consoles had. Otherwise, used ones come up for sale pretty often.

    LMC Truck shows an aftermarket console for $169.95.
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://http/www.lmctruck.com>http://http/www.lmctruck.com</A>. If the link didn't work, sorry. I was trying to do it from memory. You can call to request a catalog 1-800-222-5664. The console part # is 38-6921.

    Hope this helps,

    If you don't have to stay stock you can go with something like the Tuffy products. This is what I am going to go with. That way during the summer when the top is off I don't have to worry about losing my stuff to someone else's sticky fingers.

    See Ya,

    The ones from LMC aren't really the later style console. They're a look-alike that is pretty close, but not exact. My console was mostly destroyed when I bought my Blazer and I bought a console off of eBay that was from a '76 Blazer. The stuff on that console that was good was the stuff that was broken on mine, so I Frankensteined-together one good '76 console for my '72. The consoles for the Gen1 and Gen2 are the same, except for the Gen1 console has recesses for the seat belt buckles and an ash tray, while the Gen2 console has cup holders and a recess for a pack of cigarettes.

    FWIW, I think Bill O'Grady at Vintage Chevy has a couple of good consoles of either type.

    I'm interested in your blue console as well - How much? Any pictures?
     
  11. I have the Tuffy Stereo Security console. It is perfect if you drive around alot with your top off. (I plan to this summer.) It is lockable and you mount your CD player in the console. I think the only way to get into that thing would be with a 10 foot crowbar or a torch. I ran all the wires outside of the vehicle to hide all the wiring and I kept the stock radio in the dash to deter thieves.

    I recommend it to any Blazer owner. I also plan on getting there 6x9 security boxes that enclose the entire speaker. I then plan to bolt it to my Blazer.
