The bottom fixed compartment can be used for smaller bags or gear while the top or bigger section can store larger equipment. The top part of the side door cabinet typically comes with an adjustable shelf that can be moved up or down or can be completely removed.

The weapons locker is secured by a push button combo lock which is also offered with a key override, a remote control entry or a hidden switch to access the box. A divider system is a good way to separate your weapons  and keep them organized. You may want to use gun foam to keep your weapons from sliding during transit. You could also cut out and secure storage for added ammo, magazines, grenades, and so on. If the need arises, a command board could be added under the weapons locker and then you have a command center. Access to the spare tire would be eliminated by this option.

Your vendor should be aware of these changes, but it is always a good idea to confirm with them the make, model and year of the vehicle you want to install the console in.
