    Car Carry in Chevy Tahoe

    I found a slick place to stow my pistol in my car when not carrying it. I noticed that the outside dimensions of the center console in my Chevy Tahoe were bigger that the various compartments required. This meant that there was likely empty space available inside the console. After taking it apart and checking it over, I discovered that the cup holder section at the front of the console (in front of the large compartment with the lid) just pops out with a little effort. Below the cup holder is a nice space that is perfect for stowing my pistol. It is easy to reach while driving and not likely to be discovered by anyone breaking into the vehicle, or by kids. Thought I would pass along the info.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Got any pics?

    I did say "not likely", not "won't".

    I have been driving this vehicle for 3 years and never knew the cup holder was removable. It has never come loose on its own, and doesn't look removable. Nothing is for sure, but its better hidden and more accessible than any other spot I have found.

    I've got a 99. I'll have to give it a look for when I must leave it in the car.

    Your 99 has the spot under the cupholder, as well as a slide out drawer under the rear cupholders, down near the floor. It's holds a J frame S&W or a Kahr P40 and a spare mag quite nicely.
    I'll take a .45 and a large side of JHPs, please.

    Try the space with the jack in the rear (driver's side) if you have to squirrel it away. Still, kid's and thieves will get into anything you figure they won't.

    Here are some pics for you gunporn-oholics

    The first three pics show the cupholder being removed.







    Just grab the post between the two holders and pull up. Takes about 10 lbs of force. The fourth shows my pistol out of its case to give a perspective of the size of the compartment.



    The last pic shows that there is even more storage room in front of the compartment that I chose to use.



    Not as easy to reach while driving, but not a bad squirrel hole for other stuff.

    Apparently the 2000 is quite different from the 99. I have a bench front seat and the cupholder comes out of the dash to the right of the stereo and climate controls. I'll still be checking, though, to see if there is any kind of room in that area.

    I know from buying parts that there was a big design change going into 2000. I don't know how long they kept this interior style, I haven't look at any newer ones lately.
