Default Center Console Cooler?

So this idea came to me the other day and I was wondering if anyone else has tried it... I'm thinking about drilling a hole in the bottom of the center console to make it into a cooler. It holds over a 12 pack plus ice but I need a way to drain it. Has anyone tried this or tried drilling a hole in the bottom and adding a drain plug?

It would be cool but I normally take a cooler with me on the rare occasion I can't pull over to get a drink or hang out with a cooler in the truck bed. If you do make it into a cooler make sure to share your experience with everyone here. Cool!

Interesting idea. I'd put in a hose fitting you can hook a hose to and drain to the outside of the truck.

my only problem is that water will always follow the path of least resistance, so if you don't have a tube or something diverting the water out of the console out under the truck, simply popping open a plug is gonna cause that water to seep under the console and onto the carpet...sure most will go out the hole under the truck, you just want to make sure that ALL goes out under the truck.

Does that make sense??

I just use the 2 floor coolers in the back or I bring a real cooler.
