Here is the link to the one I built. I have pictures of the frame there. I made mine so I didn't have to cut anything in the truck up and I can go back to stock of I want to without any problems. If you have any questions, I'll try to answer then but that was my first time doing something like that. Get some cardboard and just try different shapes and such, good way to start.

I'm in the process of building mine atm, but its on hold til I get my rear end back together. It will be glassed eventually. Still some rough edges then need some polishing

I hate subs in the console, especially if you have an ext cab.

Built mine out of mdf. Made it so I could use the stock armrest as a cover. Strong as hell. Was gonna fiberglass it, but that didnt work out so I rhino lined it reall good. Like it so far. Love the storage space. Space for my ipod is great. Biggest flaw so far is the cupholders, still have to figure out a better solution for that.

It's not anywhere close to the design I came up with -
I didn't have as much room for cup holders as I thought and I didn't
make the space for the t/c shifter.

It's still a work in progress

It looks alot similar in design to Thefigus's, but i have a shifter where the cup holders are and the front part on mine flares out
