Center Console

I JUST bought a 2004 TJ Rocky Mt. Edition. It did not come with a center console and I want to install one. The problem is there are cup holders in the front and I do not know which console will fit my jeep... I am looking at this tuffy box Tuffy 044-01 - Tuffy Series II Console for 97-04 Jeep Wrangler TJ with front factory half console - Quadratec . Will this one fit in my jeep even though I have the front cup holders? Is there a stock console I can buy? If so, where? Thanks!

I'm sure you can find a stock replacement on craigslist or ebay. Otherwise this is a great opportunity to get yourself some real security with an aftermarket. They make ones that just have the back portion. Check Quadratec.com or 4wd.com .

Don't waste your money on a OEM console. they suck.

I have a grey one if you want to buy it.

Did I mention they suck?

I bought the Tuffy full console (has new, much improved cup holders) from 4x4groupbuy.com (best price you'll find) I got the one with the provisions for a sub in the console as my OEM console had a sub in it. It was a PITA to install, but more than worth it once installed.

Quite a few of the Jeeps I've looked at had the lock broken on their OEM console. It looks like it takes longer to open the door and lean in than it does to open the OEM console when it's locked.

That being said, it sounds like we have similar setups: I little half-console around the shifter, with a cupholder, right?
I was also wondering how to go about getting in a nice big secure console, and wondering if that cupholder / shifter surround thing will need to get yanked out.

You can do 1 of two options. In Theory you can get the Tuffy rear section, and don't need to remove the OEM front section.

OR you can get the tuffy full length setup (so the entire center will be metal and match) and you get new cupholders...which IMO hold cups much better than the OEM setup. (I can now take turns w/o holding the edge of my cups.)

Yeah, replace the whole thing. I still have the factory setup and it's cheap plastic that I could easily pry open. Also mrcarcrazy is right.. water bottles frequently go flying into the floorboard (and juuuust out of reach for the rest of the trip) when I make a turn out onto the highway at a little bit of a higher speed. You can even get Tuffy ones that'll hold your cd player also.. they are neat.

Funny, in my 06, I never have had any trouble with the cup holders. Best I think I've ever had in fact. They hold the big bottle of Aquafina, and a travel mug very well.
