Center Console Question

I have a 97 TJ and I just pulled the center console up and out. Is there anything that is supposed to be supporting it to the body ie. a bolt or something, or is that just how it is.

Not sure about 97's, but my 2003 is fastened to the floor with 3 bolts. Two in the back and one in the front. The bolts are located under the cupholders in both the front and back. I can't imagine that it's supposed to just sit there with no anchors.

center console

I don't know if my '05 has any bolts but every time I put it in reverse, it doesn't feel like anything is holding it.

Well there are no bolts in the back cup holders. It is separate from the cup holder.

Is it a 5 speed and does it have a lift? Sometimes lifts...especially body lifts result in the shift linkage moving back just enough that the shifter hits the console edge/shift boot when going into 2nd, 4th, and reverse and in order to fix it, the console must be shifted back a little bit and bolted down using new holes. Perhaps bolting it back down was a step that was skipped.
