installing center console?

So i was given a center console as a gift but i have to idea how to mount it in my 2000 sport. Would i be safe just tapping and bolting it to the tub or are there certain areas i should be drilling?

There are I think 4 stock holes. That's for a stock console though. Is that what you have?

Can you drill the console to match up with
any of the factory holes?

That's strange. Though they all had them.
What's there, carpet?

for what it is worth-as said there are 4 mounting bolts on the factory console. 2 very close together /side by side in the rear just behind the front seat. One almost centered next to the e-brake handle-and one under the shifter boot.
I would THINK that those areas would be safe on any TJ to drill and mount your after market console.

Who's after market console is it? If it is Tuffy you can probably find a PDF of the installation instructions on Quadratec's website.
