Tuffy Security Console

Got the Tuffy in, and I like it. Got an awesome deal on it. The guy I got it from traded his jeep in the cash for clunkers sale. Sad part is the jeep also had the Bushwacker fender flares and a gas tank skid but they thought they wouldn't get the CFC deal before the money ran out so they weren't removed. Anyway, here's some pics after I threw it in. Either a CB or Ham radio will go in the radio box.

4 bolts to remove the factory console, 6 to install the new one. Super easy and about 30 minutes.

Will a government model 1911 fit in the radio compartment. I need something I can lock up my firearm in. That looks like a good place to store things that you only need to hide once in awhile but can't because the console is full of crap you store all the time.

+1. I'm terribly curious. I hate not having a firearm in my car, and I don't trust my OEM console...color me crazy.

How big is the main compartment? I was looking @ the Tuffy with Sub enclosure. but want to make sure I can carry what I'm wanting to store in there...

A 1911, few mags, hold up mask...did I say that out loud? My P-95 wil go in the big compartment. There is a lot of room in there. The main compartment is big but does have a slope on the right side from fron to back for the e-brake underneath. There is a small tray that hangs inside on the back, the rest goes to the floor. I'll snap a pic tonight inside both compartments. oh, I didn't mention the price I got this for...$100.00 bucks. hate the fact that the guys TJ ended up in Cash for Clunkers, but his loss, my gain.

Here's some interior shots. Little dark, done with cell phone. First is the stereo compartment. About 12" deep, 12" long, 4" wide. A lot of room.



Main compartment. About 14" deep, 4" wide to floor in drivers side with a slope on the passenger side. A lot of room which would leave just the slope side with the sub installed. I'm going to see if I can find a small sub to mount in there somehow and not loose too much space. I don't need my music real loud, just want a little base for my AC/DC.

Thanks for the info. I just had to remove my factory console today and unplug the factory sub. I think it blew, it was driving me crazy with the rattle. It sounds better now. I want a tuffy console but I wasn't sure if I wanted to get the cup holders or the stereo compartment.

It is king of Tuffy without the cup holders (as I've always got a glass of ice tea with me) but I'll figure out a way to mount a bracket somewhere. I really like it, glad I found the deal.
