Smittybilt security console

hey there, i was looking into getting smittybilts stereo security console

31811 - Smittybilt Stereo Security Floor Console for 76-95 Jeep® CJ-5, CJ-7, Scrambler & Wrangler YJ - Quadratec

but didnt know if anyone had thoughts on this compared to others. also i have tuner fx seats and didnt know if it would fit so if someone could let me know how far off the floor it sits that would be great

I have that exact one and I put my CB in the lockable part. I would measure the distance between the seats to see if it will fit. The console sits on the little hump behind the shiters and has feet at the rear that are about 4" high.

I will tell you that you might want to get the 6" extensions for the seat belt buckles or you will hate life when you buckle and unbuckle the seat belts as you have to stuff your hand down between the seat and console.

Can't compare it to any others, sorry.

I have a bestop right now. My cup holders are at the same level as the bin that is covered by the arm rest i.e. the arm rest itself is the only part that is a different height on the console. So when I put a drink in it, the drink is in the way of shifting.

This looks like the cup holders are much lower. Can you actually store drinks in this thing?

I've been tossing around the idea of the Smittybilt security w/o the stero set up but it just seems to wide. I've seen a few and it looks like it is pushing the seats up. I wonder if it would be hard to open because of how tight it is in there.

I'd also like to hear some feed back from YJ owners who have one installed.

The closes option I've come across is the Tuffy which is 8" wide and looks like it would fit well but the price is way up there.

I have one, the cup holder SUCKS in a major way, any drink i put there will spill, I think if you grind some out, then insert the rubber from a 99ish S-10 cup holder, it would work well, and as soon as I find one out at Pick&Pull ill be trying it, but until then, i suffer.

At my smallest point Its 6" wide, that's about 12" above the bump that it would rest on, I'm starting to think that it won't work, also the shifter housing is kind of big so the cup holders may hit

Seems like a quality box though, i may try it out and just send it back if it really won't work haha
