Tuffy center console no longer fits

So I put in some new Corbeau Baja RS seats this weekend and now my 8" Tuffy center stereo console no longer fits. I had talked to a guy with a Scrambler who had these exact seats and that exact size console and no fitment issues. I assumed mine should be very similar so I went for it. Well I only have 6 3/4" in between my seats now. I tried to squish the console in but it just wasnt going to happen.

I love my Tuffy console. It's one of my favorite mods. I'm not sure what to do now. If I got the 6.5" Tuffy w/ stereo it's still 8" where the stereo portion is and it wouldn't fit by my measurements. I could get the non stereo 6.5" but then where would I put my stereo? The stock location is a no go, where I live it would be stolen tonight.

I've heard mixed reviews on the Tuffy overhead console?

What are some suggestions? Anyone had similar issues?

Maybe I can help.... Sell me your Tuffy console and you won't have to fit it in there!

J/K, it sucks it wont go back in, hopefully this will help someone else from learning the hard way.

But seriously, if you have to sell, PM me!

You can weld some extension brackets on the passenger seat like I did. I was able to move the seat over about an inch and a half. I only did the passenger side because the driver seat is stationary. The console is is only hitting the driver side.

Jeep43 good idea. I will take a look and see if I have any room to move the seats with a little modification.

If I do end up selling it I'll let you all know.

I've gotta have tunes. Plus it holds my ipod, shades, garage door opener, drinks, etc etc.

I got out the tape measure this afternoon and there isn't any room to move the seats so I think I will have to come up with something different.

Has anyone used the single bin Tuffy overhead console? I hear a lot of head bashing goes on with the double bin version. Any input on this console would be great as they are 10% off right now.
