Tuffy Stereo Console

I went out to install one today and while doing so, I noticed that the drivers seat sits closer to the middle than the passengers seat. Something not sitting right will bother me for a long time, so if anyone has pictures or suggestions as to how they installed theirs so it didn't sit crooked or off-center that would be great. Thanks.


OH WAIT. WHAT?

We just lined mine up by eye.
The back feet butt up to the "shelf"
We centered the console and socked down the front nut loosely just for a pivot.
We lined the backside up so that it opens without touching the sides of the seat.

Seats=Bestop Trailmax
Tuffy=8" w/no radio

There's not a lot of wiggle room there w/my setup.

BTW - an AR center cap makes a great ashtray

Here's another shot of the feet from the back.
You can see in the picture that mine looks off-center.
Line it up to the seats not the driveshaft hump.
Looking good means jack if it doesn't work.
Make it work.

That's precisely how mine ended up lining up. It constantly looks off due to the offset so I couldn't determine how to bolt it down, as I'm running stock seats and the drivers seat bulges out more than the passengers seat (14 years of use will do that, I guess) and pushes it to the side so it looks crooked.

Thanks for the pictures, I'm gonna get around to installing it tomorrow since it's dark and rainy now.

sounds like your Qs answered, but just to add, mine was off, too. And since it is the narrow 6.5" model, it did'nt fit the back shelf at all after I centered it. So I added a spacer under one foot for it to sit level... and after bolting it all down, its seems snug enough. All I have are tools and junk behind the seats anyway, so I don't care what it looks like back there!.

We marked where the feet sat with the front bolt in.
We also used a punch through the rear holes.
Then we measured where the holes are on the box in relation to the feet.
The punch marks were kinda hard to see so the measurements helped.
We drilled with the box out of the way because one of the holes is on the angled side of the driveshaft hump.
We built up some black RTV under the washers and only tightened the flat sitting side completely.
I'll tighten the angled one completely soon now that the RTV should be set.

Good luck and have fun!

Take the seats out. Center the console and put the seats back in and bolt them back in but pull them as far away from the console as possible when tightening the bolts back in. I have the 10 inch console it doesnt even let paper slide between the console and seat.
