Question Tuffy Overhead Console

I just installed my new Tuffy Overhead console, and I have a cb that I am trying to put in.
The cb came with the standard bracket to mount it, but it doesn't work with the Tuffy slide out drawer.
For the life of me I haven't been able to figure out how to get the cb to mount in the drawer and the drawer still function properly by sliding up and down in the console.
Has anyone had this issue? If so, do you have any suggestions?
Maybe a cb that worked well with the console? A bracket that fits it, etc...

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have the overhead console but have not installed it.

How about mod'g the bracket, mount it on the bottom of the CB and to get the CB to sit as low as possible in the mount, redrill the holes in the bracket to add a set of holes and mount the bracket as close to teh CB as possible.

Keep the CB/Bracket as close to the cover as possible.

Later,

Do it right the first time !

I had the same problem. You dont need to use the mounting bracket.

What I did was to mount it directly to the tray. I carefully drilled new holes to line up with the CB mounting holes. Then at a hardware store I got (countersink) screws that match the threads on the mounting holes in the CB and a bunch of washers to act as spacers. Finally, I mounted the CB with two mounting screws each side. It worked great. You have to use countersink screws because there is little room for clearance. It is easy - just be careful to line up the screws in the correct spot and to make sure the CB is far enough back in the tray to clear the front of the console. You may also have to trim away part of the back of the tray if you have a big CB like I do.
