What size is yours? I picked up the 6.5" one and it's just extremely small compared to the ammo can. Plus I can't really use the arm rest unless I lean really far back. I'll see if I can get used to it.

I've got the 10" Tuffy center console, but I hear the 8" works a bit better in a CJ for seat and seat belt clearance.

^^What about fading/paint rubbing off? All it takes is an armorall wipe and mine looks just as good...

Or maybe some of that black trim dye stuff they sell at Autyzone

It is attached to the windshield frame with three L shaped brackets. Drilled into the frame, attached them then drilled into the bar and attached the bar to the windshield.

Ahhh, yeah that'll do it. I guess paint is so inexpensive you could easily put another coat on if it faded bad

Made this console out of some 1/2" birch wood, a spare piece of black leather and some parts off of an old console I had and then had a buddy spray it with Line-X.

Nice, I am finishing up my ammo can console, all I have to do is weld the hinge on it. I'm thinking I am going to get mine Line-x'd when it is complete.

Is yours actual Line-X or is just the rattle can type? It looks pretty shiny

It's Line-X with what they call XTRA painted on after. It keeps it from fading and makes it real easy to clean!
