74 cj4 center console

My 74 cj5 is in need of a center console. It has the storage under the passenger seat which makes it a really odd shape. I haven't seen one made for it and have to assume like many things for 72-75 there isn't one available and I will have to make one. I have a "bazooka tube" speaker laying around and I thought about building a console around it out of wood. My jeep is a cruiser and in no way used for off road but I'm still afraid it wouldn't last long. Does anyone have any ideas or know of anyone that offers one??? Thanks!

I used two 50 caliber ammo cans welded together to make a center console.

I use an old wooden military ammo box, and another cool little metal box I had around as my console and glove box.I haven't built my dash yet, don't have a tail gate or doors so it was hard for me to find a way to store things . I have a 74 as well. I used a peice of wood I cut and put it in th two back seat holders(look like closet rod brackets) and the two font seats to hold the ammo box in. The other box is stuffed under a seat for now. I would like to find a truck tool box that will come close to fitting it as I currently use my back seat area and bed for zilch.(except my ammo box but a tool box can replace that) good luck, let us know what you get worked out.

I have a Tuffy box between the seats on my '75. It's just a box, so it's not like they are shaped specifically for any particular vehicle. If the space is there for one, it wil fit. I had to make a front mounting bracket out of some scrap steel, but that only took a few minutes to do.

I'm considering a smittybilt console but it would require modification to fit cuz as I said it has the storage compartment under passenger seat so I would have to trim about 4 inches off of the passenger side bottom to make it fit but I don't know if the storage compartment goes all the way to the bottom if so if be cutting into the storage compartment if that makes sense.

Why not just have the console sit on top of the toolbox that's under the passenger seat and make a mounting bracket that goes from the bottom of the console to the floor that's on the drivers side?

That storage compartment is really referred to as a toolbox.
