Your explanation is good and I think that we are talking about the same thing. Mine is a factory console with the contoured base. Here is a picture of mine (at least the best one I have right now... you can see the front of it under the blanket. I can get some more pictures tomorrow if you think it would be helpful.)
I am surprised that it doesn't fit because I thought the tubs were same between '78 and '81 (minus the different roll bars). Either way, I hope that you are able to get it mounted up the way you want. I know mine is pretty handy and I like the lower profile because it makes it easier for people to climb in the back.
