help me find a new console!!!

Hey can anyone suggest a good solid security console that will mount my stereo receiver in it? Here's my issues: I have seat sliders installed on both front seats so that makes my seats sit up another 1". With the console that came with my jeep the seat belts are too snug against this console that measure 10" wide. so when i flip my seats fwd you can imagine what a pain it is to find my seat belts. With this console id of course like a full size cup holder and a solid lock mechanism with good style and armrest.
I've thought about seat belt extenders and removing the plastic shield around the belts, but as a last resort i guess! Thanks!

Tuffy makes a good one. it has some straps to hold the seat belts up so they don't lay on the floor when you take them off.

x2 on the tuffy. my reciever actually kinda pinches right between my seat and the console so its easy to just push the tab in and get it to click. WHen you flip your seats forward the worse thing that happens is they slide back a little, but the strap should hold them up still....

Tuffet makes (or made ) the deluxe stereo console in two widths 10" and 8" so the 8 definitly works better in a CJ. If not broken, the plastic housing of the inner belts ( female side) will keep the belt up and in position. It's important not to let it rotate as when the seat is returned back from tne folded position, it bends or breaks the plastic. A metal insert can be made to side in as a stiffener

I concur on the Tuffy. I currently have the 8" wide installed on my '77. Used to have a 10" installed (and it is currently for sale!! $150 you pay the shipping) but I found that it was a little bit of a tight fit. Both front seats just touched the console, which wasn't a problem. The problem was my a$$ was a little too wide for the set up. Caused me to sit a little off center on the seat and that was not comfortable/stable.

If you are "normal size" a 10" is great. If anyone has ever referred to you as 'Husky", "Robust" or "Thick" then go with the 8".

I found the 10 too wide for the seats and belts and folding them... Not so much a wide rear end, but I guess that would interfere too
