Tuffy Console Insert in 2004 console?

I looked at a tuffy console insert for the TJ today. The website says it fits to 2000. It appears to be a simple dropin for my 2004 full console if I remove the speaker. Anyone tried this fit yet. I've emailed Tuffy but was hoping someone here has actually done it. I measured and compared and the insert looks like a proper fit.

I'll be interested to hear back from them on that. I have not bought one yet due to what the site says it will fit.

the lids on the stock console are still used. and the lid changed in 2000 or 2001. therefore the answer is probably not.

I'll buy it and do an article

If noone can say one way or the other I'll buy it and do an article. No doubt the speaker comes out. I looked at the one designed for the later
tj's and with the speaker compartment the storage space is very limited.

The price is a real difference and capacity of the insert is big.

I'll check the tops out. It would mean maybe devising a new top pad. Thanks, I'll track down a early Jeep and compare the consoles.

There was a similar thread a while back and the answer is no it will not fit. It is also not likely that there will be an insert for the late models because of the design of the latch.

I emailed tuffy and they said they don't make one for later year TJs and probably won't be making one. I asked if it was just the lid and they said probably, they can't see any other differences either. The lid screws on with 2 phillips on the inside hinge) Definately do a write up b/c I'm curious as well. As for the speaker, yes it comes out, yesterday in the electronics forum someone posted good pics on taking that out (replacing factory sub thread)

I'll pick it up and do an install. I'm an old geezer so the woofer is gone! I took accurate measurements and the insert looks like an easy fit. I suspect the early and later TJ console are the same size with a lid change. The insert lid looks like a normal Tuffy lid with no top pad. The biggest question mark is the installation of the lid to the insert. It comes seperate unlike the completed Console boxes. Build thread to follow.

I'm just too cheap to not try and I want to leave my doors unlocked because a punk with a knife can do more damage than I can afford to a soft top going after my coffee change. Next payday will be a locking glovebox then an alarm. Almost makes a Canadian wish he lived in Texas and could actually carry and use a Colt.

Anyone who has installed the insert please speakup. Because I'm trying something different the seats come out to give me lots of room. The 2004 console splits ahead of console box so I will leave the front shift cover in place. Any other pointers?

you can get a half console that works by maintaining the original front portion where the shifter and 4wd lever is located. I just put the full console version in last weekend, they have a great product ......I highly recommend their stuff, I have their glovebox too ...another great product
