Tuffy Stereo Console vs. non Stereo Console

I'm trying to decide on which one to get.

Stereo Console:


non Stereo Console:


I want the stereo console, but really don't want to loose the cupholders. I have a Tuffy in my CJ-7 and I lost the cupholders there (a B&M Z-Gate shifter was in the way), and didn't like that part of it. Actually this is my first vehicle with cupholders and I don't want to loose them.

I'm just looking for some opinions.

The current stereo will go into the console.

I have the rear cupholders on the Tuffy in my CJ and they are a pain to use if your sitting in the front.

It's for the Jeep in my sig., a 98 Sahara. The older consoles will not work. I emailed Tuffy about the first console you had a link to.

I'd say go for the Stereo console. You can always shove a drink in beside the hand brake. I've always thought it would be cool to mount cup holders to the right of the shifter, but I haven't tried it yet.

I see the CJ is for sale, but did you ever try the cup holder that mounted to the windshield knob? Wish I had one of those in my old CJ.

I never tried the windshield knob cupholders. Thought about it, just never tried it.

the stereo console is nice. but remember.... some cd players will not play at the 90 degree angle that it would be mounted in. just somthing to think about
