Tuffy Series II Security Console (8" Wide) Reviews
Maybe I'm just not "gear headed" enough, but I can't call this a 'drop-in' replacement, hence the 4 stars. Yeah, I get it, it has to fit multiple models, but still....
Anyway, the console itself is robust and beefy. God forbid I get in an accident with this thing in, because it'll break bones. LOL It locks, solidly. I am certain it's going to fill it's primary role....securing my GPS, stereo, and firearms. It also looks pretty good. Very industrial, but good.
Now, installing it was fairly easy. I am by no means a gear head, but for the most part the instructions were pretty straightforward. I knew I was going to have to drill some holes. But imagine my surprise when what looked the obvious two holes to drill (even after dry fitting) turned out to not be aligned. And the tab up by the shift column was a good 1/4" off of the console. I loosely screwed in that one, using the factory screw, and loosely screwed in the one in the cup holder. Even with that slack, I had to work to put the shift cover on. That little red plastic bit that shows what gear you're in now edges over into the alpha/numeric column a little. The column doesn't bind though, so I'm rolling with it. I tightened those two down, redrilled the hole inside the main compartment, and tightened it down.
Next thing is the plate that holds the shifter cover in place. It used 4 small screws. The back ones, by the bottom of the dash, were hard to put in and I stripped the head off one when I overtightened it. They're also silver, which looks kinda crappy with all the black. On the passenger side, the front of the console melds nicely with the floorpan, but on the driver's, it clearly has a gap between the bottom of the assembly and the floorpan. The foam ears in the cupholders seems flimsy and the bolt sticks up in the cupholder area seems like it'll cause either 1) a lot of rattling with a coffee tumbler, or 2) possibly tear open a styrofoam cup.
I bought some neoprene squares with adhesive on the bottom in the cupholders. I'm also going to try to line the interior compartment with it to prevent rattling. Some other suggestions (if Tuffy is listening)....
1) recess the places where bolts go, especially in the cupholder areas.
2) offer a laser-cut pad kit, to line the interior compartments and cupholders.
3) find a better way to secure the shift cover.
4) blackened hardware
Anyway, it's still a pretty decent product, but there is a little room for improvement.
Excellent product, fits perfectly in my 03 TJ! Also, I contacted Tuffy because of a defective part (most likely caused by myself during installation), and they immediately shipped a replacement part for free, no questions asked. Aesome customer service, I will be back for more!
Great product. Well built.
