i personally dont but i have heard they are really good and well worth the money, ive considered getting one a couple times
The latch mechanism broke on my center console (the locks wouldn't retract), and I finally decided to force it. A screw driver and a little muscle, and I had it open in about 15-20 seconds with no apparent damage.I was relying on the stock console and glove compartment locks on the Eddie last time I had the top off. Real criminals would be through those in seconds !
I have one and it is great esp. when you need to secure valuables..(let them take the entire Bronco, bec. they'll have trouble getting in this console).
Powdercoating has lasted extremely well despite abuse.
12.5" model is a perfect fit.
One bolt hit the x-member (think it was the X...must look again soon), so I switched it w/a shorter length.
Check around for prices...some stores sell them cheaper than the Tuffy site.
Some pics in my SF Bronco site for console's location relative to driver's seat.

id save the $250 IMO. thats just me...
I've thought about that, too...cept for the permenant part... I'm thinking about mounting a Jobbox (or something similar) behind the back seat,and bolting it to the floor... I can lock it when the top is off, and no one can just reach over and gank my tools, straps and chainsjermil01 said:Discussion about these consoles leads me to another question regarding security. How about securing your tool boxes in the back, with out permanantly fixing them to the floor.
I guess you could consider Florida part of the Bible Belt, but there are still thieves here, only they read the bible... lol :histericajermil01 said:Yeah I have a locking glovebox, but a butter knife will open that up, and I guess you could consider Florida part of the Bible Belt, but there are still thieves here, only they read the bible..My main thing is if I'm out at the movies or if I park somewhere other than home over night or for an extended period of time..My CD player is a POS pioneer so I'm not too worried about that, but I'd like something that I can stick my wallet and cell phone in and other stuff I tote around with me and not have to worry about it..You're pretty hardcore goind topless in the Bronx and leaving you s**t in a locked glove box..I guess I'm just paranoid.
