    Anyone know of a good replacement for the stock center console other than the Tuffy locking center console?

    For what it's worth I love my Tuffy box. It's one of the best upgrades I've done to the interior.

    I second that. Being able to lock up the stereo and everything else that can be stuffed into it is great. It also gives me a locking storage place for my removable steering wheel.

    2 50 cal. ammo cans fit real nice there, and they're high enough to provide an excellent arm rest. add a couple u-bolts and some good pad locks (the kind which don't have an accessible U), bolt those suckers to the floor and you've got a clean-looking, durable, locking center console that costs less than 50 bux (the pad-locks are the expensive part).

    Grant steering wheel security system. I got it from Summit. Attaches to your wheel and column, allows you to remove the wheel with a special key. Then I just put my wheel into my Tuffy console and lock it up. I figure it's a pretty good theft deterrant since if the bad guy doesn't see a steering wheel it would make it pretty hard to steal.

    buy the tuffy or build a custom, that is you only 2 options vs a stock replacement. I love my delux tuffy and only paid $176.40 for it brand new. thats cost :D .

    My 10.5" Tuffy box fits very well in my '72 K5 between my custom PRP Racing Seats. If you like I'll take pictures of it Monday and post picks for you. You can't go wrong with Tuffy, they are strudy as hell. Yeah, everybody has a Tuffy and you want to be diff but they are the best. No, I don't work for Tuffy.

    by the time you build a custom one you will have wished you had just bought the tuffy, and I bet it wont be as nice looking either. unless you have a full sheet metal shop with sheel metal sheer's bending breaks, and other sheet metal tools you would need I would not bother. the tuffy is powdercoated too. I dont work for tuffy either.
