    I got a tuffy console for christmas, and was wondering if I should use the mounting bracket that came with it or just bolt it to the floor.

    I'd use the bracket it helps to level the box and route your wires for the stereo if you got the deluxe stereo console...

    Thanks. Also, when I set it in there to see how it fit I could barly reach the seat belt buckle, did you have his problem? Is their an easy solution?

    If the '77 console mounts anything like the "newer" ones (like my '86) DON'T use the bracket it comes with. Drill 4 extra holes in the bottom of the console, and you can bolt it directly to the stock holes in front, and the bracket in the rear.

    The "newer" consoles used a bracket about 1-2" tall to mount the console in the rear, which put my tuffy console perfectly flat when mounted, and the seat belt ends are easily reached.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
