    i missed it so much so i put it in my 77 jimmy i hve had for ayear.

    this is my baby, i wanted the shorter wheelbase for wheeling, and I can sleep in the back while camping!!

    OK, from the left side wall (under the park brake pedal) to the center of the hole is 13 3/4". From the joint where the floor meets the firewall the center of the hole is 1 1/2" down. The hole itself is 2" in diameter.
