Custom center console

So I've been wanting to get a Tuffy stereo console and a Lelofab center console spacer. For the past few months I've worked with Jeff at Lelofab to develop a spacer for my new Tuffy that would accommodate six Contura switches a Blue sea system 12v outlet and USB charger.

So I'm posting pics of the results and will update as the space provided by the spacer I plan to wire my aux fuse box, relays, etc.

Jeff-thanks for a great product. Really happy with the results.

To start- Tuffy compared to the stock cubby.

I like that spacer, I am working on something simulator but a pull out drawer for a 45 or your liking.

Didn't like that cup holder thing anyway

I'll defer to Jeff but I understood he had made these for others. I specifically asked for the switch panel. Don't know how many others he's made like this. Good guy to work with though so if you want something similar hit him up at:

Finally wired up the switches, relay and fuse holders. Spacer gives plenty of space for all my aux wiring distro needs.

Very nice! I just emailed Jeff about getting one. I'm about to add an aux fuse panel to my ROW truck and was hoping to not have to place it in the battery box. This is the perfect solution.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, wouldn't you need to remove the console to change a fuse if you put it there ?

I'll go one further to say that putting all that hot in a place that inaccessible is no bueno.
