I just pulled mine out to have it refinished. It's secured in the back 2 corners with 2 bolts that go through the floor. The front is attached to the raised bracket support in the same fashion. I should have it back from Tuffy early next week and can take pictures.

My tuffy's got two bolts in the rear corners and one in the center of the front. All three go straight through the body and are secured with a washer and nylock nut. Don't know if that's how you want to do yours or even if that's how they come from tuffy. Previous owner installed/had it installed. If you're interested I can take some pics.

I got two pieces of square tubing to raise the box above the riser in the front and the lip in the back where the tub and seat box connect. I drilled holes through the square tubing and bottom of the tuffy box to line up with the threaded holes where the old cubby box attached. I reused the bolts from the original cubby and bolted it down. This setup makes things easier as I don't have to try and hold the top of the bolt as I tighten the nut underneath the car. The new Tuffy is attached with 4 bolts. I painted the tubing black to match. I can try and take some pictures if you like.

Steve,

Raider's install sounds a lot better than mine. See if you can do it his way. No holes all the way through and reversible. Its true, getting under the truck and having a buddy hold the top of the bolt sucks, and vise grips seem to come off more than they should.

I think this is the idea

I tried this last weekend, works like a charm.

I attached the aluminum tubes to the floor with the original hardware. Then I used self tapping sheet metal screws to attach the console to the tubes. I only had to drill one hole (the front one) in the Tuffy Console.

I don't think a 35 pound box secured with sheet metal screws is particularly safe. Bolt it through the braces and through the floor.

I'll try and take a picture tomorrow, but I am out of town for a while and all I have is the camera on my cell phone. Here is a drawing that probably explains it the best. I'll try and answer any questions to clear things up. I hope this helps.

I went to try and take some pictures, and couldn't get a shot that showed any more detail than the drawing does. If you would like a shot on how things look when all is said and done, let me know.

I'll take some pics this afternoon. I don't think I used any of the Tuffy hardware. I reused the 4 bolts that came out of the original. I am pretty sure that I had to dril 4 new holes in the bottom of the Tuffy cubby box that lined up with the threaded holes in the floor.

mine came with 2 small hollow spacers to go between the box and the floor to keep it the same hight as the ridge front and back. bolt up from underside with a nut on the lower part of the spacer, one bolt through the cover plate at the front, slide box over the bolts and use wing nuts inside. no need to go underneath to take box out again, two min job to take out


i can understand what i'm on about will take a picture tomorrow

awesome idea! I was thinking I could just get some hollow material and cut my own spacers.
