smittybilt console

These look like they might be a nice alternative to Tuffy consoles -- approximately the same dimensions, better cup holders, provision for a stereo mount and approximately 1/3 the price. Has anyone installed one yet?

Look nice! I am not sure how they will be mounted in a defender.

they have a poor reputation in the Jeep world for quality, but at a low enough price it could well be worth it. the seats in a Jeep are way closer than a defender if memory serves me- check the dimensions.

It looks like one will just fit length-wise, width should be fine. Like the tuffy it would want some bracing and spacers, but shouldn't be too tough.

Sure, I'd love to Paul. It's been a bunch of years since I installed on in my old NAS 90, it's be nice to see how others have done it. Plus I'd love to see your truck! Shoot me an email some time: brooks.anthony at gmail

9 inches wide seems very narrow to me...

That's what she said.

The Tuffys are 10" or 12". The 12" can be too wide in Defenders, making it tough to get the seat belt unlatched.

I have a 12" wide tuffy, and it's a perfect fit. no issues with seat belts.
