Utility Buckets w/ Console

Does anyone know if you can squeeze in the console between the utility buckets?

Or if not what do people run for consoles if they have utility buckets?

Thanks in advance.

I had a 71 with utility buckets and a console I'm assuming it came that way.

My '70 with utilities has one. Unsure if it came from the factory with it, but I had one and was able to it jamb in, it's a tight fit and I didn't even bother with bolting it down

Mine Fit. (see pic) and I have couple different 70's consoles but I recently chose to run a hot swappable configuration with new electronics (see other pic).

Re: Utility Buckets w/ Console

I'm using utility seats with console. It does fit, but it is tight. Biggest issue is the side of the passenger seat rubbing the console when you tilt it forwards.
To me it's worth it. I prefer the look and comfort of the utility seats better.
