• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Well Done! Clean install both inside and out, and I like the idea of the ball mount on the toolbox as opposed to the truck body. What sort of speaker setup do you have?
Just regular speakers... the console has cutouts for two and then there are two under the seats.

The low band antenna works well on the toolbox and is easy to take on and off. We only use low band for specific operations so it is rare that it is on there anyway. The chrome ball blends right in with the toolbox when the whip isn't installed.

How was the console installed/ mounted?
(I know Havis has a 2009-2014 F150 tunnel mount for their consoles, that just uses the seat bolts, but Troy doesn't seem to have something like that).

I have a 2014 F150 XL Regular cab & since there is rarely someone sitting in that centre seat, I've been contemplating removing the centre seat entirely & replacing it with a console like that for some radios & a scanner (without making any holes in the floor preferably).

Very clean install though.

It's a Havis floor plate that actually mounts to the attachment for the OEM center console/seat. It's not an exact match but I made it work.

Thanks for the answer. :)
I was thinking of that solution for my F150, & a Troy console prior to asking, but wasn't to sure if 2 different manufacturers would go together at all. At least now I know it's possible to use that Havis mount with the Troy console.
