Default Cubby box

I am looking to add a center cubby box to the tithonus. I removed the gun mounts etc so and standard cubby should fit. Here is the criteria I am looking for:
Heavy gage steel locking construction
Can mount a marine din radio / speaker
Possibly mount a small 8 pos blue sea fuse panel
Can mount carling switches
Steel Cup holders
Watertight storage area

Any suggestions?

I will take a look at the tuffy. Any issues with the 12" fitting? The ones on the tuffy website are different from the ones on rovers north.

Anyone have experience with the Fcx box?

Let us know what you find out. My wife promised me an FCX cubby for my birthday end of this month. Don't know that she has contacted them yet.

My wife ordered mine last night. She said it was easy. 60 gbp shipping. She ordered the radio cubby without the extra switch area. The mid priced one. I'll be putting it on top of a front-runner safe.

Why not use the one from Mud that slides out the rear so that you do not dump the contents around when you flip up??
