Took mine out this weekend and the center console get very hot, I would think it would make the bottom of the seat too hot to sit in.Yes, between the front two. I picked the Commander up and the seat I have will fit between on top of the center console. I think a center 'seat belt' bar like the one that TCB sells will work for attaching to the back of the seat and I'll have to look under the center console to see how I might secure the bottom of the seat. I don't know about the heat yet but airflow shouldn't be a problem on the Commander since the intake is under the hood.
I'm not a 'fab' guy. I'm a machined parts kind of guy so this might be interesting.
