2012 JK security tailgate enclosure and locking cubby cover

I've been looking for a security enclosure (add a trunk) for the 2012 JK and was referred to this company by KBWWOLF. They were back ordered for a few weeks and I finally got the products in and installed over the weekend. Wanted to share with you guys in case anyone else was looking or needed one for top down driving. Perfect for your gym bag, laptop case or any other valuables. It should be noted that this security enclosure will only fit 2011 and newer and yes, the locking cubby will still work with the security enclosure.

I got the security tailgate enclosure (turns your rear cargo area into an enclosed trunk) and the locking cubby cover (which replaces the plastic storage compartment in the rear). Both products were made by Tuffy and were easy to install (a second set of hands and the rights tools were handy also).

Here are the links for the products if you guys are interested.

So I gotta admit, the instructions were kinda confusing and it took us some time and a few beers to figure them out but once they were installed, I have no complaints. Here are some tips and pics.

To install the locking cubby, start by removing the floor mat, plastic cover, plastic storage bin and the jack (this will give you more room to clamp the locking mechanism into place). I know the first pic still has the plastic storage bin in it. Just take it out. Install the Tuffy cover first. Slide the Tuffy cover into place and screw the hinges into place by pulling up on the carpet cutout. Next, install the locking mechanism by clamping it down into the well where the jack is stored. The locking mechanism should fit flush up against the forward wall and make sure to align it up with the lock from the cover. See pic #2. Tighten down the screws and you're done.

To install the security enclosure, start by attaching all the rubber seals to the top and rear panels and removing the rear cargo loops using a t-30 torx bit. Don't feel bad if you don't have a set. I didn't either but good thing my neighbor did. You do need this and there's no other way around it. Now install the rear panel first by sliding the mounting flanges in between the carpet and plastic molding. Screw those down and place the top panel on top of the rear panel and screw them together in the rear. And you're done.

Hope this was helpful to someone. Enjoy.

Looks good dude!

I think the locking cubby cover is great for the newer 2-doors with the fold & tumble (or tip n slide...whatever the hell they're called) seats, since the underseat box won't fit.

Sounds like the installs went well, too.

Doesn't that set up interfere with the use of the subwoofer/rear speaker? It looks like it covers it up when the door is closed... Is that an issue? I am looking for something like that...

Nope. Not at all. I haven't noticed an issue yet. The rear wall does not fully extend down to the floor (about 3 inches) and there are side gaps (about 2 inches each side) that allow air and sound to escape and doesn't make your sub sound muffled. I dig it and highly recommend it if you're gonna keep around topless.

I just went to a two seater. Got rid of the rear seat and belts and installed a Tuffy Security Deck.



As far as the Sub; Bass is more of a feel than a sound. It'll travel through walls.

I think you're good bud. Unless your sub box is actually touching the Tuffy box, you shouldn't get any vibration. I have no issues with my sub.
