Anyone use the Tuffy Security Drawer?

I've been looking at the Tuffy 130 full length security drawer both for the added storage space and also to bring my rear seat up and back to give the rear passengers a bit more room.

Looking specifically at this model:
Full Length Underseat Drawer for Jeep CJ-7, Wrangler, YJ, TJ, TJ

Does anyone use this drawer currently?

If so, how has it held up? Any problems with people sitting on the seat, especially heavy people? Has the drawer held up to the abuse?

Mind taking a picture of the front of the drawer where it's mounted? Would like to see how close to the foot wells it mounts up front to still be a "full drawer".

Denis

Yep, it's pretty nice for junk you want to carry everywhere (winching & air compressor tools for me). I wish it was about 1/2" taller though. You kind of have to hold things like recovery straps down while you push the drawer shut. It was a PITA to install, though I covered mine with carpet, which likely made it a bit more difficult. However, what little room it gives to your passengers in leg height, it removes from head clearance. I would guess most adults find it more uncomfortable than stock. It is built very well, and has an internal brace. I'm pretty sure it would hold up just as long as having the seat bolted in the tub.

Yeah, pictures would be great! I just want to see where is sits up front and how it looks mounted.

Sorry, got distracted with a bunch of junk. Let me know if you want to see a certain view, but I think I have most of them covered here:
