2011 JKU owners are out of luck with Bestop

Just learned from Bestop customer service, that in spite of their website, neither the Instatrunk nor the Flexitrunk fit the 2011 JKUs, with or without the subwoofer.

The worst news is that I then asked if updated models are in production and was told that they might have something out in 2012, but they weren't sure that it would happen.

That is typical. JK's are the last projects they care about. As with the tops TJ's will get new tops 6 months before JK models. Of course the TJ's are older there are more tops being replaced so there is where the money is made. So the bottom line is that it boils down to the bottom line. They probably don't see the money to make one sooner then later.

Tuffy, however, appears to be going the other direction on this. They are actively marketing to ALL Jeep Wrangler owners. Here's what I received from them today in response to the same question. I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate their customer service! See below...just sounds like a completely different tone...

"We are on it!
*
I will add you to my notification list when the product becomes available… in the next month.* We will release a phenomenal redesigned Secure Storage Deck for the 2011 JK, as well as a beautiful Secure Storage Center Console.* The 2011 Secure Storage Glove Box is currently available in black.
*
I appreciate your interest and encourage you to be ready to purchase when they become available in a less than a month when we roll it out.* Several 2011 owners are waiting and ready to buy, as well as our dealers.* It is the next great accessory for 2011 JK owners.
*
At this time I cannot even release photos, but the deck is lighter, more secure and more convenient than its predecessor.
*
Thanks for choosing TUFFY,
*Ragan Young

Outdated thread but anyone know if Tuffy did end up releasing the '11 JK unlimited version of this?
