I searched around. So far I have come up with this....it seems that all of these products work well, however I have found this is one downfall. If you have power locks, there is nothing stopping anyone from reaching into your jeep, unlocking the doors via the power lock system and then they have instant access to your "secure" trunk. The only way I can think to keep this from happening is to remove the tailgate from the power lock system and just use the key all of the time. I haven't figured out how to do that yet, but i'm sure it can be done. Any thoughts?

FYI

Just tried it, the door locks on the jeep don't work after a short time period so the rear is secure with the Tuffy Security Deck! Pfew...thought that might have been a waste!

From Tuffy site

173 - TUFFY JK SECURITY DECK ENCLOSURE


E-mail this product to a friend

This security deck enclosure creates a large and lockable storage area completely protected on all sides. It works in conjunction with the vehicle rear door and lock (power lock switches become disabled after approximately 16 seconds when locking doors with the key fob). The lid easily hinges open and is secured shut using an innovative latching system. The lid and front can be easily removed without tools so larger items can be transported when required. The unique lid design is constructed from structural welded steel which incorporates a large weight bearing tray for organizing and transporting items on top. There are also two large trays on each side above the wheel well for addition storage and organization.
