Isolating rear lock for Tuffy Security deck

I'm contemplating adding the Tuffy security deck enclosure to my 4 door Wrangler. But it will only be secure if I can isolate the rear door lock. It will be useless if someone can pop the softtop and hit the unlock button. Has anyone come across this issue yet? Any suggestions to secure the cargo area?

I have manual locks so I didnt think of that issue. It is a great product though. A lot of piece of mind.

Hmmm...sounds like a bit of a quandary! With power locks, you are basically only getting a "hide shield" to cover valuables and keep them out of sight...you might locate the fuse for the door locks and rig up some kind of kill switch to disable them while away from the Jeep...or just pull the fuse each time...??? Good luck!

I was wondering if anyone had tried running a kill switch to the back door locks, its the only way I can think of disabling it.

i believe the locks quite working after like 30 secs of the jeep being off. you could always just leave the doors off too.

Let us know if that works...hadn't thought of that. I put the security deck on thinking it'd be safe...DUH. Very interested to see what you find.

Guess I could try that myself! It's early!

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!

I tried it a little while ago, I feel much better now, I had the same results. Power locks stop working when alarm is set. Now just to find the best price on the Tuffy.

I got mine from Quadratec. Best price I found at the time.

I had a cargo liner in the rear that didn't fit well anymore so I cut it up and used it on top of the Tuffy. Looks good, I think.

It's not in the pic, but I ordered a Lloyd rubber cargo mat that covers the entire rear (minor trim with a scissor) and stays flexible all the time. It extends under the back edge of the Tuffy and covers the back of the rear seats when they're down. When the seats are up, it folds over easy enough between the rear seats and the back of the tuffy.

Can the top of the deck be taken out and put back in easily? I'd be interested in getting one so that when i have the hard top off, my sub and amp in the rear are protected. However when the hard top is on I'd take the top of the deck out. I don't think the sub would sound good covered by the Tuffy deck.
