Looking for a Cargo area cover

I've been thinking that i would be cool to be able to cover up the cargo area just in case i'm out and need to make a stop with the top off. I can't really throw bags back there and make another stop the thieves would steal my Walmart bags. Any ideas? It can be soft or hard

Don't know if you're looking for some kinda cheap solution, like a plastic cover, but I often carry camera equipment that's worth more than my Jeep, so I bought one of these:

JK Security Deck Enclosure Jeep Wrangler, JK 2011+

When you use your key fob to lock the doors, even w/doors & top off, it locks the tailgate, so nobody can access the compartment. Also, with the tailgate open you can slide the top out and pop it off, leaving the cargo area open for carrying larger items.

I don't have photos of mine installed, but here are a few from Sueby, who posted in another thread awhile back. There is no bottom, so you can mount the thing with your cargo liner, etc intact. Pretty cool how they have it set up, actually. You'd need some heavy duty tools and good chunk of time to break into the thing.

Thanks for the pics, Sueby!




Top removed, just the back and sides installed:




Totally removed, this one little bracket on the wheel wells are all that's left:




Fully installed with the back window secured:




Back window up, tailgate closed:

There's a much smaller one that's cheaper. But frankly, if you want cheap, you should just by a big ammo box or something and throw a padlock on that bad boy. Nothing for JK's is cheap.

And I've got a JKU...I'll post some photos of mine later this morning.

Here's a link to the Tuffy site. There are versions for the 2-door and the 4-door. I'll also throw in a couple of WF threads on the subject...FREE!

I really want something to cover my tailgate too, for a while now actually.

I was thinking of buying the tonneau, and having someone fiberglass it, but couldn't figure out the mechanics of how to make it work. Oh well

With the Tuffy lid off. You can also remove the rear plate (parallel to the rear seats) by undoing 4 knob screws. Takes about 1 minute.

Couldn't take any new detail pics this a.m. cuz it's raining out and my roof/doors are still off. C'est la vie.

But I recently ordered 8 tie-down brackets for the top, so I can pile stuff on there and strap it down with locking cable nets when I travel. Very handy.

Thank you.

It's got one hell of an appetite, though.

Bumping this thread back up... COP4x4 just posted up pics of a cargo area cover that their interiors guy made for his wife's JKU, and they're hoping to have it available soon. Looks pretty damned near OEM, they did a really great job! Also, they said the price would be around $300-ish.

I too would like something like that. I'd like something that worked on the JK with the seats up. I'd remove the seats but I have kiddos that I drive around all the tim. I keep some bags in there all time with Mountain Bike clothes and helmets and stuff. Nothing terribly expensive I just don't like the idea of having an easy to grab bag sitting there for someone to snatch. A cover to keep things out of site would be ideal.
