Security Cover in JKU

I have been searching and my aftermarket lady at my dealership have not come back with a viable option. I have a 2014 JKU Oscar Mike. Besttop had one which was nice but didn't cover the entire JKU back. I am looking for something that work with hardtop on or off and covers the entire rear., anything someone can point me at would be greatly appreciated

I have the Bestop Insta-trunk for the JKU, did you see that one? Covers the entire area behind the back seats and works with either top or no top. Like Dusthol said, Tuffys a good company for that too.

After a lot of reading I went with the Tuffy 299. Still waiting on it to come in.

I liked the options on the Tuffy 275 but with it you have to redo it every time you take the hard top on and off.

I had not seen the besttop one that filled the entire area. The only one I have found was the 2.5cf one which looks like it's more designed for the JK vs the JKU.. I will check out Tuffy also.. Thanks for the help!

Sorry, I didn't think about the new interior on the 11-14's. The InstaTrunk is for 07-10 interiors.

Never dreamed I'd be happy twenty miles from the nearest grocery store, but I have to say owning a jeep makes the trip more fun!

Although I wonder how it would work with my ACE cargo basket installed...

Not sure how your basket rides but I used to use a toneau cover for my top when it was down and can't use it now.

Here are some pics of the top of the box.

Thanks, Beast. I think my rack runs a little higher, but I'll have to check it out more closely. It's too rainy out to go messing with the soft top now.

How do you lock the tailgate? I have a 13 jku and am looking at the security decks and am wonder what. Is to prevent a would be thief from just hitting the auto door lock on the drivers door and opening the trunk?

Got mine installed. Took 30 to 45 minutes by myself. I extra set of hands would be nice but not required.

Overall happy with the fitment and it looks like it will serve its purpose well.

Just installed mine. Like it better than the other one I tried first. Looks like it'll work with the cargo cover too

How does the Bestop Instatrunk compare to the Tuffy JK Security Deck Enclosure? I think the Tuffy version seems more secure, but it is more expensive and it might not even offer as much space since it comes with it's own sides. Does the Instatrunk seem to have the same level of security?

There's a reason most jeepers go with tuffy. They deal in security. Not dabble in accessories.

Anyone have experience with the Tuffy deck while driving with the soft top down, but still attached. All of the pictures here show the soft top completely removed from the Jeep. How is it with the soft top in the down position? Pictures would be greatly predicated.
