Since I got my Jeep I've been trying to find the perfect solution for storage in the back. I wanted something secure, but not permanent, with ample room for everything I want to keep back there, but that also wouldn't monopolize all of the space so I could still carry plenty of...luggage or whatever.
I had looked at the two different options that Tuffy offers, and came very close to buying the Tailgate Security Enclosure, but was holding off on those for a few reasons. I also considered waiting for the new security box that Smittybilt will be releasing in a couple months but it also wasn't exactly what I wanted.
Well now I think I've found the perfect solution. I was also in the market for a good tool set and settled on the 255 piece Craftsman set that Sears has on sale right now. It might be a bit overkill but it really does have it all, including a full set of Torx bits! But the best part is that it wedges PERFECTLY in the space between the sub woofer and the rear seat.
So that got me looking for the right container to complete the space across, thereby holding the tool set in place, and giving me a secure place to put the rest of my gear. I found the 20 gallon Power Packer at Home Depot and it fits exactly in the rest of the space right behind the rear seat, lining up with the edge of the sub woofer. It's roomy enough inside for all sorts of recovery gear, first aid, camping supplies, etc. And it's also very sturdy and is lockable.
The way they both fit back there so well, they hold each other in place to where there's no movement while driving, but still easy enough to pull out when you need more room. As is, though, you still have half of your cargo area free for whatever else you need to carry. Or if you want more security from people grabbing them, they line up just right with the tie-down points so you can run a cable around them and lock it with the same padlock you use to lock the box.
I was only able to get one good pic without taking out my back window but I'll post a few more tomorrow. I couldn't be happier about how it turned out. I should also specify that I've got a '12 JKUR with the sub woofer so I'm not sure how well they'd fit in other models.
