Tuffy Locking Cubby Cover For JK - Plastic Liner?

OK, so I installed the Tuffy locking cubby cover in the rear cargo area of my JK 2-door.

Interesting design. More interesting installation instructions. Would it hurt to add another page for more figure pics and more detailed how-to instructions??

But I digress. The locking mechanism does not allow for the reinstallation of the original plastic liner which slips into the cubby hole. I asked the Quadratech rep if there was a workaround or a recommendation on where to cut the original liner. He/she came up blank. Anyone out there come up with something?

I just assumed I could not use the liner together with the cover. I also had to make some cuts in the molding where the cover rests on the right and left side. The molding had a raised part about an inch long to accommodate for the floor seams (covered with goop). Once I made the cuts, the cover rested flat.

The Liner is still serviceable

Input appreciated.

Here's the thing. With the Tuffy locking door in place, you can still slide the rear of the liner into it's original position. The only obstruction is the front of the liner which is the flat portion that covers the tire jack. All that will need to be done is some careful measuring and/or trial and error. The entire basin of the liner will remain, as well as the front portion leading up to where the Tuffy lock catch is installed. I was hoping someone else had done the pioneer work. I'll get on it. Time to measure with the micrometer, mark with the chalk, and cut with the chain saw.

Also, there was no need to cut anything, carpet or molding, during my installation of the Tuffy door.

Interesting, I had to make the cuts so the cover would sit flat.

My tub is line-xed so I never actually tried to put the liner back in. I did do major cutting to the rear seat belt housings. I used blue painters tape and a Dremel cutting wheel. They now look like they came that way.

Snap a picture and post when your done. I'd be curious to see how it comes out.

Thanks. Will do. May be a few days. The very recent rain in Central Texas has lowered the burn ban. The drought took a toll and I have six new,very large, dead trees. Will be cutting and burning while the ban is lifted.

I just installed the same one in my 2013 JKU. I cut the bottom out of the plastic liner and installed the box. If you cut the plastic liner about 4 inches down from the top when you re-install the liner with the lock box inside it you ail get a very finished look. You can't even tell the tray has been cut.

I've been looking at this cover as well. I have an '07 and don't have any plastic inserts and looking at the pics on the web site it looks like I may not have the same problems.
One question for BadOleRoss: What is that above the cover? Do you have a Q-tech floor mat? (just curious because I have one too)

Been looking at getting the glove box and center console too.

Above mine is just the stock flooring panel that came in the back of the JKU. Yours has the carpet that is molded into the hole. If I remember from the instruction you will just need to pull that back so you can install the anchor bolt, cut a small slit in the carpet for the anchor bolt to go through and then put the carpet back in place.

I hoping some of you are still getting notices on this thread. I am looking at installing one of the cubby covers, too. Do you have to drill ANYTHING on the jeep for this install?

The guys above are talking about two different lockers. The one mounted in the blue JK is the VDP.
