Tuffy Security Products Security Deck Enclosure

275-01 - Tuffy Security Products Security Deck Enclosure for 2011 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
Looking to get this for my 2012 JKU

Looking for a review if you installed it yourself; I could have the dealer install it as I am not that mechanically inclined and it mentions something about a T-40 torx tool since I have a hard top.(Dual Top)

I keep my laptop in the trunk along with other gear so I need a lockable area with the soft top.

Let me know what you think about it...thanks

Worked great for me. Even though the Q-tec instructions tell you it will take about 3 hours (approximately, I don't remember the exact time) it was very easy and quick. Great product as far as I'm concerned and glad that I bought it.

Just put one in yesterday in a 2012 Sahara unlimited, took about 1 hr with two people working on it, hardest part was putting the bolts back in for the hard top. ALso put in one of the tuffy underseat drawers.

this looks like a really cool product. i am new and don't have my jeep yet. should get here in 2 weeks. is this enclosure still locked secure when the top is off? ie, can someone reach in to the jeep, hit the door unlock button, and then open up the rear gate? or is the gate locked differently? it would be nice to leave recovery gear locked in there all the time. thanks!

"Power lock switches become disabled after approximately 16 seconds when locking doors with the key fob."

best mod I've done to my jeep. I leave my top off most of the time and very nice to have the secure storage. Took a couple of hours with basic tools to install. I got the rubber "diamond plate" for the top and mounted my high lift jack through the top with button head bolts so my jack is secure as well.

I bought the diamond plate liner, too. Hoping to install mine early next week.

Good idea for the hi-lift. Might have to check something like that out.

I didn't want to spend the 70 bucks for the liner so I went to Lowe's and bought a 3x5 rubber mat for $20.00 and cut it to fit

it's is totally covered, so while it still works, you can't (at least I can't) even tell that it is there.

You can't tell the sub-woofer is there or you can't tell the security deck is there?

The security deck encloses the subwoofer. From what I've been able to find out, the Tuffy doesn't interfere with the subwoofer at all, in terms of performance.

Not sure how true that is, but I'm gonna find out very soon. Probably install mine in the next few days, time permitting.

Good deal. Thanks, Chris.

BTW: Finally supposed to get my tires next week. Soon as they come in, I'll be installing them with the FT lift. It's been sitting in my garage for weeks, mocking me!

Can't wait.

Can't tell the sub-woofer is there, it still works but it is now surrounded by metal plus what ever you cram underneath the metal plate.

Its simple - 4 little knob screws and its out. Under a minute to remove it.

What is the difference between this one, and the $200 lockable trunk thingy from Tuffy?

Mostly, about 12,000 cubic inches of storage space.

That was a good clue, which prompted a trip to Tufft's site. Turns out the expensive rig requires us 2 door ruffians to fold and stow the rear seats. The smaller, less expensive option works with the seats in normal position.


I think I might get one of those... it would be more than enough to secure what I would worry about... like gats for the range, some electronic shopping, whatnot.

I thought there was some issue between 2-door/4-door. Just couldn't remember what it was.

Still, both versions look more than capable of keeping some moron from running off with stuff when you're cruising sans top. I've got one camera lens that costs nearly 9K, and wouldn't hesitate to keep it in the Tuffy while I was away from the Jeep.

Then again, it's either that or leave it on the floorboards.

i was also wondering how this would affect a rubber catch mat in the trunk? i've got the mats from quadratec, which work awesome and i'd hate to lose the protection the trunk mat gives. i realize that the tuffy security deck would provide protection from the outside elements, but the rubber mats protect my car from salt water and muddy things i'd be throwing back there.
