Did you have any problems with the door pushing it to the side when installed? I just did mine Saturday and I had to jam something in it to keep it pushed over to the right. It was disappointing considering the price. Otherwise, I love it.

Exclamation buyer beware

I ordered my Tuffy security door locks from Quadratec. Item # 11150 0002. When I ordered them it showed they were for an 07-13 jku. My ticket shows the part only for 07-11 but when you copy paste the item # in their search it shows for 07-13 jku. I was about a 1/16' shy of complete and it sheared off my factory bolt because the tuffy base is way too long. Now I get to see it Q will take care of this.

I had zero problems with the fit (I was sweating a bit because I had read some comments here on the forum about fit issues) I do know that there are two different pods...one is specifically for 2011-2013. I don't know if that pertains to your situation.

The only problem that I had was figuring which of my wires went to which connector on the switch (I am NOT an electrician!). Since no help was offered in the instructions, I went to my fail-safe...Google I got some info and applied a bit of deductive guessing...BOOM, works like a champ

Maybe that was my problem. I got it at a Morris 4x4. It's a huge place like quadratec, but they go in the back and grab it when you walk in. But it is just molded plastic so I suppose it could warp.

Does you know the size of the rubber hose that will fit in the stock bump stops? I'd rather use rubber hosing than go with Daystars.

It may very well be that they gave you the incorrect Pod. The correct numbers are:

2011-2013
Pod Kit (includes 4 switches) 17235.96
Pod only 17235.58

2007=2010
Pod Kit (includes 4 switches) 17235.86
Pod only 17235.56

If you still have your paperwork you can check. I hope that this helps

Yeah, I looked the part number up and gave it to them and my ticket says it was right, but alas I don't have the box anymore. I jammed some cardboard into the bottom to push it over for now. I will fix it right sometime but I was getting pissed and had to walk away. It actually is perfect now, just knowing the cardboard is in there is bothersome though.
What have you hooked up to it so far? I just ran wires and await some new treats.
