What under-the-seat lock box...

Actually fits a 2011 Wrangler Sport? I see tons of manufacturers (Tuffy being one) saying that it will fit an 11' Wrangler but have heard the opposite from people who've actually tried and installed them.

My question to you guys..are there truly any on the market under the seat storage boxes that will fit a 2011 Wrangler without any kind of modification?

Thanks ahead of time!

They will fit in an 11 Wrangler as long as it is a 4 door.

^^ What he said.

The problems are with 2-door Jeeps with the fold & tumble seats...I know the Tuffy won't fit those; pretty sure the Bestop version won't, either.

However, they will fit on a 4-door. I've got the Tuffy under the driver's seat in my '12. Just make sure you have a breaker bar handy to loosen the seat bolts (or an impact wrench)...they're waaaay over-torqued from the factory.

That's really too bad. Recently got my LTC A in Massachusetts and wanted some kind of under the seat storage in my 11' 2-Door. You would think that there would be someone smart who had figured out a way to make it work.

Some members have cut and re-welded the crossbar or added spacers and longer mounting bolts, but the latter sounds risky. Since the unlimited front seats works, you may be able to cut the front crossbar if you don't use the slide and tilt feature, but don't know if anyone has tried this.

A viable option, though not as convenient as under the seat storage. I just installed a lock box in the back under the floor. Check out post #10.
