Oh ^ has to have the 2.5 in it....

The guy was just lookin for someone to go out and say they'll make the Jeep secure for 20 bucks.


On a positive note: this thread brought up some stuff that I never really thought of.

Jerry's RIGHT!! If someone isn't even bothering to read the advice given THEY are the ones who should get the hell off this forum, not the people trying to help. You can't fix stupid.

I hope he's getting every EMail in his inbox and sitting there wondering what went wrong with his life to ask for help then shun the best advice given him.

I'm really new here and even I know not to cross Jerry. Though I wouldn't treat free and friendly advice like shit no matter how long I've been here. You all have been fantastically helpful in my book and I also am not much of a mechanic; blah, blah, blah....

lol I told myself I wouldnt be back on the forums until I had a jeep because im already addicted but here i am.

This threads gone off topic too haha. IŽd like to ask about these specific tuffy boxes,

http://www.tuffyproducts.com/p-285-2...flip-seat.aspx
Here is one that goes under the drivers seat, not quite as large as this one

http://www.tuffyproducts.com/p-124-0...orage-box.aspx
in which case you lose the backseat, which isnt really a loss lol and also alot of money to be blunt.

Ok for the first one, under the seat, Im looking at the installation instructions and it seems that someone would be able to just take out the 4 bolts and take the box with them lol. But honestly, Im not assuming a theives going to do that. But anyone have the box, is it that easy? just wondering.

Now for the second one, how far can the seats recline? Im sure they designed it with that in mind but I want to make sure. Im assumingthat the bolts can only be accessed and unscrewed from within the box, but i might be mistaken.

overall im not too concerned with security, in fact I dont really have anything in my current truck so I wont havemuch of a problem.

IŽd still want to get a kill switch tho
whereŽd yall mount yours at?
..

also when the key is out of the ignition IE unlocked in a dark parking lot, can you turn the wheel. I remember in HS someone with a 90wrangler and at lunch we moved his jeep while in nuetral and scared the shit outa him (possible wit a 04 or 05?) if so will a simple wheel lock suffice?=



thanks a ton

For the first box, you'd have to remove the seat to get it out. While not impossible, difficult to discourage the casual thief.

For the second box, the seats can be reclined back more than you'd need to unless you wanted them to recline like if you were going to spend the night in the Jeep. Having done that once, I won't be doing that again.

The TJ's steering wheel can only be turned if it is not locked. And if it is not locked, it will lock once you turn it a litttle more.

And having had three Tuffy security boxes in my last TJ, glove box, console liner, and rear drawer box, they are a great product. I'm sure it took the thieves that stole my entire TJ three months ago some effort to break into them afterwards.

Im wondering, does cutting the harness wire to install it void some kinda warranty? I wouldnŽt want to take it in for service and have them refuse me because they see a few extra wires

EDIT, if someone can just flat bed your jeep, do you think turning your wheels fully to one side when you park would prevent that? lol seems like they would have a harder time

Probably got a 350 in it or something so they put the bowtie on the side.

They were feeling nostalgic since Jeep was once owned by GM or Chevy.
