only way I'd run a sub in a jeep is inside a tuffy or stock console.

You have vehicle with no way to lock up unless you have a hard top. Rule of thumb is do not leave anything in it unless you don't care if it walks away. There is no way to secure anything in a Jeep with a soft top short of welding it to the Jeep itself. If somebody wants it they will take it.

Not a sure bet but the insta trunks are a nice option for a lockable compartment (as long as your tailgate locks). You could put the sub and amp in there if you wanted. Quadratec carries them.

Personally, I don't pound the subwoofer in my own neighbourhood or within a few blocks of anywhere I am parking and I always watch to see if people are following me to scope it out. The less people that know it is there the better. Cable locks are a waste of time but you can buy locking bolts and bolt it down. Locking bolts are similar to locking lug nuts there is no pattern for a normal wrench to grip on to.

I have a insta trunk and if I were to put in a sub that's exactly where I would put it, would take some serious noise and effort to get that out!! That nail gun in the pic is worth about 500 bux and that's the only place I store it, stays dry that way also

That's the one I meant, I too only use this area for valuables. Not fool proof, but not an easy job to break in, plus you can't tell if anything is in there.

Somebody got into my tuffy console. Fortunately there was nothing in it but they still destroyed the top.

Unfortunately when you are somewhere like school, word of mouth about having a stereo systems gets out. If you do go with a replacement, look in to getting different kinds of screws to hold down the enclosure, and not just phillips head screws so that you will have to use a special bit to unscrew the driver and/or brackets to access the box.

Like it was said above and countless times before.

DON'T ever leave anything of value in your Jeep unless you are near it at all times.

If it is in plain sight, the useless scumbag criminals will have their hands on it in a heartbeat.

I have a passive security system in mine, if a shock sensor is set off, then front and rear facing cameras record. I might not be able to stop them from trying to steal from me, but at least I will have them on video. Video proof is invaluable for numerous reasons.

Ugh, I'd end up in jail after I saw the video and grabbed a gun....

That's an interesting solution. What kind of cameras do you have on there?

That's when it pays to own a backhoe. A 10ft deep hole, a couple bags of lime, no body, no crime.

I got the security system from Amazon. It comes with a grille mounted camera, a rear bumper mounted camera, and an interior mounted camera.
As well as a 7" LCD screen that serves as a reverse camera (when in reverse) or press a button on the screen and watch what is happening out front (great for picking new lines while rock crawling).

And when you switch it to passive security, it has a shock sensor that detects front to back or side to side movement, which turns on all 3 cameras and records for up to 30 minutes.

The entire kit with wiring and all mounting tabs was $269.
