Mine doesn't rattle. I did line the drawer on the inside with some toolbox drawer liner. Maybe that helps.

|thunderdan11||Those with the tuffy under seat storage, does yours rattle? Mine does and I can not seem to figure out where it is coming from.|

VDP locking hidden storage vault
Today I installed the VDP hidden storage vault. I ordered it about 2 weeks ago and it arrived today. It is made to drop into the well behind the back seat. No new holes required as it has a bolt and 2 plates that fit into the drain hole. It took all of 5 minutes to install.
However, it does not fit in snugly so I put some foam padding around it so it would not rattle. Also, I added a larger bulkhead washer to make the installation more secure.
It probably could be pried out with a crowbar but for my purpose it will be a good place to leave valuables or handguns out of site and pretty secure.
There is less space than the well offered but it is adequate. I am happy with it but it did need a bit of tinkering to fit it in better.
What is also nice is that it in no way takes away any space in the rear area. I can easily carry luggage or a few rifles to the range with the rear seat forward. In my retired '94 YJ I had installed an Instatrunk. It was also reasonably secure but it was a permanent fixture and made it difficult to transport anything long or tall so I passed on that for my 2dr JK.
It is available on a couple of sites but I purchased it for around $90 and added a set of handholds I also wanted to get free shipping from 4WD.

I always go with Tuffy if they have the product. I've just had better luck with them. I currently have the Tuffy glove box, Tuffy underseat storage and the Tuffy tailgate enclosure. All are quality products that fit great and actually look like they belong in the jeep. Tuffy usually costs a little bit more, but I think it's worth it.
You are comparing two different products. The Smittybilt is a pullout that takes up the entire rear section of your jeep in a 2 door. The Tuffy product is smaller and you can leave the rear seat in or remove it and have more open storage.

And yes as shocked as I was he opened my locked tailgate in 3 seconds with a bent paper clip. But he could not do it to the side doors for some reason for those he said he needs a toilet plunger.

Well they all look secure it has come to me that almost non of them are. My friend that works in a auto body shop told me and showed me how to open the rear tailgate door on a 08 threw 13 JK wrangler with a paper clip as fast as I could with my key. I went out and bought one of these.
I have it hooked where the rear seat hooks to the floor.

So, I just bought a 2013 Rubicon... 2 door/dual top, etc
I would like to get a lock box / security device in the back area...
What do you recommend is best?
Smittybilt Part 2763 - Rear Lockable Storage Box
Tuffy 282-01 - Tuffy Security Products Tailgate Security Enclosure for 11-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
Thanks in advance for your advice...

|MI JeepSkate||i store my liquor in the hard top case carrier in the back when i go to state land parks.if i have stuff to hide i put it there. also theres a thread on here about a guy who removed his rear seat and made a cover over the rear foot wells, it was more hidden than locked and safe, but it looked damn cool. plus it gave him extra room for stuff in the back|

|PecosRiver||I have the under seat box from BestTop and it works fine in my '13 when you remove a plate that holds wires in place. 2 bolts to remove it, no big deal. I just zip tied the wires to some place else under the seat.|

No, I didn't lose any space. And I replaced the key lock with a combo lock from tuffy. I also like that you can't open it without opening the rear gate. Makes for extra security and its pretty much hidden.
|04-25-2013 11:02 AM|
And I take it Bestops 100% definitely does not fit the 2 doors-- even without fooling around with it?
|04-25-2013 10:28 AM|
I heard someone was coming out with an under the seat box for drivers side that will work on 12s. Supposed to be out this summer. Can't recall the maker.
I have the tuffy rear cargo locking cover and the tuffy glovebox is on the way.

Has anyone here made progress with finding a secured storage option that would fit a 2012 JK? (Besides the trunk storage option)
Has anyone ever seen a backseat slideout storage option that could be faced towards the trunk?

|burton09||Yes, there is a plate that goes down behind seat. If you have a 2 door I believe you have to remove back seat to use security deck. They do have an insta trunk that works with seat in but not as much storage area.|

Some other options for creating lockable spaces:
A guy named sunnykk installed glove box, console and cubby storage boxes in this thread: Big Tuffy Install day for me today
Locking storage in rear cubby
Tuffy Locking Cubby Cover For JK - Plastic Liner?
Tuffy Security Tailgate Enclosure for JKU
Underseat Security Box?
I've got the Tuffy concealed carry box and the Tuffy security deck in my JKU. Both fit well and work exactly the way I wanted em to. Good stuff.

|ESP||I don't have any experience with a lock box but the tuffy ones seem to be on the forums here pretty frequently.|
