|tobycat1||Look at the one i linked at the top, it is taller than the factory one( all the way to top of the tailgate) and it has a steel back to it so you can fold the back seat down Its very nice|

Off topic, but when does rausch close for the season Texapple? I have been considering make a run before the snow really hits, if you and your husband and AD are game? Maybe get penguin_in_a_cj to stop paintballing every weekend, and come out with one of his... more street worthy.. jeeps

I won mine, never installed it - sitting on the front porch
Frank's Jeep had one in it on purchase - it's on the front porch, too
....they didn't fit our Jeep'n style, but it may work well for others

|mvarnell||When you put the top down on a soft top there is a nice little area below the folded top that is enclosed with the seats in. if you lock the rear door someone has to lift up the top to even see if there is anything back there. I haven't ever lost anything back there with the door locked. Nobody seems to ever think to lift up the top and see what is hiding beneath and there is about the same amount of room a insta-trunk would give. I know it is not secure but i have never lost anything this way.|

I painted mine all black. I also bought it used for $50.

|TeeJay||The factory Jeep one's not as secure as some due to its plastic construction; however, it does go in with four thumbscrews on the inside, it works with the seat out and it has two release levers that allow you to flip it up and use it as a beer holder|

Find one used if you want one. they pop up decently often, and can be had cheap. I think I paid 50 bucks for mine, L.N.I.B, with shipping.
As stated, with a hard top on, just take it out. Its really only for the soft top, and to be honest, really only for when you have the top off, or something of somewhat decent value to lock up. Its ony about 1 foot deep, and maybe a foot and a half wide. Its deffinatly nice for summer, decently secure, but just like the console, you can always just rip the top open.
Im happy with mine in summer, comes out in winter, but I don't know that I would pay 200 bucks for one If you don't keep anything in your Jeep, save your cash. If you just want to keep something "Out of sight, out of mind," find one used.
EDIT: As stated above, it really doesn't work too well if the rear seat is removed, or folded up. It is bolted down, but without the seat there its not too much of a deterent. To be honest, I never even got the bolts for mine, keep forgetting. I just use it to keep my air compressor and jumper cables out of sight with the top down.

they are if you have a soft top and want to lock stuff in your trunk
keep in mind that
1. if the seat is down or out it becomes useless
2. if you need to put something in the trunk that needs to stand up or be higher than the rear fender wells it will take like half an hour to take it off/ put it back on afterwards
3.it makes it harder to put stuff in and out of ur trunk
but otoh if you dont have a hard top w/ full doors or a tuffy console you will not be able to leave ANYTHING of value in your jeep
its 180 and free shipping at northridge 4x4 but idk what it is elsewhere

Are these worth buying? If they are, where is the best place to get one? Thanks, Scooby
