BadOleRoss The security box in the back of the Jeep is not perfect but to be honest, you are not going to find one that is. But, it is easy to install and remove, provides security when you are topless or have the soft top on, and it's affordable. What I like is that when I have the ST on or am topless, I can get out of the Jeep and open the back gate and put my sunglasses and Ipod in the back and close it and don't have to worry about it. Also back there is my recovery bag, tool bag, light weight jackets, lug wrench, and my wife's Jeep hat! It's just very convenient secure storage.

Also I would assume if it's raining your top would be up and it would be a non issue. If you're concerned about getting caught in rain for a short period if time, it may protect your belongings for short while, but prolonged exposure to rain might be an issue.

Low frequency sounds travel through pretty much anything. Think about when you live in an apartment and the guy downstairs is having a party - the bass from his stereo travels through the ceiling, insulation, floorboards and your carpeting without a problem. A thin sheet of metal is going to do absolutely nothing to a subwoofer located six feet from your ears.

AZikas86 I bought this but thought It would look really odd in a JKU, so I returned it.

I have the Rugged Ridge boot cover and I reciently installed the Tuffy enclosure. I haven't tried to use both together but I think they would not work very well together with the lid on the Tuffy. If you like, I can check it tomorrow.

As mentioned, there are seals on all sides to keep the water and dust out but I wouldn't expect everything inside to stay dry in a heavy rain storm.

Gonzo hasn't been very active lately. I last talked to him in January and he said he was going through some "lifestyle changes" (I think that's code for "the wife doesn't like the Jeep so I need to get something different") Too bad, I like him and love the Geckr 4-door.
Anyway, as mentioned, sure you can take the top off and keep it in the Jeep but if I take mine off, I leave it home. The sub woofer may not be top of the line, but I haven't had any problems. I adjusted the and padded the side panel that is adjasent to the speaker and stopped the buzzing I would get at first. Even with the entire box in place (I have the full enclosure) I still get really good bass.

It's easy to remove and yes, you could keep it in the back of the Jeep and install it when you need it but I don't think it's something you really like to do. I keep mine on whenever the soft top is on. When I put the hard top on in the winter the box comes out. Takes about 5 minutes to remove and 10-15 minutes to install.

Lynskey You can deaden the overlap pieces where the 2 bolts hold it together. I used a thin piece of CCF between them and eliminated the rattles.

Timjeep Having trouble posting two pics with one post. Here's a pic of the top on the enclosure. I have a better sense of security now leaving the Jeep with the top down. In the past, if I had one stop to buy something, I wouldn't stop at two places, because of the security issues with leaving packages in an open Jeep. I leave my windows there too without worrying about them.

I have bought quite a few items for the Jeep. The enclosure is as one of my favourites. Up there with wheels & tires and the spiderweb shade.

Timjeep Not sure if OP has a JK or JKU. Here is my enclosure on a JK. With the top down, there is no problem with getting the top down. I don't notice the top sitting higher with the cover sitting on top of the enclosure. I take my time putting the top down. I try to fold it better than I did when I didn't have the enclosure and just let the top fall down between the gap between the seat and tailgate.

CTFF When folding the soft top down on top of the security enclosure can you still use a soft top boot? Such as this soft top boot? Smittybilt 600135 - Smittybilt Soft Top Storage Boot for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler JK 2 Door - Quadratec

BadOleRoss I am going to assume you want the distance between the back of the rear seat and the front edge of the box? There is about 19" between the box and the back seat. The box itself is about 12" deep. I installed one this past summer on my JKU and yes, the soft top does rest on top of the box but it is not an issue at all. Here is a picture on my soft top sitting on the box and this was before I learned how to properly fold the top!

First impression - small, but just the amount of room that I wanted for portable air, recovery/chains, gym bag, grocery storage, etc. It was easy to install, and I adapted my Safari Straps around it (not a huge problem).

You can find my pics over at the WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR JK TODAY thread.

But here's a pic again from page 92:



Okay, here's another two to get an idea of the depth:





Again, it's fairly shallow -- but that's okay with me. I wouldn't want the full-sized version as that would take up too much room in the back (I keep the back seats down).

PS Sorry, no idea about the top down issue. I hated the soft top and took it off.

GL.

How much space is there between back of the rear seats and the tailgate?

Tuffy Security Products Tailgate Security Enclosure

Does anyone have this installed? Does it interfere with putting the top all the way down? I'd think the top, in the down position, would be sitting on top of this shelf. Is that a problem?
