Locking storage installed.

I finally found an inexpensive locking tool box for the rear!

I purchased a LARIN vehicle storage box from Costco. I made some mounting brackets to mount it on the forward rear seat mounts. I also added a tie down point on each side because I lost the ability to use the seat mounts as tie downs with the box in stalled. The box is 12”x13”x35” and it fits great and it does not take up much space in the rear. It actually hangs over the rear foot wells slightly, but allows access from behind the seat for some added "slightly hidden" storage. I may modify the mount at a later point to make it easier to remove/install. It is connected through the 2"x2"x12" aluminum bracket I made with (4) U bolts that bolt inside the tool box.

I still have room for the dog!! I did not want a large box, but just something to keep valuables (air pump, straps, tools and laptop (daily driver)) in while running with soft top. I think this will work just fine.

Inside the box I have a metal plate that the cable runs through so somone can't just simply cut the box where the cable goes into it.

Here's a pic of the 32", the 44" could fit, it would be a tight squeeze.

tiger3 I am thinking about putting one of these on the inside. Similar to JeeperJake's idea. I want secure storage, but do not want to lose all the dog storage with a box taking up the entire bed area.

https://www.tuffyproducts.com/p-192-...m-lockbox.aspx

I am thinking this may fit inside, but have not measured it. It may not fit the budget.....
I am surprised no one has come up with a box that sits close to the front seats that uses the back seat brackets as mounting and does not consume the entire area.

Doug Burgess I have to say that the install of the Tuffy 275-01 was pretty damn easy.
Directions were fairly easy to follow.

JeeperJake update on this smaller metal box install:


So far, despite its size, it secures surprising amount of stuff I like to have keep under lock.

Total cost: under $10 for mounting brackets; about 2 hours install time figuring out how to do it the way that works best.
Bolted to seat brackets. May upgrade padlock with heavier design.

Had to line the lid/lock with a little rubber seal strip to keep it quiet.

kbwwolf FYI about the Tuffy box lids: there are two hex-head bolts on each side (in the wider cutout areas) that hold the mounting guides on...if someone removes those, they can remove your lid and get into the Tuffy box.

Found this out while attaching some tie-down anchors to my lid.

Spot welding or a bit of red Loctite will fix the problem.

Took the back seat out completely as none of my friends are young enough to be able to get in there without breaking a hip.

Totally unacceptable. Order cancelled(or hopefully cancelled).
Now I have to look elsewhere....what a PITA....
I ordered about father's day, and it came last week.

This was from 4WP.

Well hang in there. Most of what I order has to go on back order as well since the demand is very high for the cool stuff.

flyhigh I'd recommend the tuffy. Its not super easy to take the deck out and put it back in. I have to fiddle with it for awhile as the sides are actually wider than the deck. You kinda have to hook one side and then pull it to the other. But overall its a nice piece, doesn't rattle, and will serve me well.

Pull it back and lift slightly, then push forward until the rollers disengage.

How well did the Full trunk seat on the 2-door?

I have my rear seat out and would like a closed trunk.

If you have a four door, this will fit behind the bask seats. If you have a two door, the back seat needs to be removed.

Lock box/"trunk"?

Ladies and Gentlemen...
Recently purchased a 2012 4 door Sahara.
Looking for a recommendation for a secure lock box/"trunk" that will hold something just a bit larger than a piece of carry on luggage.
Thanks in advance.
Doug B.
