|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.

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

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.

Gonzo, quick question, is the top of the enclosure easy enough to remove and store in the Jeep? I am thinking about getting this, but have concerns about the sound from the sub. I figure with the top off of the enclosure the bass should be okay, and by keeping it in the Jeep it's ready to roll when I need it. Thoughts?

|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.|

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.|

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!|

How much space is there between back of the rear seats and the tailgate?
|06-05-2012 05:27 PM|
Yup, that's the same one I just installed.
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).
Down side I did not expect: I knew the sub-woofer would be enclosed, but didn't expect my jeep to make me look like some dude with a rattling trunk as I blast some Red Man with my doors off. I had to turn the bass way down and move my fade to the front. That said, I still like to crank toons and I can, I just wasn't expecting it.
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.

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?
