I've got both the glove box and underseat storage. Neither rattle. The glove box latch is adjustable. If it rattles, tighten it up a bit.

I have both Tuffy under seat concealed carry in my 2014 JKURX and no rattles. I did line mine with toolbox liner installed with spray adhesive.

Mine rattles like hell and I can't figure it out. Is it the ball bearings? The bolts? Ahhhhh I don't know!!!

Yup, lined mine with some bubble wrap and an old towel. Makes it quiet

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.

jmb6420 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.

Paper clip...............
It's sold as a gun safe for your car,truck, jeep you can lock anything in it. The cable end after you loop it around your seat anchor or something that's not moving the cable end locks inside the box. Here is a link with some pictures-http://www.amazon.com/GunVault-NV200-NanoVault-Style-Pistols/dp/B00384755S/ref=pd_sim_sbs_sg_1.

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.

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.

ooooh ok- never knew that, thanks! Did you notice a difference in storage space now (not that there was ever a lot)? I thought it was just a tray top that could be taken on and off easily... I usually store a lot and roll the seats up a lot for longer stuff

And with the top down the lock buttons are disabled so you can't just hit the unlock button.

Just to be clear, I'm talking about the locking lid for the rear cubby hole thingy.

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.

DozerJK 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?

Ok, thanks. Seemed like a no brainer that it would, just didn't see anywhere mention it.

Bought a new soft top off of C.L. This weekend & now thinking about both these options. Does the security deck plate go down behind the back seats so you can't just fold them down & reach under it with the top down? Seems like a dumb question, Just couldn't tell when looking at them online.
