|Y-Guy||Thanks again for measuring again, I'll see how far the seats go back based on some of the methods here, should give me some idea if 2" will be enough - but anything is better then the way they are right now.|

It almost reminds me of the space behind mini pick-ups.

|SBL||I have been trying to come up with ideas for this area since I installed the Tuffy. Emergency top, rope and such so far but will come up with something a little more substantial when I figure out what I want to put back there.|

|Y-Guy||Thanks, that is a big help/relief. I can't do the Tuffy box this summer but gives hope that maybe I can keep the seats modified when/if I get a Tuffy.|

panthermark, maybe you can answer a question for me. I'm looking at tilting the rear seats back a bit so they are a bit more comfortable. I can see the space in the lower part of the seat, is there any space from the back of the seat to the front panel or are they pretty much butted together? If there is any space, any idea how much there is?

I bought some felt fabric at a local fabric store, cut it into two pieces, and I use it to roll up my soft top windows. It's a DIY window roll, like the ones you can buy, but it only cost me $5. I use two nylon straps to keep it rolled up. It fits perfect between the tuffy bulkhead and the rear seat. I also keep the tailgate bar and rear window clips back there. Makes it easy to put the windows back in, no matter where I am.
There's still plenty of room back there even with the window roll. I sometimes stick my CB antenna back there.

I would not do it if I had something back there that i was worried about. This would be for special occasions when the hard top was on, but I wanted the freedom panels off, and I had people in the rear seats (where I usually put them when I'm by myself...but there will be a car seat back there soon.)
Right now the soft top is on, and the freedom panels are sitting on the roof of the hard top in the garage.

|woansleftpeg||If you remove the front panel doesn't that mean that someone can access the stuff in your trunk by just folding the rear seats forward?|

The one thing that I didn't like about it was the inability to store my freedom panels without having to squeeze them in and slam the door on them (thus rubbing away the paint.
It never occoured to me to remove that front panel.
It might be time to glue some velcro straps to to that panel...or see if the rear window can simply hang there.

I run the Tuffy box and a bikini top in the summer. I stash a nylon half-Jeep cover, old towels (in the event of rain and bikini-only, just to wipe things down), some bungee cords. I don't store anything I would mind being stolen, like the stuff you list. That's just the kind of little, but important stuff, theives of opportunity pluck.

|Beastmaster||I like this idea, so far, for various reasons, I've been installing and removing the front piece to have more cargo area. I wonder if one of those MOLE tailgate things would work there.|

Space between JKU rear seat and Tuffy trunk enclosure
So I finally got my soft top on....love it (even if I have to go back and re-install the side windows). Can't say enough about the flexibility of the soft top and the spiderwebshade.
Anyway, I have a question. For those with the Tuffy trunk enclosures, have you managed to do anything with the wasted space between the rear seat and the enclosure? I could not get my freedom panels to fit there, but I'm wondering if anyone has managed to get somthing useful there? Right now I've stashed my fire extinguisher, rope, atlas, and roadside kit in that spot...but I would love it if somehow for instance the rear softtop window (or all three windows) could be easily hung there.
