Captain Ahab I built a custom storage that depends on the tailgate lock. Pics on my profile.

Pinelogcreek Same boat here, I use a surplus rocket can, painted with rustoleum beadliner, and lined with foam (think pelican case). The cable is attached via u bolt and the other end locked to the rear seat. On the front I used another u bolt for the lock. Both u bolts run through the handles. Pelican cases seem to scream money to me so I avoid them. This setup is still watertight/dust proof with a little silicone on the bolt heads.

Springtail How about a locked pelican case and a kryptonite cable lock around the roll bar.

If you want stealth...how about a beat up padlocked metal cooler with the same cable lock. Some people are very protective of the their beverages.

I think you answered the question in your original post. A 100lb dog is usually pretty good protection for stuff in a car.

Neral22 You can always disconnect the power lock to the hatch if you have it. I didn't so no need to worry for me. I built mine with my father with angle iron, wood, and vinyl.

It's for an Incase Sling pack. I need to check the dims but the smallest size might work. Anchored to the trunk gives me some confidence.

WhiskeyMike Is the cubby area large enough? This secures it. JK Locking Cubby Cover for Jeep Wrangler, JK

Or consider getting a small lockbox or safe with holes in the bottom, and then attach to the tie down points in the rear. I would change the bolt to an 8.9 grade. Here's one lockbox, No. 30 Tool Box with Mounting Brackets | Top Mount Boxes| Northern Tool + Equipment. Or safe Amazon.com: First Alert 2025F Anti-Theft Safe, 0.28 Cubic Foot, Gray: Home Improvement

You might want to cover it in carpet so it's invisible and your dog doesn't slip when standing on it.

Gregbr I carry a lot of camera gear around with me as well and sometimes will use one of the PacSafe mesh bags. They work ok although the bag needs to be sized right and done up tight otherwise it's still possible to get things out through the mesh itself. Here's one example of their 5 or so sizes:

derf A Tuffy center console or glove box may be what you need.

I have the center console and it's cavernous. There's room in there for a good size DSLR and a couple of lenses and/or a few other things.

Windows

Being a professional photography, I sometimes leave over $20k in camera gear in my Jeep. I have added more tint to the windows. All windows are totally dark and even the drivers and passenger windows are darker than what is permitted (knock on wood for a ticket). I make sure I place everything in the back area where no one can see in. I don't know of any locking locker big enough to put all my gear in. I also try never to go anywhere where I am not taking my gear with me.

Neral22 Will it fit in this?

Have you tried looking at Tuffy Security Products. I have one of their consoles and I love it.
