JASPER anyone have an under seat locking drawer? -

posts #6-7... look who had the answer..

JASPER i can see that working for the front seats because they just bolt straight down. With the rear seat, I'd have to raise the actual locking brackets on the rear and mounting/pivoting brackets on the front. The hardware from the under seat drawer does all this, and bolts to the original holes iirc. The part I'm not sure of is when the seat gets locked into place, if those brackets hold the seat up, or if the seat will bow down because there is no support of the drawer. All because i dont want to spend $400 for the whole tuffy set up but would like the storage space underneath..

daanbc Im am not formiliar with how the tuffy bolts to the jeep. I would play it safe and use the existing holes in the jeep and just use longer/stronger bolts and a some kind of bobylift block to raise the seat and belts.

JASPER I'm actually looking for the exact same thing. My question is, could I buy the mounting hardware for the under seat tuffy drawer, and use that as the spacer or is the drawer itself loadbearing? cause if i can pay 40 for the hardware with no drawer and have the seat sit up high then i'll just go with that. Any thoughts? 99 tj btw..

sonofabeach Nice idea! I'm guessing you might have to extend the seat belt buckle straps depending on how high you go? Post some pics when you do it.

domeshots I am curious how you attached the tool box to the tub
06-15-2010 06:05 PM
whiteyj I have a 4" high Tuffy tool drawer under my rear seat. Had to unbolt the seat brackets from the tub and bolt them to the Tuffy box along with the center connection for the rear seat belts.
