Tuffy security deck question

Does anyone know if the hardtop can be put over the mounts for the tuffy security deck 275 on the 2015 jku? Not sure the top will seat right. I was thinking about getting one but not sure if I feel like taking it off/on every time I got topless. Thanks

I had the same question and only found a pic showing the tuffy brackets on top of the hard top lip. So it appears you would have to remove the bracket, place hardtop on then put the brackets back on. Again, this is only an observation from a pic so I can be completely off target.

Forget where online i found the pic.

I have no personal experience with the Tuffy 275, but when I was researching before deciding to install the Tuffy 299 I read that the 275 can be mounted underneath the hardtop. While this may be true, I was concerned about the weatherstripping deforming to accommodate the Tuffy enclosure. I guess it wouldn't be a problem if you never removed the enclosure.

I have the Tuffy deck and put the brackets over the hardtop. You might be able to go under but I would worry about fit and leaking.

Once you get it installed the first time and lined up it is not a huge deal at all. I switch hard top to soft top over the summer. With the hard top on i leave the shelf in and take out the back panel behind the seat to give more storage room.

Let me now if you have any other questions that I might be able to answer about it.

I have the Tuffy 275 and the brackets have holes that allow you to bolt them to the tub through the wheel wells. Once bolted, I cut the 'ears' on the brackets that went up and over the rail so they no longer interface with the top at all. It was more work upfront, especially pulling and reinstalling the wheel well liners, but it's been attached for over a year with the hardtop going off and on again regularly and I've never had to mess with it again. Works great.
