Tuffy underseat box

I have a 2012 JKU with seat side airbags. Has anyone installed a Tuffy box under the drivers seat? If so what did you do with the seat wiring?

Lots of folks have installed Tuffy, or, like myself, Bestop underseat lockboxes with side airbags. No problem.

Tuffy installation directions don't mention the wiring. But, here's a link to the Bestop instructions which give good directions (illustrated) on what to do with the wiring!

If you haven looked at the Bestop box, which cost half what the Tuffy costs, you should consider it.

I have the Tuffy under my passenger seat with side airbags. I want to say that Tuffy has instructions somewhere, but it is pretty intuitive anyway.

Have them under both of my seats. Removed the wiring mounting plate and discarded. Zip tie the wires to opposite side in one of the available holes.

Easy Peasy.

I have the Tuffy box, there is a bracket that holds the connector off the floor under there. I took that off then zip-tied the connector up to make sure it stayed above the box and not in a the 'flood plain'.

One thing to note is that my Tuffy boxes, rattle like a son of a gun. I recommend putting the 'extra' security bolt through the floor (silicone it good). Otherwise the dang thing will rattle and clank.

Other than that, I love the boxes, great secure out of sight storage!

I have two (2) one under each seat. They are quiet as two teenagers stealing money outta Moms purse.
I cut a strip of rubber padding off my workshop floor and stuck it under the back bottom of each box.
I couldn't be bothered with the "security screw"

"Manufactured by Tuffy in the USA." I'll take this one.
