Anybody have this installed?

Would like to see a photo and some feedback. Photos online are installed in TJ's. Wondering how the grab handle works out.

Also, I have been unable to find a YJ specific under seat lock drawer?

Trying to keep the interior open as possible, but need a reasonably secure place to lock up a wallet and phone.

Don't cheap out but the tuffy parts I had someone try to break into my tuffy console twice and failed twice

I have been looking at it for years, but haven't gotten it yet. I have the Smittybilt locking steel console and I agree, tuffy quality beats it hands down.

Love the tuffy stuff. I had the rear drawer in my LJ. That was the only one I paid full price for, though. I kept a search alert on Craigslist and scored an 8 inch full console and the behind the seat trunk box keyed alike for $150. I saw the glove box for $40 a while ago, but I don't like the look of it.

UPDATE: Tuffy glove box installed. It's an impressive piece, very solid.

Removing existing glove box was a bitch. No way to get a good bite on the 4 screws under the dash. I ended up ripping the plastic glove box out and accessed the screws through the glove box.

Install was fairly easy. I did drill out a little more clearance for the mounting screws. It's kinda hard to get everything to line up and the factory holes were tighter than they need to be.

The side panel doesn't quite align perfectly with the gauge cluster, but my dash may be a little tweaked. The box itself is about the same size stock but you loose the top cubby and the lock takes up some interior space. Steel grab handle and top panel are sweet utilitarian.

I did notice the door rattles a lot. I am going to add some thicker rubber bumpers to tone that down a bit.

Overall. 9/10.
They might be able to design a little more interior room above the duct work?

The factory holes in the box should be a bit bigger

They should include a small eyelet tab on the side panel you could clip stuff to.
