Anyone here know if the underseat locking drawers (like the bestop) will fit under a heated seat? There are a lot of wires and connections and I'm concerned it won't fit but would like a locking drawer to keep my peace keeper secure if I have to lewve it in the Jeep or some reason. I might be able to relocate the seat brains but am hoping to not have to splice or rewire. Any experience with these issues?
Thanks :confused:

The Tuffy lockbox fits just fine (at least under my passenger seat, which is heated). There is a bracket that needs to get removed and the wiring harness zip tied into a new spot. No splicing or rewiring needed.

I have the both driver and passenger lock box on my '15 JKUR. There is a bracket under each seat that holds a wiring harness. Bracket needs to be removed and I zip tied harness to seat frame. What I love about them is they blend in perfectly with jeep, can't really "see" them. Average bad person won't know they are even there looking inside.

According to the Tuffy website, this only fits up to '11 without the flip-forward seats. This is something I've wanted, but always thought they didn't fit due to the wiring underneath the seats. Did you have to call them to order? I don't want to order off the website and receive the wrong one...Thank you!

This is the exact one I ordered from Quadratec. They show it fitting through the 2015's and it was a perfect fit in mine:

Tuffy 293-01 - Tuffy Security Products Passenger Side Conceal Carry Underseat Security Drawer for 07-15 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

You do have to remove the wiring bracket and zip tie the harness to another point under the seat, but it's a super easy install.

EDIT: ahh.. I see you have a JK from your avatar. That may affect whether it fits or not... Quadratec's website doesn't show it being compatible for '11+ JKs.

I installed by Bestop box last weekend and all you have to do is remove a mounting plate and relocate the wires with supplied zip ties. The instructions were very easy to follow and the install was very easy.

I ordered the passenger seat on Sunday and hope to install it this weekend!

Good Luck!
