Locking storage

Has anyone come across a set of lockable storage boxes that sit in the wheel well - that are not outrageously priced? (Tuffy) I don't want speaker boxes, I need lockable storage for tools and such..wheel wells are the only place that I can mount.

On the cheap you can always use ammo cans and paint them whatever color you want or use a small toolbox and bolt it down.

I have had them for several years, used to have some pics on imagestation, but that site is closed now. My only complaint is that the seat will not recline as far as it used to, and they open length wise, which is fine, but when the top is off it would be better if they opened from the side.

If you keep your backseat in....they also sell a mate to those which goes behind the rear seat.

The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!
