Price: $115.00
Pros: Installed really easy, came with tool to set well nuts, nice little secure area with soft top jeep, great finish
Cons: Not hinged to put deck upright
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Installed in 20 min, no drilling required. The install utilizes holes that are already in the tj. I keep a Allen key in the back incase I want to take the insta truck out for any reason. Kind of pricey for some sheet metal but it's nice to have a secure part of the jeep.

Pros: Secure, pretty easy install.
Cons: self-tapping screws won't stay in; big gaps if carpet isn't installed
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Self-tapping screws won't stay engaged.

Use 3/8" foam weatherstripped to fill up the gaps if you don't have your carpet installed.

Price: $120.00
Pros: Totally secure, better than the Add-a-Trunk, no key, easy install, easy removal, stronger than it looks.
Cons: "Bushing" tape gets hammered pretty easily. But that's replaceable.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had the plastic, pop-a-pin, "flip-lid" style Add-a-Trunk in my '02 and someone used a saw to cut the pins down the sides to gain access. The InstaTruvk has no pins and is totally secure unless someone picks your lock on your tailgate. When I bought it, I was told you could take a SawzAll to it and it would just "skip" because of the metal they used. I tested that theory and it's true. Even though I have 2 20mm ammo cans in the back with padlocks on them, I consider the InstaTrunk the only truly secure place in my Heep. Great product for any and every Jeeper!

Pros: Easy Install
Cons: A little small
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed this on my 2002 sport. It provided the only secure spot in the vehicle. It was very easy to install and also very easy to remove and reinstall. If you need a place to secure things, this is an excellent product to purchase.

Bestop Instatrunk
Pros: Easy install, nice fit and good looks.
Cons: Should be a heavier gauge metal, could be bigger.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I would have liked to see this made with slightly thicker metal. The 16 gauge feels a little weak. It could be taller too.

Overall though, very easy to install. It is fitted for the Jeep perfectly, and it looks good.

Bestop Instatrunk
Pros: Well designed, tough, cheap, unobtrusive
Cons: Not much space, large gap arount the door striker that is hard to seal
Recommended? Yes

Comments: For the money and how easy the Instratrunk is to install I would say it is great. It fit great, was designed well and never rattled or blocked anything. I have recently sold my box and gone with an Olympic trunk for more space.

Bestop Instatrunk
Pros: secure small storage, cheap, easy to remove
Cons: small and tall
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If you have a lot of stuff it has to be stacked vertically and held in while you close the tailgate door. But for most things it's pretty convenient. It can be removed without any tools if you need to use the whole bed.

Price: $100.00
Pros: Place to lock up valuables, very easy install, looks factory, easy to remove
Cons: Not as big as expected
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the instatrunk so I'd have a place to lock up small stuff. It's a little smaller than I was expecting, but it does the job. I cut mine so that it would work with a tuffy underseat drawer.
