Pros: A great place to lock up items you don't want seen or taken. Also, the center console box doesn't excite much interest, despite its obvious location.
Cons: You loose the standard cup holders.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This box is extremely sturdy. My local locksmith had never heard of Tuffy before, and actually had trouble with repairing the lock because of how it locks. About the only way to get into the security box is to either try to pick the lock (not as easy as many locks) or cut the box open.

Pros: Mostly keeps the stock look, cheaper than a full security console, seems pretty stout, not too bad to install, Great customer service from Tuffy.
Cons: Tuffy product costs seem a little high, but probably worth it since there are not many good options. I had to do a little dremel work to the stock console plastic to make it all fit and work well.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I wasn't sure how stout the 16 ga steel would be, but I was impressed with the quality of the construction when I opened the box. For someone who is about average in the way of being handy around jeeps and other DIY projects, this one was pretty easy. Took me about 2 hours but I wasn't in a rush. Would have been faster but I had to stop and call Tuffy about a question in getting the lid mounted correctly. This is great for throwing your wallet, phone, stereo detachable face, etc. The product keep the stock look intact and is cheaper than the full blown tuffy console, just make sure your model and year TJ will work. Upon installation the hinge wasn't letting the lid travel fully to open and I called Tuffy. I was given lots of help or at least some friendly moral support! Turns out that despite tons of these being sold and successfully installed by jeep owners, some fluke in my console was the odd ball one keeping the thing from fitting just right. A dremel cutting wheel and two quick notches to the stock plastic tub and I was good to go. I love my jeep...and now its even better!

Comments: When i bought my Jeep, the center console hinge and lock were screwed from a previous breakin, the tuffy insert was the easiest way to fix it. Install was straight forward and no problems were encountered. I like that it retains the factory apearance.
