Price: $140.00
Pros: Able to lock up my valuables.
Cons: N/A
Recommended? Yes

Comments: With having a soft top your options are few for keeping your valuables safe.
With the Tailgate Security Enclosure you have less worries being able to lock your stuff up.

Price: $140.00
Pros: Great look, great security, easy installation.
Cons: The price may be a little high.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The installation was very easy. You don't necessarily need to cut the carpet for the install, but I did. The reason is when I would put my tool box in, the carpet would get bunched up so I cut around the base on the inside. It fits very well and looks great. I ordered it from quadratec. Great product.

Price: $140.00
Pros: Hides my stuff from prying eyes.
Cons: Need to remember to keep tailgate locked.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After bedlining my tub and installing extra thick, new carpet, the holes of the Instatrunk didn't line up without a little extra muscle....no biggie, though. Installed it alone and it was completed in no time!

Price: $134.99
Pros: place to lock stuff up when top is off
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Drills into tub behind back seat and gives you a locking trunk when the top is off. I keep my tools, tire plug kit, recovery strap, jumper cables, small air compressor that plugs into cigarette lighter, and a 60lb sand bag to add weight for driving in snow or if i manage to get it stuck in the snow.

Price: $100.00
Pros: Solid - padded inside
Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the under seat lock box. It bolts to the existing front seat bolts and remains hidden under seat. Box locks and has smooth roller rails and padded inside. Good place to keep a gun or other valuables.

Pros: easy install
Cons: really secure?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: how does it stay secure when you have no top on and doors are on with power locks? someone could just hit unlock and the tailgate would be now open.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Quick in and out
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Came with Jeep from previous owner. Easy to remove and re-install with nutserts. Sturdy steel construction. I only use it when my backseat is in. Provides great security when tailgate is locked but very little in the way of weather resistance. Lots of gaps around the sides and bottom. I could probably resolve that with some weather stripping but I don't use it often enough to care. My wife likes it so she can lock up her stuff when we go to the beach. Good product.

Cons: None.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: We were looking for an affordable way to secure items behind our back seat. The Instatrunk is great.

Price: $130.00
Pros: Easy install, thick metal
Cons: powder coat scratches easy. Didnt have enough weatherstripping and it pushes in easy
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It was easy to install. The weatherstripping was not enough to fit the entire length. Very small space for the trunk but that was known because it has to fit behind the seats

Price: $1.00
Pros: It's convenient
Cons: you can't use the whole back of the jeep to haul stuff, but you can just remove it.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It came with my Jeep, it's nice to have especially with the soft top on.

Price: $129.99
Pros: Great lockable storage. Utilizes space very efficently.
Cons: The kit should include thumb screws
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is great. It creates a lockable storage area right behind the tailgate. It utilizes the space perfectly, and doesn't interfere with the operation of the rear seat. The only thing I want to add myself is thumb screws to easily remove it if needed.

Price: $105.00
Pros: Great cheap way to add some lockable storage.
Cons: Doesn't fit flush at corners on LJ. Had to readjust to get around light box.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I liked the way this added some lockable storage. It was pretty easy to install, but would be better for a TJ (although it says that it also works on an LJ, it wasn't a perfect fit). It's pretty sturdy and doubles as a shelf when I'm working on the Jeep. With the top off, it isn't perfectly waterproof, but I added some extra weather guarding to fix that.

Pros: easy to find online install instructions even tho I got the trunk 2nd hand. NO DRILLING!
Cons: none so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just recently installed. Seems like an excellent way to have a few things "locked up and out of sight" without having to drill holes or remove any other factory features.

Pros: Sturdy metal
Cons: Pita to bolt in
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Like the product but you have to open up the wheel wells and cram your hands to bolt it in. But gives good safe storage with the top off.
