homemade security??

I am in need of a security box for the back of my jeep so i can keep my tools, ropes, etc.. I was wondering if anybody has made or found a cheaper alternative for a lockable box. thanks

i just figured it out. i went out and bought a goodsized toolbox and put it in the back facing the trunk so it cant be opened unless you open the trunk. we'll see how it works.

Any thief will be smart enough to figure out after slicing your soft top that he can just pull the lever at the base of the seat and flip the seat up. Why dont you just bolt a metal tool box to the floor and then lock it with a masterlock?

I went out and bought a laptop safe for about 40 dollars that has a braided steel cable that You can wrap around the roll bar its great and it gives you some sense of security. also it has a pretty large storage area, I'm being lazy and not wanting to look for a link though,...sorry

I also needed a place to put stuff in the back of my jeep. here's what I came up with. it's a modular system that can be configured to work with or without the rear seat.
pics, these two side boxes are the only parts that are had mounted to the jeep, and I now have padded lids for them that double as arm rests for the back seat passangers when the seat is installed.

this is the "bulkhead" portion, when the rear seat is in, the bulkhead is basically an "insta-trunk".

here's a shot with the hi-lift mounted to the bulkhead, in the "trunk" position,

here's the tonneau portion, when the bulkhed is in the forward position(just behind the front seats), the tonneau part attatches to it, and covers the entire rear of the jeep.

I'm really not sure of the total cost, but I'm guessing less than $50(basically, the cost fo the materials and DIY bedliner to cover it)

I kinda did the same thing and built my own security drawers, rather than buy expensive tuffy versions. It took me a while because i've never really built anything like this, but i'm pretty happy with the outcome.
