Does anyone have one of these installed? Does it really seem secure enough to be a deterrent? I know if a thief wants to they can grab anything, but at least this might thwart the "oh look there is a cb just hanging there" type of thief.

DO IT! I love mine. it is SOOO much better than the cheap plastic factory crap! It seems well built and the only complaint that I have with it is the seatbelt retaining straps are not very durable.
It is built well enough that I don't mind leaving my GPS receiver and other electronics in it while I am away.
Another vote for it. Its pretty heavy duty. It would take some time to get into. One thing though. The key lock if you are going to leave the top down make sure you keep it greased with something. Tumbles start to stick if they get wet.
yeah man having the cd player in the console is great, especially on the highway cause you dont have to lean us to change it, and if it starts raining just close the top. and im pretty sure about the only way to get into the console woldbe to cut into it.

It is very well built. It is worth every penny of the three hundred dollars.
I also don,t think much of the seat belt retainers. I got the ten inch wide model ands it squeezes the seat belts between the console and the seat. I do not even use the retainers.
I have the center console and the trunk Tuffy boxes and I could not be happier. Highly recommended and you would definetly have to work at these for awhile if you wanted to get in. Peace of mind that is well worth the price.

With my Tuffy I bought the Seatbelt extenders from 4WD hardware. THey make using the seatbelts much easier.
I liked the console so much that I bought the full length underseat rear drawer. I still need to install it and get a lock that is keyed the same as my console.

BTW Krage motorsports ( http://www.jeepdoc.com/ ) had the best price when I bought my console. It took a couple of weeks to get it from them but I thought that it was worth it.
I have a "normal" center console, it's not very secure I mainly just use it as a cupholder, armrest, and sunglass holder. I liked the tuffy I just can't afford that right now.
Anyhow I use those seatbelt extenders with my console and they work out great. Only problem I have is the seatbelts kind of flop onto the seat, I thought about screwing them to the console so they'd stay standing upright, but then again it's not a life or death problem. ;p

Another +1 for the Tuffy. I'm not very mechanically inclined and the install was very easy. Three holes drilled and walla. I have an Alpine head unit that I hard wired the iPod wire into the Tuffy. One small hole to drill. I found that I don't need the seat belt extensions but YMMV. Not the best pic but
