ADVICE wanted. Smittybilt, Tuffy and Bestop's TJ Security drawer

Difference between Smittybilt, Tuffy and Bestop's TJ Security drawer. They both are 16ga. steel. Need one, but price difference is huge. 2005 TJ Wrangler Sport. And I'd anyone knows what they are calling a "flip seat". Any help is appreciated

Google is your friend. Tuffy even has an animated GIF showing what a flip seat is: http://www.tuffyproducts.com/t-flipseat.aspx (1st Google result, BTW).

Haven't seen the Smitty version, but it sounds like the Tuffy version is definitely nicer than the one from Bestop:

Both will get the job done, but it sounds like Tuffy's drawer is made a bit nicer and has more room. Going to pick up one of the Tuffy boxes at some point myself.

I have 2 Tuffy products and getting a 3rd. I say worth the money. But never had the others I have them all keyed to same lock. Hope that helps.

Thanks everybody!

Decided on the Tuffy (With the Flip Seat!). More room evidently, better made. But you gets what you pays fo'.
