TJ Lock Boxes

About 2 years ago, I saw a sight that had lock boxes that were mounted between the front seats and the door lip. It was deep enough to put in small items and had a secure lock. I've since changed computers and I lost the link.

Can anyone help me out?

Thanx

Tuffy makes a mini lockbox that will fit in that area, and they also make an under-seat drawer.

Sounds pretty convenient... I wouldn't mind having one for a little tool box.

Thanks for the responses.

But, what I saw then was different than the Tuffy's because they were tapered to fit angle between the seat and the wall of the door lip, were a an inch or so deeper. Plus, the hinge was on the side and not on the end. That way when they opened, you could access it much easier. Plus, they made one for each side, the driver and passenger.

You could put anything in there from a camera, gun, gps, wallet, cell phone, etc..

Again, thanks so far.

That'd be perfect if they were for an '03-up. However, they do list one for that year range.

I do have to note, though, that it doesn't seem like it would work well for firearm storage in a concealed carry capacity. For more secure containment, though, it'd be perfect! Great find!

That's the one! You're right, It's not secure enough for me for CCW storage, but when I have the top off, the Tuffy glove box and this will at least keep the basics secured. The underseat lock box with my lock upgrade works for the CCW.

My next posting will be my custom overhead tray that I'm working on. 'Til then.

Again, many thanks.

Tahoez58: consider keeping your concealed weapon on your person while driving. There are a lot of very comfortable carry options that don't get pinched by your pants shifting on you while sitting, or covered by the lap belt. I suggest this because it removes the need for the handgun to be visible at all when you park and get ready to exit the vehicle, which is the case if it remains locked up in a box somewhere. Now, on that bent, the lock boxes work very well for storage, though I personally feel that they are too much of an impediment in obtaining the gun should you need it in a threatening situation. You don't want to be fumbling with a latch or keys when you're already nervous and you have to make a split-second decision.

As always, practice proper gun safety, and check the laws in your state regarding transport and storage of a concealed weapon in a vehicle. Some places don't make it as easy or clear-cut as others!

Sundowner, thank you, I agree completely. I only consider not having a weapon on my person when I enter a vehicular area or facility that prohibits it. Other than that, it is always accessible at all times. I've seen some very good mounts out there to ensure that it is readily available but also secure that it doesn't fall out when you get on some road or trail that isn't smooth. And as I said in my last post, the new overhead system that I'm working on will also have such capability. And if it works like I think it will, I might even quit my day job and make them full time. lol

But I'll keep you informed.

Again, thanks.

By all means, keep me informed...a good portion of my income is from firearms instruction, so if there's a new product out there that works well and serves a need, I'll be happy to see it.

Those little storage boxes look interesting. But given the location, I have a question. Does anybody that has one of these storage boxes also have rocker guards that also bolt up from under the tub? My rockers do and I wouldn't want to get these boxes and find out I couldn't bolt them down because of interference from the bolts holding my rockers on.

Not quite what the OP wanted, but what about:

or
