Which one? Console insert, glove box, or locking cubby cover
I find myself needing something more secure than the stock console to store valuables such as my gps, phone etc. I understand that I have a soft top and such, but it'd be nice to have it a little more difficult than the stock stuff for protection. On a budget, like everyone else, so my question is which Tuffy product would provide the best bang for the buck.
The console insert would be the most convenient, the glove box would work well also and be equally as convenient, but the locking cubby cover in the back of the JK would be pretty secure. I'd love the whole console like I had in my YJ, but it's just not in the cards financially for me.
Does anyone have experience with any of these products? I'd appreciate any feedback you can give. Thanks in advance.
In Oregon for now
Red 09 Unlimited Rubicon - Teraflex 4inch long arm lift, Elka shocks, 5:38 gears, 37inch GY MTR's, Expedition Core front bumper with Warn PowerPlant HD, RS-E rear bumper and carrier, RS-E step rock sliders.
That certainly adds something to the equation. Does it have some type of wall against the rear seat? What would stop someone from just pushing the seat forward and getting the stuff from there if they broke into the Jeep? Just wondering.
No sweat! I keep my tool bag, ammo box/emerg kit, come-along, tow straps, gloves, etc in there, and ropes in the stash hole(makes em harder to get to when you have to unpack everything)
Mounts to pre-existing holes with 3 bolts/well nuts. (comes with well-nut driver) Piece of cake!
I have the locking cubby cover and am really happy with it. I use it to lock my laptop among other things and the glove-box just wasn't big enough. Also, I felt that the tuffy glove-box was too overt and in plain view to potential thieves. The locking cubby cover is very easy to install ... was done in about 15 minutes.
i like the fact that the glove box doesn't take up any additional room. it doesn't change my cargo area at all. yes it may make the thieves look at it vs something more hidden in the trunk but....
one of the posts i read about the glove box was about a guy that said he was driving cross country and was storing his wallet in his tuffy glove box. something happened to his keys (i can't remember) but he had a crow bar, and the knowledge of how the thing was installed. it took him 45 mins to crack into it and get his wallet out to pay for gas.
no it will not fit a laptop but it will fit my pistol.
another benifit is that i took the glove box out of my first jeep and reinstalled the original box before i traded it in. installed it again in my new one in about 30 mins.
