Questions about Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure

If this has been asked already I'm sorry as I searched threads. I wanted to know if the Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure will basically cover all my trunk area on my 2012 Unlimited. I tried the other one (Tuffy JK Tailgate Security Enclosure) and found that I'm going to lose half my trunk space and that's not really going to work for me.

Before I go through ordering again, I wanted to make sure it gets almost all of the unlimited trunk. If someone has pictures of their unlimited with one installed I would be really appreciative.

Thanks so much. Have to have some security with half doors and clear window!

:-) Debra

It encloses the entire cargo area. I can post a picture this afternoon.

It covers almost every square inch of the cargo area. The upright piece, behind the rear seat, is vertical as opposed to being angled with the seat; it leave maybe 3-4 inches between the hinge and the bottom of the panel. That space is perfect for stowing a machete, ax, and a few other things and then protects the rest of the cargo area from would-be thieves. I love mine

Hey ncb, do you think you could post a picture? I'm interested in seeing that as well

Ncb, that would be great if you posted a pic. I can't really tell from the catalog and I totally thought I knew what I was getting with the original tailgate security enclosure. Based on the feedback though I think I'm going to go ahead and return that and get this instead.

I can't keep emptying the entire Jeep every time I go to work or park - I want to be able to feel relatively secure leaving a jacket back there or something.

Pic showing the final installed product. If you don't have a factory subwoofer, you can see the cutout on the right vertical support, and you can stick your hand down into the back area when the gate is closed. I just place a rubbermaid against it so people can't grab anything small.

The 2011 and 2012 models are a little different than the earlier ones like the one pictured

Extremely helpful. Thanks everyone! I do have a subwoofer so I guess it's tailored made for that, lol. I did read on one post that I won't be able to open the bottom little door under the mat unless I take the mat out but I'm okay with that too.

Which mat do you have? I have the Quadratec mat and had to cut it to fit after installing the Tuffy box.

My mat came with the wrangler. It's reversible with carpet on one side and rubber on the other. I probably will trim it down.

If you have power door locks, couldn't someone reach in, unlock all and open the tailgate anyway?

I'm assuming the alarm would be going off, but am I missing anything else?

[EDIT] Nevermind, found the answer via Quadratec: "power lock switches become disabled after approximately 16 seconds when locking doors with the key fob"

Doh! You guys answered my questions. I installed the Tuffy Security Deck in my 2013 today and the mat did not fit at all. Right now I just have it curled up on the inside as added protection. In the newest version, it doesn't really attach to the Jeep other than the 4 bolts on the side. The lid is a bit over sized but couldn't someone just unscrew the 4 bolts and lift the lid up? It's not easy, but I wonder if it can be done in 15 minutes.

Just place a Rubbermaid against it ???

I am considering a security deck for a 2013 JKU w/o factory sub and would like to know other's solution for the open space/gap.

If you have a 2013, there shouldn't be any gaps once you're done installing it. The newer ones look different and goes over the sub completely. Both sides are symmetrical.
