Tailgate Security Enclosure Question

Hey guys, I am getting ready to buy soft doors and a frameless top for the summer. I want to bring them with me when I go out, but want to reduce the risk of the stuff getting snatch out of the back.

I was thinking about buying the Tuffy tailgate enclosure to run under the rear deck cover.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/14036_0012_07.htm

Does anyone have this brand/model who can tell me if its worth buying.

Any suggestions on products that you may have other than this?

Features I am looking for are...

- Can be locked either on its own or with the locking of the tailgate.
- Can't gain access by folding the seats down.
- Can be used with a desk cover.
- deck height is almost to the top of the tub for max storage space.
- easy to install / remove so I can take it out while running the hard top (30 minutes or less, not including original installation).

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I have it and it is pretty nice. There are a few gaps in it that allow dust in, but that is to be expected. It is very easy to install, and takes about 10-15 minutes to remove completely. I have a 20# powertank in mine and had to reinforce the top to do so. If you don't have a subwoofer then there is a gap along one side. I just added a small piece of metal to cover the hole.

As for your questions.
Locking the tailgate locks the enclosure. There is no way to get in it without going through the tailgate.
You cannot access the inside with the seat being down.
A Toneau cover fits right over it.

I have this one.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/14036_0003_07.htm

Best thing I ever bought, I got lucky and found a local one on craigslist. Top lifts up and slides out, then four wing nuts holds the part behind the seats. Two sides stay bolted in at all times. Very sturdy and secures very nice. It shoulf be low enough for tonneau cover, but never looked into it since I dont have one.

I was wrong. I have the same one that halo has.

I cant speak to the other one. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the follow-up. That's even better IMHO. If you both have the same one, like it and its a brand I was already looking at, I'll see about that one instead. Either way, good feed back.

Thanks again guys.

I appreicate the heads-up, but with the JKU, I don't see this being a problem. The soft doors are 2 pc and fit in the back with zero issues with the rear seats in place as is. The soft top I am getting is frameless, so that should just fold up and stow back there too.

Yea, I hear you. When I had my 2dr, I just used the deck cover with no back seat. It wasn't secure, but at least it wasn't blowing all over the trail. Never thought about adapting a 4dr security box. Would have been a good idea if the base dimensions were right.
