DV8's JLRS-01 rear locking storage offers security and protection when going topless. Made from 1/8" steel, DV8's storage compartment offers access behind the rear seats by a small locking door and large open access from the rear of the Jeep.
The JLRS-01 design will allow you to close the rear door of the Jeep and use your factory door locks to lock and secure the compartment. With a 150lb rating, you can use the deck lid for storage as well!
This is designed for the 4-Door applications only and can be used with or without the factory hardtop.
So I took a huge plunge and purchased this with no true details or reviews to note. I will first start by saying that it is not designed to fit any JLU that has the subwoofer, as it’s about 3/4” too shallow to mount up. Though they could have made it universal fit. However, the issue doesn’t stop there. They lack any mounting holes to allow the hard-top knobs to set in, therefore you are either drilling the deck you just purchased, or sawing off the knobs of an expensive hard-top. This is also not designed to work with soft-tops, so it’s quite limit to who it’s marketed for. Throw in the fact there is no seal under the tailgating sides to keep from scratching the paint off, keep a water tight seal, or reduce vibration. Furthermore, it lacks rubber seals between metal panels to avoid any vibration noise.
The one upside, is that it’s constructed from very heavy steal materials, so if you are one of the select few that this would fit, then you will enjoy the sturdiness at least.
*should have designed a “over the fender” shelf that could work in tandem to improve storage space that is now secured. That’s just too practical for DV8 though.
