This was my first Tuffy product, and won't be my last. The fit and finish are well done. I marked 4/5 for a mounting hole that was drilled off.
I can leave my wallet, radio face and Leatherman in it when I'm hiking or at the beach, and it's pretty secure.
The instructions point out how removing the interior dash screws for the OEM piece are horrible, and they are right. You have to reach in through the radio mounting hole, and attack them at a backward angle. After developing a raging case of carpal tunnel, I took a different approach. I cut a line 1" around the inside of the plastic OEM glovebox (after I removed the door) with a dremel. That way i just pulled out plastic bin and attacked those screws with a socket, through the big glove box opening. Way better than reaching in by the radio.
My only gripe is that two mounting holes, inside on one side, are 1/8" - 1/4" off and I can't get a drill in there to fix it. All the other screws and mounts are right on, and it holds just fine.
