This tailgate security enclosure is a simple, two-piece design that creates a lockable storage trunk completely protected on all sides. It works in conjunction with the lockable vehicle tailgate to secure the trunk area created. The enclosure maintains the use and function of the rear seat. Quickly and easily installs using standard hand tools in conjunction with an OEM hardtop or softtop. The lid removes easily without the use of tools to allow for storage of large or tall items. On Jeep Wrangler TJ vehicles, the rear tailgate lock must be locked manually with the Jeep key in order for the Tuffy enclosure to function as a secure storage device.
This trunk enclosure is really sturdy, heavy-duty. fits nice, snug and tight. It took only a few minutes to install. I just wish it was a one-piece design; it would probably be even more secure.

You're better off making your own
Obviously I bought this because I wanted to create a safe storage space in my TJ. It doesn't fit together well. It also doesn't fit into the Jeep well. There are visible gaps that allow you to see into and out of the enclosure and therefor great points for a thief to pry open the lid. The included hardware stops short of completely tightening--I'll have to spend even more money and buy my own.
Tuffy products are far too expensive to justify this shortfall in quality. This is the 3rd Tuffy product (1st: TJ Hoodlock, 2nd: TJ Glovebox) I have been burned by. BEWARE!
