tailgate security enclosure is a simple, hinged design that creates a lockable
storage area completely protected on all sides. The patented design works in
conjunction with the lockable vehicle tailgate and the existing vehicle
geometry to secure the area created without the need for a rigid front panel
connection, any releasable lock mechanisms or other unnecessary hardware. The
assembly top does not open like Tuffy deck enclosure part #173 and is
outfitted with tie-down anchors. It works in the unlimited 4-door model with
the rear seat.
Quickly and easily
installs with standard hand tools in the 4 door Jeep models with an OEM hardtop
or softtop. It will work in vehicles equipped with or without the subwoofer and
functions with the OEM storage cover or the Tuffy Cubby Cover, part #143. Assembly can
be easily removed for transporting larger items.
On vehicles with
power door locks, arming the security alarm automatically disables the power
door lock switches and ensures the tailgate and Tuffy enclosure are secure,
even on softtop models or with the top removed. Any items stowed on top of the
enclosure must also be securely fastened to the vehicle.
Jeep JK Unlimited Wranglers do not come equipped with cargo loops in the bed or
the OEM bolts which Tuffy uses to secure the front panel of the Security
Tailgate Enclosure. On those models, this alternate mounting kit is required to
secure the front plate of the Security Tailgate Enclosure to the OEM outer seat
mount nuts (securing the seat mount to the floor) Alternate
Mounting Kit for Part #310.
