    JL JOURNAL : TUFFY JL Wrangler Security Deck Enclosure Installation

    As anyone who knows Cindy and I well, you know that the we love to run our Jeeps doorless and topless and for the times when we have to run a top, we prefer a soft top. Unfortunately, even with a soft top on, there's little to nothing that would prevent a would be thief from taking whatever he wants from the inside our Jeep and it's for this reason that we've always installed a Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure or at least, in all our JK's. Of course, even with a hard top on, having a deck like this provides the added benefit of making it easier to pack, stack and organize all our gear. Needless to say, adding a Tuffy Deck on our brand new, Jeep JL Wrangler was high on our to do list and in this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you'll get to see just how easy it is to install.



    BUY a TUFFY Deck here:
    https://amzn.to/2R32kbX


    TUFF Security Deck Enclosure Highlights
    • Made out of welded, 16-gauge steel and is covered with a durable textured powder coat finish.
    • Offers over 20,000 cubic inches of secure storage when the JL tailgate is closed and locked.
    • Does not rely on the wheel well to create an enclosed space adding an additional level of security.
    • The deck and rear panel can be opened up and propped up with ease and without the use of tools.
    • The rear panel can also be removed with ease and without the use of tools.

    NOTE: Tuffy makes 2 different Security Deck Enclosures for the JL Wrangler, a standard one and one for a JL equipped with the Alpine subwoofer. It is important for you to order the correct one for your JL.

    Wow, that is pretty easy to install- with the right bolts. Looks like it was warm when you installed it.

    Haven’t seen Moby in a bit. Nice sound

    Awesome video, that looks like a pretty simple and useful install.

    Do you think there is enough room left over for an air compressor mounted on the left using a mount like the one from M.O.R.E.?

    If not, are you planning on running an air compressor and where are you planning on mounting it?

    Edit: How does it effect the sound from the subwoofer?

    I was wondering the same thing, also how bad does the box rattle

    Thanks. There was a time when Tuffy had changed the way they made these on the JK and to the point where I no longer liked them. The JL deck is a lot like what they used to offer way back in the day and it's a much better design.

    Glad we could help with it

    You know, I don't think I ever measured but that sounds like it could be right. Gotta sit below the lip of the tailgate for it to work.

    The smaller one, I would say yes. The standard 50 qt one, I don't think so or at least, not lengthwise and under the roll bar. Either way, it'd be hard to open up with a top on (experience with my JK) and I wouldn't recommend it.

    LOL - we filmed the install back before we headed out to SEMA. You can still see some fall colors on the trees.
