Tuffy Console\'s Really Work!!
If anyone is on the fence about installing a Tuffy Security box in their jeep, I'm here to tell you they work...very well! I've only had my CJ running for a couple of months, just taking short drives and getting some smaller problems ironed out. Decided a couple of weekends ago that I wanted a stereo for the jeep. Nothing extravagant, just something that would play cd's and that I could hear while driving. Ended up buying a $150 Pioneer and a couple of Polk speakers, and installing them in both a Tuffy center console and the Tuffy rear speaker boxes. Well, after about 1 week with the stereo installed, I go out Monday morning to go to work and notice that the passenger door on my CJ is open. I had driven it the night before and know that it wasn't left open, otherwise it would have been flying open around every turn. Luckily I had the Tuffy box locked and nothing left out in the open except a fire extinguisher. Also glad I installed an ignition kill switch in the Tuffy box and a battery cut off switch wired through the jeep, with the key being in the box also. Nothing was taken from the jeep, but the punk who was in my jeep tried to pry the top of the console off, but didn't succeed. It's bent a little, and doesn't shut smoothly, but it did the job well.
Unfortunately, I left my other vehicle (00 Chevy 2500 Silverado) unlocked and they got into the factory console and took some things. Not much, with the most expensive item taken being a 4 cell Mag-Lite. Just the aggravation of knowing someone was in your vehicles that wasn't supposed to be. Oh well, next time they'll meet me with a 12 gauge and a .45. Hope the Mag-Lite was worth it!
