Jeep EnclosuresTuffy is one of the best known companies for not only providing storage options, but also security. Not everyone wants to unload everything out of their Jeep all the time, and if you do leave your Jeep, you want to make sure you’re stuff stays secure. The rear of a JK Wrangler already has a small enclosure in the floor (primarily for the wheel jack). But it uses a flimsy cover that’s merely cosmetic. The Tuffy Locking Cubby Cover (part 143-01) is made from steel, with a water seal and la Pro Guard lock. No drilling is required to install the cover, which makes it a very popular part for Jeep owners.
If you’re looking for more room, but still need security, Tuffy has you covered. Literally. The Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure (part 173-01 or 326-01) mounts higher up, level with the top of the rear tailgate. Enclosing the area from the backseat to the rear. Of course it can be locked, and it’s made from welded steel. The top can even support weight, and has a convenient tray for safe keeping small objects. No drilling is required to install it. The top can be easily removed for more space when security is not needed, or you need room for larger gear. By the way, Tuffy didn’t forget the YJ Wrangler (part 297-01) and TJ Wrangler (part 240-01), they’ve got security enclosures for those too.
Another good choice for a JK Wrangler is the Aries Automotive Security Cargo Lid (part AAA-ALC25001/AAA-ALC25000).

Fully encasing the rear area of your Jeep for security. No drilling is required to install, and it includes a lock and rubber seals to keep the box weatherproof. For the Bestop fans, they offer an Instatrunk Modular Kit (Part 42704-01). This enclosure for the back of your Jeep is made from 16-gauge steel in a matte black finish. It’s only accessible when the tailgate is open, so there’s only one access point which can be more secure, especially if you drive topless. (YJ Jeep owners use part 42700-01, and Jeep TJ’s use part 42701-01).
Jeep Storage VaultsFor those who use their Jeep daily, especially on a job site, the Smittybilt Rear Security Storage Vault is what you’re looking for. Made from cold rolled 16 gauge steel, the heavy duty drawer can support up to 350 lbs.

Jeep Cargo ProtectionSince the back area of a Jeep Wrangler isn’t that big, you’ll be using that area for everything, from a trip to the home improvement store, to getting feed for the horse, or maybe even riding with your favorite hunting dogs.

Jeep Cargo NetsCargo Nets are a good way to keep gear inside your Jeep, especially when driving at highway speeds, or on inclined trails where gear may be loose inside your Jeep.

While they are generally Jeep model specific, they are made in a wide variety of configurations.
We carry Cargo Nets by manufactures such as: Smittybilt Dirty dog Safari Straps Rugged Ridge Spiderwebshade makes a Cargo Shade (part SW1-CSJK4D-TMR) that shades the cargo area of your Jeep. In high heat areas, this can be useful to keep temperatures down where your gear is, or if you have a pet in the back. It’s easier to use than a full soft top, and much easier to install and remove. Best of all, it’s available to match your Jeep in several colors, including Black, Blue, Green, Pink, Tan and Yellow.
Jeep Deck CoversIf you just want to cover the rear cargo area with it’s own softtop, you can do that with a “Duster” cover (also known as a Deck Cover, or Tonneau Cover).
