My only concern would be corrosion due to outside. If you don’t leave it installed year round and graphite the lock mechanism you may be fine. I know me and my luck though hahaha
The lock mechanism is fine as long as the cover is on it. I had mine on the vehicle for 3 years, the only issue as I mentioned was with the pins that hold it in the hitch tube.

What about Tuffy console safe? I think someone put one (or something similar) in the Jeep. It was quite a while back; he said installation was a pain. Anyone has one? Any opinions? Weather is warming up, and as usual I say I’ll never put the doors back again. (Until it gets to 40 or below in fall...).
My one pleasure is driving her back and forth to the hospital every day. This COVID has everyone whupped :( might as well install something.

I used https://www.lockerdown.com/i-118-ex...70ex-includes-the-rubicon.html?ref=category:3
More expensive but a solid quality piece. Easy install. Search for discount code.

I'm still undecided on a solution:

Tuffy has a nice sealed box for a better price:

Diabolical has better coverage, built in tie downs, flip top, and access from the front seats:

Hope everyone has been staying safe, kind of going stir crazy with little to do. Think having to cut our spring break trip to Arizona short has made it worse. Daughter and I left just before the S hit the fan. Was able to get a few days wheeling in Tuscan, but then had cancel the last 5 days of the trip and head home (would have worked our way up the the South Rim). Once we can get out again will either be finishing the Arizona trip or will head to the Dakotas, Wyoming and Montana.

Here are a couple photos from the back side of Mt Lemmon in Tuscan.

My experience - I looked at both and went with Tuffy. I couldn't justify spending that much for the Diabolical. The Tuffy top lifts up or can be removed in 15 seconds. The front panel can be removed in about a minute for a little bit longer load (really not much room in a 2 door). Not sure of the value of the front seat access because you really can't reach it unless it is right next to the seat.
