Running your Jeep topless is one of the defining benefits that make the Wrangler so fun, unique and popular. But it also means that the security of any personal items becomes an issue, besides the limited storage the glove compartment and arm rest center console offer.
That’s when owners turn to large locking security storage boxes. This particular JLWF member mounted a Smittybilt Rear Lockable Storage Box (part number S/B2763) in the trunk of his JL. Although this is item is specific to the JK Wrangler, it bolts right into the JL with just a slight modification – by drilling 4 new holes in the bottom of the vault as shown in the install photos and instructions. The storage box was then bolted to the JL’s existing cargo floor storage pan.
The end result is a tough and secure storage box (16 gauge cold rolled steel) that also looks tough (two-stage black powder coat) and right at home in the JL Wrangler trunk.
