Hey, guys. So, today we're checking out the RedRock 4x4 Under Seat Storage Lock Box for the Driver Side, fitting all 2007 and 2010 2-Door JK Wranglers and 2007 to 2018 Ford or JK Wranglers. Now, as we all know, security inside the Wrangler is not necessarily the best when it comes to the soft top or if you drive around with the top off frequently. Making sure that your valuables are safe inside can sometimes be a little bit difficult, especially if you have a lot of that lockable space that comes from the factory like the center console and the glove box already taken up. So, having an additional storage solution that is lockable is always a great option. Now, this one specifically by RedRock 4x4 is gonna do a really good job at that. It's going to give you a discreet location to put this in and provide a lot of space for any of your smaller valuables, especially if you do carry a small firearm in your car and you're looking to make sure that it is safe, locked up, and secure. This is going to do a really good job at that.Now, I would like to mention that this is specifically for the driver's side, and we do have options available for the passenger's side as well. I would just keep that in mind when shopping around because a lot of the time we do put additional mods underneath the seat. So, if you have the driver space taken up already, we do have a passenger's side available. However, if it is open and you're looking for that storage underneath your seat, then this is going to fit actually perfectly underneath your driver's seat. Now, what I really like about this is the fact that not only is this built very well giving you that extra security, but it is going to operate very smoothly and give you a ton of space inside the storage box itself. Now, when you're all finished and you want to lock it up, it's gonna come with two keys. It's very easily lockable, very secure, and it has a small handle on the front for better accessibility when you are accessing the valuables inside the lockbox.Now, this is gonna be made of a steel material, so this will be sturdy and solid, and it's gonna have a nice textured black powder coat finish on top, not only to say sleek, indiscreet underneath the driver's seat, but this is also going to protect the steel underneath from any rust or corrosion, especially if you have the doors off the Jeep, you spend a lot of time on the trail, any kick-up that may get inside the cab area and onto the lockbox, definitely going to stand up to that.Not to mention, this is going to be pretty affordable in comparison to some of the other options available on the page, like I mentioned before, coming in at roughly $100. Now, in my personal opinion, I think that that's a really good price for the functionality and the security that this offers, especially when it comes to storing valuable items, as well as any small firearms. I think that that's definitely necessary if you're carrying any of that inside your Jeep. And this, again, is going to do a really good job at that at a very affordable price. Now, some other options available on the page may be a little bit different in the way that they're set up, this is just going to mount to the front seat bracket. Some other options may come with an additional mount on the back just for a little bit of extra security. However, those are usually going to require modification in order to get those mounted up.Now, this does not require any drilling, no modification. So, this is not going to come with that extra step of security that those more expensive choices will, but this is definitely gonna keep the valuables inside secure. Now, some other less expensive choices may not come with as many bells and whistles as you see here. As I said, this is going to come with two keys and it's also going to come with a handle on the front for better accessibility. Some other options may not have that handle. Also, it really comes down to your personal preference. I think if you're looking for a solid middle ground, if you're looking for something that's going to provide a lot of security, you don't wanna do any modification, you're looking for something that's solid and gonna hold up for a long period of time while keeping your valuables safe, this is gonna be a great choice.Now, when it comes to install, I'm gonna give this a pretty easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Now, you will need about an hour's worth of your time to get the job done. However, it's very simple. You need some very basic hand tools to do it. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a trim removal tool, a 3/8-inch drive ratchet, a zip tie, an 18-millimeter and 10-millimeter socket, a T30 Torx socket, and a 4-millimeter Allen socket.So, to start off this install, we do need to prep our lockbox in order to get it inside of our Wrangler. So, in order to do that, we need to install our mounting bracket and we also need to install our handle. So, for this, you'll need a 4-millimeter Allen key or an Allen socket. You're also gonna need a 10-millimeter socket or a 10-millimeter wrench. So, the bottom of our lockbox is going to have three mounting holes here. As you can see, we're going to place our mounting bracket right over. This is gonna follow that curve or that bend in the lockbox. Then we can take our provided Allen bolts, our 4-millimeter Allen key or socket, whatever you're using, then we can spread those in. I recommend that you get all three in before you go ahead and tighten them up. And then once you have all three hand threaded in, we can take a ratchet and tighten those up completely.Now, with the box is flipped over and the drawer open, what we can do is take our handle, we can place that right in the mounting location up at the front next to our lock. And then we can take the provided 10-millimeter nut and thread that into place. Now, once that's hand threaded on, we can take a 10-millimeter socket. At this point, what we can do is head over to the Jeep. Next, we can prep the Jeep in order to mount up our lockbox. And the two bolts up at the front of our C-bracket will need to be removed because we'll be sandwiching the bracket for the lockbox there. So, I'm gonna take an 18-millimeter socket and my pneumatic impact wrench and take those out. Now, these are pretty difficult to take out just because from the factory they do have thread locker on them. So, you will need a breaker bar if you don't have any air impact.Now we need to remove the bracket that's underneath our seat that's gonna be holding up this wiring harness here. Now, this would interfere with our lockbox if we were to try to put it under the seat right now, so we do need to remove it. So, what I'm gonna do first is take off this wiring harness. This is gonna be held in by a clip onto the bracket that you see here. So, I'm gonna take a trim removal tool or a clip removal tool and just remove that from the bracket. Now what we can do is just move this to the side. We will zip tie this up out of the way in a second. So, I'm just gonna move this over. And then we need to remove this bracket here. So, this will be held in by two T30 Torx bolts. So, I'm gonna take a T30 Torx socket and my ratchet and we can go ahead and remove those. Now, there's not a whole lot of room underneath the seat, but you should be able to get this out of there. All right. Once that second bolt is out, we can remove the bracket, and then we can take a zip tie, we can zip tie this up out of the way. There is another wiring harness up at the top here, so you can just zip tie that together.So, at this point, what we can do is take our lockbox and position it into place. Now, I do recommend that you actually lock the box just so the drawer is shut when you are positioning it. Makes it a little bit easier, but we're gonna maneuver this underneath the seat. This should fit pretty much perfectly in between the seat bracket arms here. Now, you are provided with a spacer because there is a little indent in the left side of the C-bracket, so we'll put that right underneath our bracket there on the lockbox. And we can take our factory hardware and we can secure them into place. All right. Now, once those are both threaded in, we can take that 18-millimeter socket that we used to remove them and tighten those back up. After those are tightened up, you're able to use your lockbox.Now, like I said, I did recommend to keep the lockbox locked when you are installing it, but once you're finished, you can go ahead and utilize it. So, this is gonna come with two keys, all you have to do is unlock it. It's gonna be a standard tumbler there, you can grab the handle and you'll have full access to your lockbox. It is pretty smooth. I do like the way that it opens and shuts. And you can go ahead and lock it up when you're finished with it. Now, I also do like the fact that this is not going to hinder any of the seat function, you will be able to move the seat back and forth, and you'll still have full access to the lockbox there.So that is going to wrap it up for my review and install.
