- How to Install Tuffy Security Console Insert on your Jeep Wrangler
Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation
Design. The Tuffy JK Security Console Insert effectively turns your armrest into a safe. This 16-gauge steel insert bolts inside of your console, preventing thieves from just ripping it out. And your valuables are further protected by Tuffy's patented security features.
Storage Benefits. The patented Pry-Guard latch is made from 1/8 inch steel, and the patented Anti-Twist weather-proof 10-tumbler lock resists picking/breakage attempts, but conveniently allows you to open and close it without a key (when it's unlocked). And the welded steel hinge is even concealed with a special Pin-Lock feature to further thwart unwanted entry.
Added Features. As tough as it is, the Tuffy JK Security Console Insert still comes with conveniences like an MP3 player/ pen slot, cable routing notch, and a pair of 12V / USB jack cutouts. The rugged hemmed steel lid fits neatly below the factory armrest, concealing the fact that you have a steel safe inside your console.
Application. This Tuffy Security Console Insert is designed to be used in the 2011-2018 Wrangler JK models.

Nice When Installed, Creative Drilling Required
I purchased this for my 2018 2DR Wrangler JK. Between the customer provided PDF guide (love the screenshots) and the product PDF guide, we were able to install. It required us to heat up a mini screw driver to poke holes through the back of the fixed console for a guide on where to drill the holes for the 2 bolts that secure the tuffy insert to the fixed console (if you don't just want to rely on the 5 star screws and plate). Small hands required. When you secure the bolts, it then requires a little pushing and bending to get the console lid tab (with screw holes) up under the tuffy tab that's secured by the 5 star screws. Drove to work today, didn't hear any rattle from the lid or contents. Overall, a nice way to add extra security to center console.Helpful (0)

Great for the money
Fits perfectly and you forget its there until you need to lock something up. Need a right angle drill to get the bottom bolt in for added security but i just ran it without the bottom bolt. Secure enough from just the top.Helpful (1)

Sturdy and easy
Easy install. Mounted with hinge screws and used a scratch awl to push holes trough plastic to mark points for drilling holes for extra security hardware. If anyone wants to take the time to try and steal this, they can have it.Helpful (4)

Great to secure small items!
Would have given it a 5 Star, but the paint was scraped off one of the hinges; not a big deal, but for the price the quality control should have been better. Function is great and gives a piece of mind for a soft top. Installation was easy, just follow YouTube video. I did go out and buy a right angle drill extension for $17 at Home Depot for the two screws that secure the box in the back. Overall, great product.Helpful (3)

This is perfect for what I was looking for to lock up my gun. Easy install, very strong. I don't see anyone breaking into this without tearing out the entire console.Helpful (3)
Regarding the USB port inside of the console... My 2013 Wrangler has a USB port inside the center console that is connected to the audio system. Does this item allow me to keep using that feature, or will it be blocked?
This console insert allows full access to your factory USB jack.
I saw that the USB port was accessible with this insert - what about the cigarette lighter type power port?
The Tuffy Security Console Insert has cutouts for both the USB port and the 12V round power point.
What is the difference between the 2010 and 2011 consoles that dose not allow for installation of this product in a 2010?
Jeep had a different center console configuration for the 07-10 JKs, making this Tuffy Security Console Insert not compatible with the 2011 and up models.
In there an install video on this product?
Unfortunately we do not currently have an install video for Tuffy Security Console Insert the but the install instructions can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/tuffy-security-console-insert-jk-27601-manu-install.html
What are the dimensions of the inside of the box? What size stuff can I store.
The interior dimensions of the Tuffy Security Console Insert are 5 3/4" L (top), 4 5/8" L (bottom) x 5 7/8" W x 10" H.
In order to get matching keys across all of your Tuffy products, you will most likely need to contact Tuffy directly to order one or more lock sets.
