HARDWARE PACKAGE


ATTENTION:

THIS ENCLOSURE WAS DESIGNED FOR A STOCK OEM VEHICLE, ANY MODIFICATIONS MADE MAY AFFECT THE FIT INCLUDING: CARPET REMOVAL/CHANGES, SEATS, ETC.

On Jeep Wrangler JK vehicles with Manual Door Locks only, the rear tailgate lock must be locked manually with key in order for Tuffy enclosure security to function. Vehicles with Power Door Locks by default also feature Remote Keyless Entry and the Vehicle Security Alarm. Arming of the Vehicle Security Alarm (by locking the doors with either the key fob or interior power door lock switch) automatically disables the interior power door lock switches and ensures the tailgate and Tuffy enclosure are secure, even on softtop models or with the top removed. There is a 16-second alarm arming period during which the interior power door lock switches remain active.

For safety do not place any items on top of the enclosure that are not adequately secured to the vehicle to prevent movement in the event of an accident or abrupt speed changes.

All models with subwoofer only - If the vehicle is equipped with the original factory subwoofer unfasten the OEM factory front mounting nut attaching it to the floor and also unfasten the top nut attaching it to the base of the roll bar. (#10.2 Figure 5 shows the location when reinstalling this hardware) Save this hardware you will reuse it.

10. 2-door models only - Remove rear seat in 2-door models.

11. 4-door models only - Unfasten the two rear original factory nuts #10.1 on the rear seat mounting brackets. The two front nuts do not need to be removed. Save this hardware you will reuse it. (See Figure 4 & 5 shows the location when reinstalling this hardware)

12. Install the left side panel #9 by pressing the well nut #10.6 into the hex shaped hole that is located under the carpet at the base of the roll bar mount #10.25. The carpet will need to be cut. Then fasten using bolt #10.7 and washer #10.8 through the obround hole in the #5 Bracket. (See Figure 4)

13. Fasten the left side panel #9 to the original door alignment mounting points. The door alignment spacer #10.5 should be first then the left side panel #9 with the door alignment block #10.4 next and fasten all with the original mounting hardware #10.3. Align the bracket by not fully tightening the screws then shutting the rear door to align the bracket then fully tighten and check the door operation. (See Figure 4)

14. 4-door models only - Fasten the front of the left side panel #9 to the studs on top of the original seat mounting bracket using the original nuts #10.1. (See Figure 4)


15. All models without subwoofer - Install the right side panel #8 by pressing a well nut #10.6 into the hex shaped hole that is located under the carpet at the base of the roll bar mount #10.25. Also, remove the rubber plug and press a well nut #10.6 into the hex shaped hole that is located under the carpet on the floor. The carpet will need to be cut.
Then fasten the right side panel #8 and #5 Bracket to both of these well nuts using bolts #10.7 and washers #10.8. (See Figure 5)

16. All models with subwoofer – Position the original subwoofer #10.23 so the bottom front mounting flange is under the bottom flange on the right side panel #8. Position the top mounting flange on the subwoofer #10.23 on top of the right side panel #5 Bracket. Then fasten using the original nuts #10.2. (See Figure 5)

17. 4-door models only - Fasten the front of the right side panel #9 to the studs on top of the original seat mounting bracket using the original nuts #10.1. (See Figure 5)


For 2 door mounting applications do these steps. (4 door mounting applications skip past this section)

18. Slide each of the (2) Clamp brackets #11 under the (2) rear seat catch brackets inset into the floor. (See Figure 6)

19. Fasten both the Left #9 and Right #8 Side Panels to the (2) Clamp brackets #11 using #10.16 Bolts and #10.17 Washers. Be sure to tighten each bolt a little at a time to keep the pressure on the bracket even. Be careful not to over tighten. (See Figure 6)


20. Fasten the #4 Rear Panel to the front of #9 left and #8 right side panels using the #10.11 knob screws. (#10.14 edge seal on the top flange of Rear Panel #4 is installed at the factory). (See Figure 7)


21. Install the lid #3 by placing it on the enclosure assembly so the welded studs with bolts #10.12 are overlapping the enclosure toward the front of the vehicle. The end of the lid #3 with the Tuffy logo should face the rear of the vehicle. Then pull the lid assembly toward the rear of the vehicle till it stops while guiding the welded studs into the slots on the side panels #8 and #9. (See Figure 8)


22. Close the lid #3. The welded studs on the lid #3 with bolts #10.12 located toward the rear of the vehicle should now overlap the end of the side panels. Push the lid toward the front of the vehicle till it stops while guiding the welded studs into the slots on the side panels #8 and #9. When the rear vehicle door is shut it prevents the lid from being pulled toward the rear releasing it from the slots. When the rear vehicle door is locked so is the Tuffy enclosure. (See Figure 9)


23. Check the seal between the vehicle rear door and the lid. Close the top rear window and check the clearance with the lid. Loosen the mounting hardware and maneuver the enclosure so there is a good seal and clearance between the top rear window if necessary.
