Had this installed today. Was wanting to have a secure storage area since I have the soft top. Seems very solid, no rattles or noise from it, all the parts are metal. On the passenger side there is an opening for access to the outlet and such. The top has tie downs at the four corners, so could load stuff on top of the lid as well. Dealer charged 1/2 hour labor for install. First one they have installed, so they weren't sure what to expect. Ended up taking them close to 2 hours to complete. They did mention that there is a step missing in the directions that came with it. Attaching a couple quick pictures of it.

Looks good!

Quick question... how much hassle do you think it would be to remove the lid and rear panel behind the rear seats leaving as much hardware/mounting brackets in place as is practical? I'm asking because when I go "overlanding" ( another word for car camping:LOL:), I have drifted back to the most minimalistic approach possible and I want to sleep in the back. So for the dozen or so times I will be sleeping in the back I will need to remove the lid and rear partition. The remaining three weeks a month I would like the secure storage area the enclosure provides. Thanks!

Not 100% sure as I had it installed. But looking at it, there appears to be two bolts on each side that hold the metal cover behind the seats. Would think you could unbolt them, but that’s just a guess. Attaching a couple photos that hopefully may help.

I have ordered the one with the lifting lid. I had this on my Wrangler and made it nice to have secure storage when the top it off.

Looks great! Glad to see the speaker area wouldn’t be covered up. This is something I want to do as well. What does it look like under the lid? Is there still access to the power port, hard top connection fluid hose point, etc?
