The rugged .125” thick, powder coated 100% aluminum tread plate construction connects to the frame of the Jeep creating a lockable, secure, water resistant storage area. The innovative clamp system secures the BackBone to the inside lip of the Jeep frame, creating a clean look with no bolts or visible screws. Unique design with only three pieces that bends down behind seats to totally enclose rear cargo area. Works with OEM and aftermarket soft tops. Easy assembly in about 30 minutes.
Love it. I don't use my back seat so this lets me actually use that room back there to lock stuff up. Install was super easy.
I got this thing a couple weeks ago, and so far I love it! I can finally lock my golf clubs up in my jeep during the summer and not have to worry about them! The first time took about 20 minutes to install, because I had to put all the gaskets on, but you only have to do that once. Once the gaskets are on it will only take about 10 min to remove/install. Only thing is I wished it would work with a hardtop. With a little modification to this thing I'm sure I could get my hard top to sit ontop of it though. Also, once I installed the tool bar gaskets, I wrapped some electrical tape around them to help protect them when installing/removing the trunk. But seriously, this has got to be one of the most useful things I have ever purchased in my life (besides my Jeep of course) and so far I love it!
Installation slightly longer than 30 min. Nice clean fit up and clean lines. Very secure. The rubber gasket with predrilled holes was for an earlier configuration. Connected up with Backbone customer service via their website. They called me back within 20 min on Xmas eve. The gasket was easily modified to line up with the holes. Am anxious to see if still able to fold back soft top all, the way. Will try that when the rain stops.
It took over an hour to install. Instructions and pictures were vague but managed through them. Foam padding could have been installed prior to shipping. Some of the padding had holes that was supposed to line up with bolt holes but obviously was wrong part as holes could not be lined up. Body attachments could be made simpler instead of 1/4" bolts you have to tighten in limited space on certain areas. If they made body attachments simpler to install without a wrench it would make it very fast to install and remove as needed. Description said it worked with all soft tops - WRONG, unless you buy the additional back window bar for an additional $30 plus shipping. The only way I found this out was buy going to manufactures website to see if I was doing something wrong and found I had to buy an additional part to make soft top work. So I've got over $700 into this and not impressed. May go with Mac's Black Box Storage Box for a little more instead.
Can this be used with a Brute Half top?

Hi Sped Man, This Jeep Backbone Security Enclosure manufacturer does not have any info regarding various tops that will work with it, it's a trial & error situation. Thanks for your inquiry.

What kind of top would work best with this item if I want my jeep completely closed?
Asked by Seth from Hendersonville, NC on
Hello Seth, With the Jeep Backbone I would use the Trektop NX. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask, Thank you.

Does this require the tailgate be opened to open the enclosure? How do you access the storage?
Asked by Jeephreakiwon from Las Cruces, NM on
Hi Jeephreakiwon The tailgate is the lockable part that you access using the Security Enclosure. Thanks

Keeping valuables safe in urban and rural settings can be challenging and Jeep Backbone was created when the founders realized their JK with a soft top had no place for safe storage. The JeepBackBone was the product that launched Jeep Back Bone and the innovative accessory for Jeeps secures valuables without having exposed locks, hinges, bolts or fasteners. Their groundbreaking accessories kept coming - including a cargo carrier for additional storage on top, safari seats ideal for tailgating, fishing and hunting and a rear windshield to enhance good weather cruising. Durable, waterproof, corrosion-proof and above all "impermeable" the JeepBackBone redefines safe storage space. Shop Jeep Backbone Now
