If you thought Tuffy Security Products would only protect your belongings against theft, guess again!
Dear Tuffy Products:
I would like to congratulate you on your superior products and tell you a story of how they went above and beyond the call of duty.
I purchased my Jeep Rubicon new in 2010 and one of the first things I installed were security products from Tuffy including your Security Deck enclosure, Security Console Insert, Security Glove Box, and your Flip-n-Lock Stereo Cover & Tray. I utilized these 4 products on my Jeep for about a year before they got a test they were never designed to survive…
On May 22nd, 2011 my wife was on duty at St. John’s Regional Hospital in Joplin, Missouri and she had parked our Jeep Rubicon just outside the Emergency Room entrance. At about 5:40 p.m. a F-5 tornado struck the City of Joplin and hit the hospital directly. Our Jeep was picked up and tossed about 100 feet rolling at least once impacting many other surrounding vehicles.
It was 2 days before we were able to get into the area and see the remains of our Jeep, the hard top had been complete ripped away, all the glass had been blown out or completely destroyed, not one interior part was undamaged; the steering wheel was bent, the dash board was riddled with holes, the seats were torn and ripped, everything was destroyed… except all my Tuffy Products!
Not only did the Tuffy Products all survive intact with nothing more than surface scratches but the only items we were able to salvage from our Jeep were items protected by our installed Tuffy Products! All our paperwork and a few items in the Security Glove Box were intact and dry, all the items in our Security Console Insert were there and dry including our digital camera, Oakley’s, CD’s, and our checkbook. The most impressive item was the Security Deck covering the cargo area; not only did it hold together during an F-5 tornado and a complete rollover of our Jeep but it held hundreds of additional potential deadly projectiles and saved hundreds of dollars of tools, winch accessories, binoculars, a 12″ sub-woofer box, and various miscellaneous items. Every item was not only held there but not one item was damaged!
I cannot thank you enough Tuffy for constructing such a quality product. Your products not only saved quite a few items I won’t have to replace but it is quite possible that your products held in items that could have very easily become additional deathly flying debris.
I just wished you made a Tuffy enclosure large enough to park my Jeep in!
