Tuffy vs. Mantec box

Looking to buy a "vault" for my 110. Any opinions on which one is stronger and install ease? It looks like the deadbolt system of the mantec box may be the one, but not sure of the tuffy. Thanks for your help in advance.

I have a Mantec in my 110 and love it. Great design and very solid. Lots of room. You could probably break into it but I think it would take a while and a lot of effort. Cup holder is just box so drinks slide around. You can buy a compartment with two holes but I don't mind the box.

We have them and have installed several. I have one also. It is smaller slightly than the Tuffy boxes but built better.

Special of the Day for you $449.00 for the Mantec one. (we only have one left)

I've used the tuffy in several trucks, jeep, land cruiser and defender.
Love it. the security, the radio slot, even the coffee holders.
Install is pretty straight forward although they have an extra parts kit for the defender.
I recommend it highly.
