What size are your rims? And are they the black rhino boxer?

Do you like the safe?
Let's hear about the safe, it's the one item I always keep looking at. First is it worth it, does it seem secure enough with just a couple screws in the plastic? Easy to get in and out of say if I was rushing? Is there enough space for glasses case on top with the armrest closed? Any reason you chose dial over the key? Sorry I'm being nosey, it's the first time I've seen it on here besides the backseat version for BL
The BS ConsoleVault is somewhat flimsier than I'd like. It would not take a huge effort to pry off the locking mechanism from the lid - which would be much easier than yanking the whole safe out of the console. It certainly feels safer than relying on a locking plastic glove box. Even a safe that bolts to your seat can be removed with enough time and effort. I went with the 3 number combination for ease of access and no reliance on keys. The wheels are a bit stiff to manipulate; hopefully they will break in. There is a small amount of space on top of the safe with the console lid closed - probably enough for a pair of glasses. Just be aware anything on top will slide all around. I'm not sure it is any more secure than a LifePod 2.0 cabled to my seat, but it does integrate well into the vehicle.

Overall, I like the safe but I wish they had made a channel to allow you to use the USB ports. Even if I had to use a tool to get the cable in, I'd at least like that option. Or even make the ports accessible from INSIDE the safe.

Let's hear about the safe, it's the one .........
This is the same safe you get from Console Vault (The company that I have used for every safe I have in all my vehicles) just branded by Ford (So if you want to ditch the Ford Emblem you could save directly from Console Vault maybe, I did not look.

It opens reverse direction then all my other vaults so that did get some use to but I love the 4 digit combo as it is a bit more secure then 3 and does not require you to use a key. I have a habit to UNLOCK it when I enter the vehicle and LOCK it prior to exiting.. as it secures my vehicle self defense firearm.

ANY vault you have in your vehicle is only a deterrence to a criminal HOWEVER, MOST break-ins are "opportunity" strikes and thus they do not want to sit there and find a way in while the alarm goes off. I never park my vehicle "Alone" it is always in higher traffic areas or my property so someone will hear the alarm. If they were specifically after your vault then it would not matter which one you have.

It uses 4 self tapping screws to secure it into the plastic sides of the center console, this is how all of them have worked from Console Vault and never had issue in over a decade with any of them.

The quality is on par with all other Console Vault brands and other brands I have used, it is a deterrent type of secure storage remember.

I can say I have had a vehicle broke into and have had the contents of the vault still intact after the break-in and the vault was discovered.

Hope this answers your questions!

@RRD & @jazzdab, Thank you both for your honest detailed answers. It seems that the only way it's not safe is if my alarm doesn't go off giving them the time to access it without drawing attention. Definitely sounds like its still worth it if you want to park and not worry.

I bought directly from ConsoleVault and it came branded with the Ford emblem. They’re an official partner now. It is cheaper to order direct - especially if you can find a coupon code.

Added fender flares, mud flaps, and 245/65/R17 Falkens with KMC Alpine wheels I love this car. I'm finding new shit this car does every day.

Tinting rears is on my list to do. I also use Maguiars. Rub in the first coat. After that spray on and wash off.
What do you think of the Maguiars? I heard it was harder rubbing that advertised?

Can you give us an update on how/if the mud flaps* affect your off road capabilities. I am curious if it hinders it drastically for your "normal" or "average" trail driving.

*Edited to make more clear on mud flaps

Yes I was surprised. My micro fiber cloth stuck to it. But I’m thinking it was because the cloth was cheap. I tried a different towel and it was much better. The towel became saturated after a bit, had to wring it out but then used a drier towel after to make sure all the wax was buffed out. Beads up and sheets pretty good. I’ll continue with spray on maguiars during wash and rinse off. Should be easier. I just want some good protection before the snow and salt flies.
