Battery Compartment Safe Mod
 
I have a '12 Overland, with no QL, so there is an empty compartment under the driver's side seat. I have a small locking safe that will fit in there. To secure the safe, I'd need to drill 3 holes (my screws are about an inch long).

Am I going to do any damage to anything under the battery compartment by securing this safe? Anybody know what's under the battery compartment on the driver's side?

My only concern would be if I drilled into the bottom frame/metal causing rust issues down the road.

I'm unsure if there's anything under there, but it's easy enough to look. Use stainless H/W, and coat with silicone.

Use an epoxy, no holes= no rust

Ah. Hadn't considered this. Hopefully I can get some good points of contact to do this. Any experience with a particular epoxy you would recommend?

Thanks!!

Can't think of brand name, but the one use epoxy at Lowes is pretty good. I believe they have different strengths for you to choose from.
