Default Tuffy VS Bestop Conceal carry drawer pictures

So we got a bestop underseat drawer in stock as well as a Tuffy and wanted to take some side by side pictures and of course give you my opinion.

In my opinion these are the pros and cons of each

Tuffy :

Pros
Larger
Better Key and Lock system
Better Slides
Better Quality
comes with a 3rd bolt.
has the ability to use a cam lock


Cons - More expensive

Bestop :

Pro's
Price

Cons

Really poor quality
Very small
Does not slide out all the way
The key will not come out if it is in the unlock postion
The Lock Cylinder is very poor quality
The bottom of it can be opened with a screw driver

I fit my Garmin GPS (including cord and beanbag base), a small camera, and my Blackberry in my Tuffy drawer on a recent trip with room to spare. The Bestop doesn't look like it would hold more than one pair of underwear.

Do you have any Tuffy's in stock, and what's the best way to order?

Never mind, just ordered online. Thanks for the side by side comparison, with photos. That closed the deal for me. Just canceled backordered Bestop drawer order at Quadratec.
