I am in need of a safe for my trunk, please don't ask why but it is important. Whatever ask if you want lol. I would like it to be as near to the following dimensions as possible: 30 inches long (side to side), 20 inches wide (front to back), 14 inches deep (top to bottom). Those would be exterior dimensions, not interior. I NEED the top to open like a chest and it HAS to have a key, not a combination, preferably a full size key hole. I want it to be matte black as well. If anyone knows of any good fire resistant safes/chests like this, please let me know as soon as possible.

Well, I've seen other threads here asking about other safes and they got answers. Why shouldn't I? And if you're gonna comment just for the heck of it, don't.

We never comment just for the heck of it; we do it for the nef of it.

Does the safe need to be leak proof?

Fire safe doesn't generally mean fire proof. Any reasonable fire safe will be extremely heavy as they are designed to sweat as the external surface gets hot, maintaining some of the items inside. Putting a fire safe in your trunk, right above a gas tank is pretty much worthless unless you can get the fire put out in 5 minutes or less. In addition, if the fire gets to your trunk (fires generally start in the engine bay I'd assume), you're probably fucked anyways.

~2k cubic inches seems maybe overkill when you can be more space efficient if you cut the bodies up into smaller parts

Are safes rated to withstand gasoline fires? Trunk's right over the gas tank.

They usually do start in the engine compartment, but there's cars out there with a battery mounted aft (regular 12V for gas cars, as well as hybrid) for weight distribution, that I have seen involved in fires. And there's also the fuel tank to the rear, but for the many years, they have been designed to be pretty well protected from rear impact, to the point where it's an issue, there would be a lot of physical damage before the fire, and wrecking any safe light enough to be in a vehicle.

And before anyone else gets ideas, I have dibs on the DHS tip money for this thread....

Sounds like he should get a car with a front trunk or a "frunk" so he can put the trunk safe in the fronk.
Many mid engine, rear engine, or battery powered cars have somewhat usable to useable fronks.
I recommend Porsche 911.

Imagine putting that kind of weight in the front of a mid-rear engine RWD car. lol.
