This is the first of 3 sections of a modular storage system for the Jeep. The skeleton is 1x1 16 gauge square tubing. It will be skinned on the sides with 1/4 inch ply wood with the lids and "tailgate" which need to support a load with 1/2 inch ply wood. One of the lids will be hinged to the front with the other to the rear and it will have a "tailgate" to facilitate loading/unloading when there is a load on-top of the box.

The reason for having the lid hinged is so you can access the box from inside the Jeep when the seats are folded down when using the Jeep as a big tent.

Future additions will include another cargo box for when the rear seat is folded down then the third one will be for when the passenger seat is removed to give me an extended sleeping area.







Future content coming.

Im in. I don't think I will ever put one in my jeep, but I am fascinated by the ones others put in. Maybe its the planning that draws me in.

Mostly done. Waiting in some 1/2 weather stripping and some gas strut dampers to finish it out.
