I did something similar to my YJ. I used 3/4" plywood and made a deck that completely covers the rear and sits on the wheelwell humps. I have enough height underneath to stash four milk crates full of supplies and I installed six screweyes on the top side so I can use ratchet straps to hold down anything else. It works great, it's removable and it was cheap.


You may not like guns, and choose not to own one. That is your right. You may not believe in God. That is your choice. However, if someone breaks into your home the first two things you are going to do are: 1) Call someone with a gun. 2) Pray to God they get there in time.

After an eventful weekend in the woods i began my search for a appropriate first aid kit for my jeep. and where i could store this piece of kit, still allowing it to still be easily accessible. i found that the molle rip away first aid pouches to fit my needs, big enough to carry everything thats needed and can be mounted anywhere on the rollbar out of the way of everyday life, but can be grabbed moved to where the incident is. trying fill it with the most useful equipment is the hard part, is it better to pack for injures you normal suffer such as rolled ankles and stings? making a more personalized kit or a normal general kit with a little of everything? if only stimpaks were real i would just carry a couple of those and call it a day.

Today's Jeeping: Well, the aluminum got here and this afternoon I spent about a half-hour down at the welding shop formulating a solid plan of action for how to get this thing cut and assembled. I'll need to make some front and rear patterns from hardboard - thus far, I've done my rough sizing with cardboard templates and paper - and make sure that the perimeter is as I want it; this will give me a final overall size. The sheet will then be sheared to that established size and I'll take it in hand for some jigsaw and sanding work; the rear radiused corners and front seat clearance will be cut and all of the edges will be cleaned up. I can then slice the roll bar pillars in half with a cut-off wheel - no italics were needed, there, but that portion of the work is going to be seriously nerve-wracking - and test-fit the deck plate...and hopefully, it will fit. Pending that it does so with minimal fuss, I'll then take it back to the welding shop and have the front lip formed and welded up...and then it's just a matter of cutting and fitting the substructure and logistic track, welding the roll bar flanges in place, and doing a lot of drilling and countersinking.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Any plans on running a stronger cage in the future? A bolt in sport style cage should still work with the new styled top your going to make if I'm understanding the plan correctly. No one ever plans for a flop, but as you've said before, safety is always a number one concern.

That's the idea! I don't want to scrap a sheet of aluminum because I got impatient.

Yep, that's exactly what I want to go with. After talking with a few people that know a LOT about cages I've decided to keep as much of the stock cage as possible and bolster it with a few bolt-in pieces. You can't put a real roll cage in a TJ and keep it street-legal, but there are a few improvements that can easily be made.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.
