I know, you are all hiding.

It's a surprise party.










SURPRISE!

Sure. I have some stuff to do on sunday, not sure of the time though. I will let you know my availability as soon as I can. Let's look it over before getting any parts.

A bunch of us went up Coyote Canyon but it was several weeks ago.

Have fun and report back.

i was wondering if we could fab some kind of storage system/metal box. I was looking at the prices for a box that covers the truck area with the rear seat removed and they are in the $600 range. I need something for back there because my jeep is always open to prying eyes. JW

I have been thinking about that myself. If you want to eliminate the back seat all together then it would be easy to box it in

let's talk options.

I would say remove it all together. My back seat is out 99% of the time anyway. I was thinking of 2 designs. 1 a big metal storage box or 2 more of like a cover that sits flush on the wheel wells and locks via the rear door.

I would think a cover would be alot cheaper by using less metal also if i carried any oversized equipment it can be lifted out easier

Two designes I am thinking of.

1. Cover the top and front and close the back with the tailgate. Optional lid to open from the front to get at it from the seat.

2. full box that would be removeable. Same basic design but would have sides and a bottom.

In either case I would probably use marine plywood and then cover with tin or outdoor carpet. Any metal thick enough to provide security would be expensive; though I have not specifically priced it out.

I like the idea of plywood, should make it lighter and really easy to work with for a prototype. Maybe prime the wood and heculiner it? I would like to attach some kind of hinge to lift it up and hold it open to get things near the back.

My idea for a no back seat box is a channel mounted just below the top edge of the tub, marine plywood slides into the channel (easy to remove if needed) so the top of the wood is level with the edges of the tub (seems like it would work better on a YJ with the flat sides) and cut to fit, cover with indoor/outdoor/hercu, option to add tie down rings, etc; fab a front panel with the top half piano hinged to access from the front to get to tow straps, tools, etc with out having to open the rear door.

For mine, my current plan is to get new front seats and possibly move the front seats to the back or get bucketseats that will fit. Build a box to mount to the floor, hinged on both ends (front/back and lose the "trunk") and mount the seats to/through the box and add new seats, possibly Supra seats, in the front. Cover the box in indoor/outdoor or hercu it.

looking at my jeep today the issues i see are the roll bars will be in the way for a slide in type thing. and where to stop the wood near the front seats sense the floor kind of curves around and you have to adjust for the seats movement.



Really rough but just a start
