any advice for building cargo rack over rear seat area???

Hey everyone,

I think I'm going to build a rack on the rear passenger area of the Jeep. Mainly for carrying a fridge/camping stuff on short trips. Just curious if anyone had any pictures or info of their install and what they like/don't like. I'm going to make it so I can remove it when it isn't needed. I have some 1x1 1/8" tubing that I plan to use on it.

Uhmmmm.... pointing out that thread (mine, but didn't want draw attention to that) wasn't helpful to you? Sorry, my bad.

I thought you asked about ideas for a cargo rack for the back seat area. I'm really surprised it didn't turn up with a forum title search for "cargo rack", "back seat rack", or "cargo area", since all those words are in the thread title. And this is only offered as an idea for you, to be used, modified, or discarded. Your choice.

It works great. Cheap, clean, simple, and stores away with a minimum of fuss. Could easily be made with your 1x1 square tube. U-bolts through the tube on the side, plywood and cross-tubes bolted through the top/bottom. Got access to a welder? Even simpler, as the tubes could all welded together on 90 angles and provide a flat 360 surface to mount the plywood.

You're welcome.

BTW... no harm meant, that's why I put the smiley at the end of my previous post.

I am selling my rack system if anyone is interested.
