My DIY Lockable Trunk Cargo Cover
A few people have done them, and I did mine yesterday. Locking cargo cover using the tailgate. I used pine as the material and covered it in "hydro-turf" (use on boats and jetskis) Looks good and functions well. Added some eye hooks for strap points and added a small shelf for my rear windows when there removed to put the top down. That way there always with me and secure! I need to add a backing to it and will probably remove the automatic lock from the tailgate so someone can't just break in and hit the unlock button.
Very well done! I like that a lot. The extra shelf for window storage is a really good idea. I'm going to be building something along those lines for my TJ in the next week or so and I might have to borrow that idea for the window storage.
Trial By Trail
I think you just came up with a ORIGINAL idea! That window storage shelf is great. Way to think out of the box! (Oh, yeah, the hydro-turf looks good too! )
You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

Thanks, but my rig is just a Prince among Kings. You folks gave me the answers to build it!
Couldn't someone break into the cabin and then just fold down the seat? (this is still a great mod, just saying that disabling the auto lock may not get you much if you don't somehow disable the seat folding feature)

hydro turf covering
Hey I am a new jeep owner and I was browsing through looking at the different trunk covers on here getting some ideas. I saw the one with the hydro turf used as the cover material rather then carpet and I liked that idea a lot. I was wondering how much of it you had to use to cover it with. The website sells it in sheets that are 40"x60". Is one sheet enough? Thanks
