Storage ideas for TJ

I'm wondering what everyone here has done with the rear of their TJ as far as storage ideas. I've been toying with building a box of sorts that would fit in between the wheel wells. I have a 10" sub in the rear so I would have to get a bit creative but post up what you've got! my goal is to box out the rear and run a rack above it and strap my spare on that rack so I can remove the rear tire carrier and save departure angle.

Thanks

I pulled my rear seat a long long time ago. I installed the bestop storage trunk with slidable lid for security. Later I added a Bestop storage rack above it which mounts to the row bar. I first tried it mounted to my rear door and over my spare but I couldn't raise or lower my top.

I would love to see pics of your setup, I am contemplating doing the same thing.

I also removed my rear seat last summer and installed the Bestop rack in back. When my hardtop is on my dachshunds ride on it.



My review of the rack:

Where did u get that set up? It looks great! So the soft top goes up and down with the way you have it now?

^quadratec.com sells the rack. I don't have a soft top, however the rack doesn't go all the way to the back so there is plenty of room for a soft top to go up and down behind it.

i built this for my TJ







here was the build of it, i had orginally thought of building a sub into it, but 86'd that idea once i realized how much space i'd lose for the drawers.
















Then i raptor lined it and bolted her down.

Sorry for the late response, but do you have the dimensions for your cargo drawer? That looks really clean... Thanks!
