Question for Commander owners

Quick question for you Commander owners -

Will a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood fit in the back with the seats down?

I'm talking width, I don't care if I can't get the back door all the way closed, I just don't want to have to rent a truck & I won't try to rig a sheet to a roof rack!

Wife was perfectly happy with the Astro van until she drove my Rubicon in the snow!

Now SHE wants as 4WD for winter (and to be a bit cooler, I think); but I'm remodeling our house and need the function of being able to just load up 4X8 sheets of plywood & drywall whenever I want - the Astro van is great for that(but not so good on the wintry hills of Pittsburgh).

Any help - thanks!

I've never done it, but I'd think it would fit at an angle.

Ever thought about picking up a small utility trailer - every homeowner needs one of those, espicially the do-it-yourselfers.

Going to McDonald's for a salad is like going to a prostitute for a hug.

Definitely could use a small trailer, but I've got very limited space. I live in a big house in an old neighborhood; houses built before people had cars. No garage, no driveway; just on-street parking and houses close together. My backyard is taken up by patio/deck & veg. garden, plus it's completely fenced in for the dog. No real room for a trailer storage. Good idea though - I could borrow a buddy's trailer for those times... thx

I typically just rent a small trailer from Uhaul. You can rent a pretty good size trailer for like $30 for the day and no storage, no plates, insurance or storage afterwards!
