Tuffy sells this one. It fits nice. IIRC it uses the same mounting bolts as the rear seat.




Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

Scott, at the rate I'm going, I hope we all live long enough....

Actually, I've been working on my jeep, but progressing at a snail's pace. My fiberglass tub needed almost as much work as yours! And I'm still at it...

When I had my first CJ5 Jeep years ago (no tailgate) the rear tire mount was cracking the sheet metal at the welds of the back panel. So I drew up some plans and a local HVAC company welded me up a tool box that I drilled and bolted in place of the rear seat. Then I bolted the spare tire mount through the sheet metal to the back of that locker box eliminating the stress and it made for one heckofa bass box for my stereo. This was one of the first things I did when I picked up 'Black Betty' in more recent years and it only cost me only $50 clams






The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area

After looking, reading, thinking of building a bix, at a local feed store I found a lockable BetterBilt tool box 32"x12"x12". It's just a little small lengthwise to hit the outside seat bolt holes but I decided to mount it on 3 pieces of 1/4x2 extended out to capture the bolts. Set up so I can turn it around if wanted. Secure, lockable, waterproof, thick gauge and only $110 for everything.

Got mine from a place called agrisupply.com. Not Jeep specific but the prices are right.

I have had one of the big Tuffy boxes in my TJ since '99 and love it, but no back seat of course. It will be moved to the CJ shortly.

This is not a restoration! My goal is stop the rust, mechanically sound and easy on the pocketbook.

Sorry to hear about the extensive glass work. That's no fun. However, if you DO decide to build a box and make a thread, I promise I will be watching.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
