Just slept in the back seat of the Jeep again. Apparently two more people joined me in front seats while I was sleeping too haha

It didn't seem that deep...

fold down tailgate

6'3 tall. 0 degree mummy bag, and i'm all set. I put down a couple blankets underneath me and the bag...both for comfort and to keep my bag off of cold steel

I've taken a quick nap to rest my eyes in the front seat before. It wasn't comfortable, nor would I prefer to sleep like that on a trip, but it'll do....

I had this idea, but did it out of a bored impulse, so I didn't account for the back half not clearing the hard top. I will probably need to add an extra hinge. I also tacked in some military "iso mat". I've made it in every weather condition during my time in the Marines with just an iso mat, issued sleeping system and some cold weather gear. But now, I have to fit this 80lbs of dumb into whatever shelter I'm using. I tried stuffing him in my sleeping bag, but that turned out to be unsuccessful and I ended up kicking him out. Then again, we did rock through this a couple Octobers ago on the side of Pikes Peak at 10,500ft. The extra 6-8" of snow fall is definitely what caused his "wtf?" look.

Never slept IN my Jeep, but on several occasions I've crawled under my Jeep with the intention of working on stuff, only to drift off and wake up 3 hours later, much to my surprise, under my Jeep.

Slept in my Jeep plenty of times sober and drunk. Last time was in my TJ at a party. Pushed forward the front passenger seat. Piled clothes and junk in the lower section there to make it level. Pulled the rear seat and stuffed it under my gas tank skid with a small tarp wrapped around it. Piled other junk in the driver's seat and footwell. Laid diagonally across the rear cargo area with my feet toward the front seat, head in the tailgate corner. Mummy bag, pillow, and simple pad on top of my rear carpet chunk and windows cracked open for ventilation. Works great for me at 6'. Add a fold down tailgate and maybe another tarp and you're golden with a good camping pad.

Old YJ was less comfortable using the same method because of the rear seat brackets stuffed up your @$$ but the idea could work if you loose those brackets. I just pack a tent if I'm looking to camp...these solutions are mostly for when you end up trying to sleep relatively unprepared...

Why is everyone sleeping in the back seat. The reclining front seats are plenty comfortable for a nap. Maybe not so over night, but for an hour or two no problem.

Found a nasty blanket and pillow in my YJ that sat on the street last night with just the bikini top...

Guessing "someone" slept in my jeep last night

The gf and I have spent a couple nights this summer in this. Works can store stuff underneath and it folds flat. Doesnt help if you need to seat more than 2.

In my ZJ I found that if I leave the headrests on and fold the seats down it creates a nice 25 odd degree angle backrest, pull up to a nice secluded view with the hatch up and I have had lots of fun sleeping in there... Great for some of the more fun bedtime activities

I've napped in the back of the ZJ before. With the back seats down, nothing in the back, I can stretch out fully if I lay diagonally (I'm 5'9"). Given enough padding, it's pretty comfy. The front seats are pretty comfy too, if reclined a bit. With the back seat bottoms removed to allow the front seats to recline with the rears folded, and no cargo inside, the ZJ could sleep 4 people in a pinch.
