Nice work! I guess I have another item to add to my 'to-do' list.

The metal cover looks good but hard to copy the design. Any chance you can put a couple of larger photos on the site?

I completed phase 2 from tailgate to roll cage.
Added stability bars under the cover to reduce flex.


This is awesome. Does it interfere putting down the soft top?

Me?
Which pics do you need?
I did not make a template, just measure twice, cut once.
The curve ended up pretty good for a hand saw!
I can link to the original pics if you want...
10-4.

Not really.
Since my cover is "over" the tub I do lose maybe 1-2" in drop but you do not notice it at all...
Spent all week last week with the soft top down and it was all good.
And having my stuff in a "secure" area while "shopping and stuff" was great.




Compare this to this stock configuration: (no need for bungee for me!)

Sorry for the confusion, no not you. JeepinOH is the guy with the homemade diamond plate cover in his post.

I know this is the JK forum... BUT, I made a storage box for my TJ a while ago and it's been keeping my stuff safe really well through Central and South America.

I'm sure you JK guys could make exactly the same thing...

I started this project this weekend. I like how it's turning out. I'll be padding the top of my trunk lid to use as a sleeping deck when out camping in the Jeep. I'll also build a second deck that will slide in over the back seats when they are folded down. This will complete my sleeping deck and allow a full six feet of deck from the back of the front seats to the tailgate. This should make for a quick get-away. Home from work on a Friday, throw in a sleeping bag, pillow, food, camp box and cook stove and I'm set for the weekend.
