I guess you're speaking of the transversal bar for the soft top.
The rear window slides in this bar and that's what the tailgate closes tight on...

I was gonna ask the same question!! I've got a hard top 2011 and was slightly confused.

Has anyone thought of a way to do this that would work with the hard top on OR off? I like the idea of having and extra shelf even with the top on. I guess when I that the top off I could just throw this on.

Someone mentioned the tuffy security deck as a good solution for something like I want. Does anyone have any comments on it? Any real life pictures? Anyone try to do a DIY of this. Would be a fun project.

You could do like me but make it so that it goes under the body lip in the back, not over...
It would work with the hard top and soft top...
Some people did this already...

Here's a PM I sent to some guys...
///

It's 2 parts, rear of seat to roll cage and roll cage to tailgate.
(In fact I just realised I made the big part go from seat to rear of seatbelt cover (grey), and from tailgate to rear of roll cage pipes - so both parts have a cutout for these items as you can see on the pics...)

Mainly used:
-4x8 plywood 5/8
-Exterior carpet (the underside is like rubber)
-Contact glue
-Wood stapler/staples

I draw a line in the middle of the wood board (red line on picture).
Then measure from side to side of the Jeep's body, divide this in 2 and draw on wood board from center...
(the measurements on my picture are total guess; for demonstration only!...)

You could probably fit the cover under the body lip and leave it there with the hard top...
I choose to put it on top of the lip and secure the cover with the OEM nut inserts that are used for the hard top...

You can see here the eye hooks I put to secure storage, and just beside it the bolts that go in the OEM nut inserts...



On the big part you must cut around the rear seat, and around the seatbelt...
On the small part you need to cut around the roll cage pipe and make a nice curve to follow the tailgate bar...

How to center it... Again, the measurements are for demonstration purposes only...

this is awesome. i had a bestop safety box in my TJ and that thing offered no room to put anything back there. this looks like it has plenty of storage space. does the carpet hold well against the elements such as rain? im trying to think of something that can keep the cargo area dry like a duster but offer the security of what you built. fiberglass perhaps?

Subscribed. I am planning a 14 gauge trunk. I have one major detail to work out still. I am not going above the deck of the hard top I am (hoping) to go below. That way I can keep the trunk installed and remove and replace the hard top, keeping my precious cargo save regardless. I plan to continue to use the same holes in the deck to screw the trunk down (or up in this case). What do you think, too ambitious?

please buy this NEW IN BOX:JK Rugged Ridge Light Bar

Quick question for the group. If this has been addressed earlier, I apologize in advance.

If the top is down, how do you keep the rear seats from folding? I so want to make one of these for my 09 JKU, but do not want to think I have secure storage when someone could just fold down the seat.

Thanks for the help and all of the great jeep discussions!!
