Pretty sure this is in my near future. Will fit behind my rear seat of my 2 door and under my 5 gallon air tank. This will allow me to keep my rear seat and free up the under carriage...

here is the temporary filler location. once i get the fuel cell that will go behind my rear seat. I should be able to keep the rear seat no problem...

I did sell my front/rear bumper also. so will be ordering fuel cell soon. also ordered up the sheet steel to make the corner armor myself...the steel cost. $78 and with nutserts and all should be under $100



Heres a crappy pic without the front bumper. Will also be cutting the frame down this weekend...

i dont think ill have to bend much, and i will be cutting with a jig saw and grinder. making 4 sheets total and welding the rear piece to he side piece where they meet if that makes sense. still have to see how it will line up though.

Hah yeah I dont usually need all my space all the time, but when I do its really nice. Sometimes I carpool with guys at work and they have their tool bags, tools and anything else and that backseat and the cargo area is very handy. Id like a rack someday, it will be interesting to see what you come up with. Id get a rack but the parking garages just take that desire away :/
