Show me your cargo camp setup

I am needing to keep up with my brother and his yota build. He has a pretty good overland set up going on and I need some ideas. I am hoping to get ideas on making a sleeping platform in the back of the WJ with some under storage drawers. I will most likely ditch one or both of the fold down rear seats as we do not use them for passengers.
I would like to get some ideas of what you may have as a set up, so show me your pics of your build.




Only one kid in history had ever attempted what Benny was about to, and he got eaten.

Can’t wait to see how folks setup their WJs. Not much of this on Zoo-tube.

The only thing Jeep related I added was a big roof top cargo basket. I don't use it much in the winter, in fact I took it off already for this coming winter as it costs 1mpg and I don't want it to rust. But I do use it in the summer, as I drag a lot more gear to the north woods. I camp a lot - while I do own a camper, I mostly camp out of the Jeep. I keep a summer and a winter kit ready to go in some Plano totes. In the winter I just sleep in the Jeep, so the kit is minimal. Pack a bag, grab a single tote, and stop for food/booze on the way to camp. Since I take more gear in the summer (grill, tent, EZ-up, camp kitchen, camp shower, extra water, etc.). Summer camp takes a little more time, but I am still gone within an hour.

I'd love to take on one of the cargo conversions one day in this, or another (likely) WJ. I've eyeballed the giant full depth drawers for some time. I'd like to lose the back seats and build two drawers with a sleep platform over the drawers. One for parts/tools, the other for my most common camp/survival gear. Not yet sure how I would utilize the space left behind without rear seat cushions, or the rear passenger foot wells. I would prefer to buy just the drawer slides and build a custom kit so I could take advantage of every square inch. However, there are some ready built options.
These guys make one for the WJ:

These guys have kits that could probably be made to work:
https://arbusa.com/
https://decked.com/

I am anxious to see if others have done it, or any other camp/overlanding kit-out folks have built into the Jeep, custom or otherwise. I could so nerd out on this thread - anxiously awaiting....

Thank you, this is what I was looking for. Not to figure out some framework.
