Rear interior storage ideas?

Ok......anybody know of any "off the shelf" solution for rear storage. I'm currently using a milk crate to hold my tug-em straps, chains and shackles. In addition, I've got my powertank mounted to the side of the crate. All this is strapped down to the existing tie-downs.

Perhaps a low profile drawer system which still allows throwing groceries and stuff on top.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I tried looking at knaack, weatherguard, etc....

Thankshttp://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/images/smilies/thinkerg.gif

Re: Rear interior storage ideas?

Slee off-road has one that is being used in the Ultimate project but it is spendy. I've thought about checking out the drawer systems from Tuffy Security Products, they are metal and lockable and they have been around for a long time. They are not made just for the FJ but are universal and for Jeeps and might need to be worked with to fit perfectly. Nice product.

Re: Rear interior storage ideas?

Make one, or hire a carpenter like I did.
Mine was for my '91 4Runner, but it found a nice home in the back of the FJ.

The Powertanks bracket is bolted down to the top of it.

I searched SUV drawer organizer on Google and came up with some things that might fit your need.

Re: Rear interior storage ideas?

The US Marshalls had a line on an awesome drawer system that had individual locking drawers in the Expeditions they use that looked something what I linked to below or google Truck Vault. I will keep on looking an let you know what I find. Good luck!!

Nice one Corey, I've got building one on my list of things to do to the FJ also. I would like mine in a modular unit that is made up of sections with drawers that stay with all and more that can be added or removed for the activity at hand. I would also like to make mine with some sort of gun and bow holders for one of my favorite hobbies. My thought is to have a vertical gun/bow rack area that will remove and in it's place a section for another use. Still just in my brain really, I'll have to put some drawings together or better yet get'er'done and post some pics of it.

Re: Rear interior storage ideas?

the vehicles they used on the tv show 24 seemed to have great cargo bins and drawers for all their rad gear.

I made an organizer for my 40 from 2x8s and CDX which has slots to slide in toolboxes with the handles sticking up out and trays for extra battery boxes plus a slot for rolled up maps. In the C currently I just have a bunch of cardboard boxes jammed in there with various categories of stuff, chain, 5 gal water, chocks, jumpers, jackbase, jackstands, hilift jackstrap for wheels (which works for the front bumper btw) tools, emergency lights, blasting caps, Primacord, a case of DuPont Hi-Yield, road rations, a third backup GPS unit, tent, Lords of Acid CDs, etc. Shovel and hilift are tiewrapped to the rear seat supports in the rear seat footwells



it is not a permanent solution but I can find stuff in there. I really like Corey's setup.

Vehice storage's units are less than Truck Vault's version.

Our EMS/FIRE supervisors have the TruckVault units in their SUV's and those things are bombproof. Worth the extra money? Up to you.

Re: Rear interior storage ideas?

Also been thinking of designs for a self-build. I am slobbering over the oak in Corey's ride. Nice work that won't come apart. One advantage of putting together your own is you can customize it to your preferences (sub-woofers, amps, powertanks, tripod bins, whatever you want). Down side is my quality will be mediocre (bad for perfectionists), time to get 'er done, and knowing that as soon as you get to use it you will inevitably find something you wish you had done differently!!
