    TTT, Updated post #6

    - Fire extinguisher
    - Finally carpeted (the top) and painted (the inside) rear storage solution I created. I think it turned out really well, haven't seen in the daylight yet though.
    - Also started painting the RROR skid system

    Looking really good!

    I'd like to see more of that shelf/storage/sleeping thing you made. I've put in a shelf on the back and it looks pretty good, but it stops at the seat. Didn't occur to me to have it go farther. How'd you do that?

    Mine's a soft top, so i just laid the plywood on top, and used the hardtop holes to secure it. Obviously you did something different.

    The plywood fits inside the edge of the tub, I don't think I have many pictures of it with the whole setup in there but I'll look around.

    Surprisingly I didnt' take many pictures of it. But it wasn't that difficult here's basically how it works.

    I made a hinge, off set from center, of the rear most board. I wanted this whole setup to be easily removable. There's two 4x4's on the front of the rear section for support, right behind the back seat. There's a "T" support that runs down the center of the board, off set from the hinge. And there's footers to set on the plastic of the rear most coners of the board. That's everything I did to make the rear sturdy enough for us to stand/sleep on.



    Then I cut 4 pieces of plywood to run parallel with the jeep towards the front. They follow the curvature of the floor pan and are the only supports we have for the front two pieces of the sleeping platform. I made footers out of extra pieces of plywood and nailed them to the platform boards where they needed to be to fit with the support boards. If you look close you'll see how the center of the front board in this picture has little pieces of wood to align it with the support board.


    On the board furthest to the front I used a hinge and added about 10 - 12" of space that flips forward into place when the front seats are moved and tilted forward. This is what makes the platform long enough to sleep on.



    You can see the flip portion folded back on itself for driving in this picture. You can also sort of see the long support boards in this picture as well. Sorry I don't have better pics. I don't plan on putting it in again in the near future, but I still have all the pieces in the garage. This was mostly designed for our upcoming trip to the Rubicon this summer when we won't have our trailer with us.



    I've made the rear section permanant now. After having it in there for a little while I don't see the need to take it out. I can put so much more shit back there it's incredible! I've nailed all the pieces in place for stability. When I put the rest in for the Rubicon I'll probably nail it all together for the trip, then pull it apart when we get back, still leaving the rear section there. If you have any other questions fire away! I can take better pictures of just the rear section if you'd like.

    That's awesome, great work all around. As for the shelf it's one of the best designs I've seen for versatility with the seats up or down.

    Thanks! I'm gonna keep it updated here. I'll be busy as hell starting tomorrow morning, all the way up until I hook up the trailer and go camping/wheeling again this weekend. Waiting on some parts to arrive, (lots of stuff inbound) and getting shit installed that's currently here. Need to do some suspension adjusting, possibly fender cut too then hopefully wheel this bitch!

    Thanks the plan! I have a small air leak somewhere with the OBA. It's probably going to be tough to track down because it's not big enough to make any noise so I don't know which fitting it is. Time will tell I'm sure, I'll take care of it at a later date.

    The spider webshade is awesome! Keeps the sun off my white ass just enough so I don't burn to a crisp. I found it off a guy on craigslist, he was shipped the wrong one for his TJ. Can't remember what I paid but it was cheap as shit. I'm still not sure if it's actually for a 4 or 2 door but it works well the way I have it wrapped around the front of my roll bar instead of going all the way to the windshield.
