Thanks! I'm excited about it!
Powertrip, it's not doable for your TJ with three exceptions. I am 5'7" or so, and I have to sleep on the right side, which is 5.5" longer than the left side. That is for an LJ giving you a max length of maybe 5'10". Subtract 15 inches for the body length of a TJ and there's your problem.
1) root-top tent (RTT)
2) build a transverse-oriented bed platform that slides out to either side through the roll bars, meaning a soft top only
3) or build what I did except center the bed behind the center console and have it fold out beyond the bumper and install adjustable legs under the extension.
