WOW! I just received an email from the Chrysler dealer I ordered the cargo loops from. It said my order just shipped! I got my order a week ago. Hmmmm, someone slipped up. If my credit card was charged a second time I will despute the charge.
If the second order still comes in and the dealer wants it back it will cost him $15 for the shipping and handling for me to send it back!
When I got my 2012 JKU I was looking for a floor cargo net to attach to the existing tie downs on the floor of the cargo area. When I started looking, I could not find anything that was the right size. What I ultimately did was, I got the Jeep Compass/Patriot Cargo Net which includes 2 Nets: 1) Envelope Net, provides a pocket to hold cargo, and 2) a separate floor net that attaches to the cargo tie downs. Mopar part number 82210538. The kit runs about 25.00 and I was able to pick up at my local dealer.
The floor net fits great and I use it all the time but I had no use for the envelope or “V” net because there was no place to mount it. Thanks for your post now I can put the envelope net to use.
Thanks to jsb432. I ordered the tie downs from the local Jeep dealer, picked up a couple small carabineers and I am now able to use the envelope net that came from the Jeep Compass/Patriot Cargo Net set.
The Patriot net set looks useful for smaller items, but has anyone found a net that will work across the entire cargo space, from rail to rail (attached to the added on tie-down rings of course)? I want something that will assist in keeping larger stuff back there while on rough terrain.

I just signed up to find out exactly what cargo hammock that is - make, model, where to buy?

For less than $20, you can get a cargo net/hammock with dividers that holds items in the rear cargo area (I had one sitting on a shelf from an SUV I had years ago). I moved 4 of the cargo tie-downs from the floor of the cargo area up to the hardtop bolts, then used carabiners to hook on the cargo hammock.
Plan to get 6 of the cargo tie-town loops from the dealer (around $2-3 each) and replace the ones I moved, plus add 2 to the rear most hardtop bolts, so the hammock can be moved farther to the rear if my wife needs it closer to the swing gate.
Takes about 5 seconds to undo the 4 biners and remove the net and get it out of the way, and the tie-down loops flip up and back, then sit flush on the hardtop. Don't think there could/would be enough pulling stress to cause any problems with the hardtop/bolts, but I'll keep an eye on them.
Thanks to everyone else that has posted so many helpful tips/mods/etc. - I've gotten a lot from this forum. Hope somebody finds this useful.
I have the same ones. They fit great and do the job well! I think they should be on the short list for first mods!
They do work good and I like them because they add a little extra footprint to the area for the top. I also like them because one does not have to buy new bolts. As you said this should be on the short list for first mods!
