Over the Rear Wheel Well Storage

I have found a couple of options when it comes to storage solutions and using the space over the rear wheel well. I was looking for ya'lls input, experience or suggestions.

There is a thread on here regarding the panels that allow molle accessories to be attached (http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/fan...186396-12.html). However, it doesn't look it allows for much storage other than what you attached in regards to molle bags. Especially since the maker changed his design. Although, one member fabricated his own brackets extension to make it more usable. Neat idea, but I would rather not have to do too much to make something work for what it's intended purpose is.

There is a "saddle bag" available (Dominion OffRoad Jeep JK "Dirt Bagz" Saddle Bags) and from what I've read the maker is know to have quality products. A little pricey though.

Then there is another "saddle bag" option (Poly Performance JEEP/TRUCK & BUGGY*::*Interior Accessories*::*Tool & Accessory Bags*::*Poly Performance Jeep JK Backseat Storage Bag - 4X4 Off-Road Parts) and I haven't read too much on it.

What are ya'lls opinions, experience, suggestions or thoguths on these options? Thanks for the help.

Hmmm....one of those links gave me a great idea.

I have side saddle bags on my bike, but I've been kicking around getting a fork bag for the wife's Rebel.

There is a nice empty space between the brackets for the Tuffy deck. Fork saddle bags could carry a few items and help cover up the exposed bolts.

I have a pair of these I use when topless that attatch to the family style rollbar, holds quite a bit. Not sure of the distance between the JK's bars.

I like Dominion one but the price is crazy. I like that the Poly one bolts into those side holes- great idea for us softies. Really you could turn any bag into Jeep storage by buying a grommet set and two straps....hmmm.....

So I am back. Doing more research and found this:
Clover Patch Trail Tuff Cooler Bag, Black 10-ST-BLCK
Oohh...ahhh.....Seriously whenever I am on a trail I bring loads of water and sodas etc. This is perfect. Leaves more room for my tools in the cargo area- and I don't have to worry if someone takes it. (Versus a bag filled with tools).

Do the lock boxes over the wheel wells allow you to put your soft top down?

Poly is only $5 cheaper. Dominion's price is for a pair, Poly's is for 1 side only.

Did you pick one out yet?
