Need help with storage cart ASAP

So I bought this storage cart from Quadratec, Quadratec Exclusive JW-HTC - Deluxe Heavy Duty Hardtop Storage Cart for 76-06 Jeep® CJ-7, Wrangler YJ & TJ - Quadratec

And need helping the stupid instructions on how to put it together. Yes it says it's very simple, but crap, I don't know what goes where or how. Here is a picture of the components:

Couldn't get your pictures to expand so it's hard to see what all you got.

OK, looking at the distructions on QT's site. You should have 4 casters, 2 matching "boards", 2 boards (much thicker then the rest), 1 shorter board, 1 really short board, 1 bracket, whole bunch of bolts/nuts/washers/etc.


Take the thick boards and lay them at your feet. Now grab the 2 matching boards and a pair of casters. Also grab 8 bolts/nuts/washers/lock washers if included.

Shove 4 long bolts through the thick board holes. Take them and install it over the 2 matching boards, most likely they will only match up to the bolts on the long thick board one way. The thick boards parallel to each other the matching boards angled in.

Now install a caster under each matching board, and onto the bolts. Install nuts/washers/lock washers.

Grab the short board, not the really short one. Go to the other end of the matching boards. Shove 8 bolts through the short board into the holes in the matching boards.
Now take the other 2 casters and again, slip em under the matching boards and onto the bolts. Install nuts/washers/lock washers.

NOW TIGHTEN ALL YOUR BOLTS/ NUTS.

Now grab the really short board, the metal bracket and your remaining fasteners.

Appears from the photos, 4 bolts go through the metal bracket and into the short board (not the really short one) , where they exit the short board install your nuts/washers/lock washers.

Now you can grab the really short board. From the photos it appears it is attached to the metal bracket with screws. You should be out of parts and fasteners now.


From what I can make out in your photo, it looks like they have replaced the 2 thick boards with a single one. Figures. they change the design and not the instructions.

Single or 2 boards, assembly should be the same.

Thank you sooo much. I really appreciate it. When I looked at the quadratec website for the instructions it was only for the retainer bar. Would you have a link by chance?

Use your link, look below the picture of the top, where it says "Fitment and Product Details". Center of that is a bunch of wrenches and right below is an Adobe link to Installation Instructions.

Mostly worthless photos and info as you stated on the lock bar , but I was able to see enough to figure out the build of the rack.

Honestly other then the metal bracket, the rest of the rack could easily be built out of some 2x4's, couple of pieces of scrap carpeting. Hardware and casters from Lowes/Homedepot.

Hmm, would be easy enough to fab up some stacked 2x4 sections to take place of the metal bracket. Heck use the kit to get measurements, build your own, and send back the kit.
