Small Storage Mods?

Looking for some storage modifications that you guys have come up with. I need to have the back seat in, so building a trunk type thing won't be an option.

I've seen some shelf type things in the back that makes two levels for a little more storage.

Show me your 'Pics'!

Thanks guys (and gals)

I did this on my jeep that was stolen (so if you see it, punch the guy in the face and message me where it is)


It fit all of this (also stolen).






2 gatoraid bottles in it.

Now that's cool! Think it would work in a 98' TJ Sport? Instructions or details on what you did here?

Sucks it got stolen, along with everything hidden in this storage mod. I'll keep my eyes open for the guy.

I have more pictures here.

Just ignore the POS rough country lift install. The only good thing about the RC lift is that the thief gets to get his kidneys knocked around

I like it! What did you use to hold the sheet metal to the tub, is that some sort of caulking???

I really like that, creative and sweet. I might do that on my tub trailer, assuming i ever get the thing together. But once again, very sweet

I can't remember. I'm sure I used some silicone, and I know I used a bunch of expanding foam. I cut the bottom to sit in the lip.


I can't wait to do this on my LJ. There is about 4x the space!

I will definitely be doing the rear fender well storage sometime soon. I have been trying to figure out somewhere to make a storage space without taking room on the inside and this answered all my questions. Can that also be done on the drivers side? I have not had a chance to look.

I'd like to do that too, maybe some picture instructions when you do it?

I'm not sure about doing it on the driver's side, but I would think the gas tank would be in the way. Let me know what you find out!

Yeah, the filler tube is in the way on the other side. On my LJ I had to move the charcoal canister to the other side to make room.

So the right rear fender isn't hollow, you have to move some stuff around?

Good to know, so I assume my '98 should be hollow there. I really, really want to do that.

Toolbox fits on the empty tray under the brake booster.
OK, mine is a RHD but the toolbox is made for the empty tray on LHD TJs.
The tools get hot and it's pricey.

I want to but I haven't had a chance to tear it apart, and I also don't know how to build the little metal piece

Yeah, that's the problem I'm running into also. I think Jgorm needs to do a step by step.

My subwoofer in the center console was blown. I took it out yesterday and realized there is quite a bit of space in there. Since I don't really care for much bass, and think the radio sounds fine without the woofer, this is going to be an easy mod to remove the tiny storage compartment under the locking lid, and make it into a big storage compartment.
