I made a "trunk storage" cover.

Didn't want to pay several hundred $s on one of these. So I went to Lowes and bought a scrap piece of plexiglass for $5. (A full sheet is around $50)
44"x10" fits perfectly, just cut out a notch for the door latch and sprayed with bed liner spray.

Can't tell by the picture but if you haven't already, bed lining the tub would look really good

I like it. You don't have to worry about water or anything and its much more durable than carpet is

Took it out for my first trail ride. Did the whole thing in pretty heavy rain in 2 wheel drive. Really just wanted to see of I could do it and never needed to engage the 4wd.

Uphill, downhill and across 2 creeks that were running pretty strong. A good day indeed.

Scored new Rubicon Express 4.5 inch springs brand new in plastic for a killer deal and 100 mile round trip. Sprayed her off at a carwash- calling for more snow on Wednesday
