|Islander10||Yea had to make it out the last couple of days, jeep did really good in this mess. Be safe guys.|

flat black (a couple of cans)
bedliner (to waterproof
outdoor carpet glued.
Wanted it to be under the tub edges so as not to interfere with my tonneau cover and I like that way it looks like that!
Cut the plyboard in half fit it to the tub and made whatever cuts were needed, drilled out the center support holes and bolted up both halves using tower leg supports I had laying around (used to build towers) to support the middle but any steel strap / "L" bracket or really even wood will do the trick.
Then I cut the rear piece as a whole cut because the rounded corners allowed me to fit it under the tub. Bolted more steel connecting the d-rings to the steel underneath spanning both pieces.
cut 12Ga super-strut with L brackets bolted it to the seatbelt anchor (yup, took the seatbelts out - you don't have to but its a great anchor point!) and drilled through the tub midway towards front and bolted to the super-strut / L brackets for additional support.
Run a piece of strut across the front (nearest cabin) to dissect the area so even if the seat gets pulled forward you can't get back there - mounted a couple of lockable ammo cans for additional hidden storage.
You can dance on the deck if you wanted to, its very solid.
That's almost a write up!
Here's the pics - let me know if you have questions - I can't believe I didn't do this years ago!

Agreed, that is super slick! I like it!
Speaking of slick, everyone fare ok with this nasty slick weather so far? I ventured out yesterday to get gas, it was pretty nasty. Off to work today, and it wasn't much better...the jeep made it like a trooper though! Everyone be safe.

|surferbear||^^^ Say... that's pretty slick. How'd you do that?|

|eton||So its looking like I may lose my 2 1/2 car garage as a result of moving to Wilmington which I use heavily for working on the jeep! Does anyone know of a place in the Wilmington area that rents work stalls / storage or something like that? I'll probably get a storage unit to get us there but those aren't really setup for vehicle maintenance. Thanks!|
|11-19-2013 06:03 PM|
|eton||Thanks! Looking forward to living there, we visit often and have always enjoyed it there!|

|eton||Hello everyone, my Wife and I are moving to the area in January so I'm glad there's a Wilmington group! We are currently in Raleigh and have a really active group of guys here (Raleigh area wheelers - facebook) so I'm looking forward to getting more beach time in! See you in January!|

Carolina Trail Stalkers, it is time to return the favor to our Wilmington Crew. Our October Meet -n- Greet will be hosted by Eddie Dorsey at Buffalo Wild Wings in Wilmington. The last time we went to Wilmington, they put quite a shindig, and I bet it will be no less than great this time. Looking forward seeing as many of you there. As you know, we will convoy together from Jacksonville to Wilmington.
Copied and Pasted from there Facebook page. It start at 1pm at the BWW off Old Eastwood Road
