I have the people in the back seat carry them on their laps, or I stack it on my sub box in back. I carry everything I need without a problem.

Here's what I did.




Pretty good bass and didn't lose much room. I'm happy with it.

When I get home tonight or tomorrow morning, I will post a picture of what I did about that. I bought this thin boss 600w sub and mounted it on my tailgate. It fits perfectly in the insta-trunk. There's about 3/8" space between top and bottom. And now with the insta-trunk, my sub is locked away when the top comes off.

tobycat1 If you want more room, go for the olympic trunk from Quadratec! That way you can get real 12" subs.

OK, just tryin to save you a few bucks on the trunk, but your right, shipping would probably outweigh that.
03-06-2008 08:54 PM
Jma20a when it gets wormer i plan on building one on my own, i to have a sub and none of the insta-trunks are tall enough. i'm thinking of using some expanded steel with a hinge so that it will open up from the top, and i plan on having a piece behind the tailgate that lifts up.

White93ARB You could put 2 nice 8" subs in there if you had the right box.

03-06-2008 08:47 PM
White93ARB Oh, ok. Well if you find out it'll work I can ship it to you with the rest of the parts.

*The dimensions on the website for that TJ model are the same as the dimensions as mine, I'm pretty sure. At least the height and depth, but I don't know about width. But it seems like if any of them would be different, it would be the depth, with the rear seat location changed.
03-06-2008 08:45 PM
nicolas-eric the TJs rear seat is a bit more to the rear, the trunk is a bit smaller. i donītthink the YJ instatrunk will fit in a TJ.
03-06-2008 08:38 PM
White93ARB It's about 11 inches tall on the inside, and about 10.75 inches deep. Hope this helps.

I can measure the inside height just to the floor, since it's not installed. But it should give you an idea. I'll get back to you about it.
03-06-2008 08:36 PM
White93ARB Damn Nico, I have one that I'm not even using, since I have my spare tire where the back seat should be there isn't room for it. But I don't think one from a YJ will fit a TJ. I woulda given you a deal too. If it will fit let me know, but I'm just going by that link, where it said it was specific to the TJ years.

nicolas-eric that really helps.

do you have some pics of the installed instatrunk?

03-06-2008 06:06 PM
parrot head I have one. They mount with 4 bolts, two on each side. I believe it uses existing holes w/nuts welded to other side (mine came installed in the rig when I bought it). Takes about 2 minutes to remove when you don't need it. Hope this helps.
