The admin pouch will hold registration, insurance, and a pistol mag.

I have inquired about a commercial account today, and if approved I will provide more details about purchasing panels in the very near future. They will be VERY reasonably priced and made entirely in Oceanside, CA USA.
Oh I'm very pleased with your work and love the fact they will be made in Oceanside. I need to come down one of these days for a vacation

2xs I would totally buy one of these...

Carlsbad0331 Here is the center console panel that I had made for the Tuffy. This will hold a pistol holster, single magazine pouch, knife or and admin pouch.

The door panels are 3 rows of 10 columns and can accommodate multiple ammo pouches, a holster, roll up dump pouch/trash bin, admin pouch, knife, etc.

I opted for grommets to bolt mine on, but we would also make these available with the entire back of the panel being made with hook/loop material so that it could be attached to the doors that way. I have the black screw caps that will go on tomorrow... I ran out of light to put them on.

The rear arm rests will be done Monday and I am having those done with hook and loop with large pull handles (similar to a drag handle), so that they can be pulled off if necessary. I will use one as a medical panel and the other with ammo pouches. So if necessary, you pull them off and go (similar in style to dapper panels in packs).

Let me know what you think, suggestions, comments etc.

ChicoJeepy I can't wait! I'm really excited for this no doubt!

I'm now paying attention cause I've got a need. Have you looked at doing something for the tailgate or sport cage?

greenknight not even much of a tac gear nut but for extra space in the wrangler it some of this stuff would be wicked

indirocz28 I just wanted to say that I have one of your chest rigs, with a camel back attachment, Used it all through Iraq, over 300 missions, and it never developed even a fray in the fabric, the zipper pouches work awesome, and the quality of the construction is probably some of the best of the gear I have seen.

How about some seat covers with tactical MOLLE on the back side and some side or front pouches?

Maybe even those c brackets so the straps don't slide the ones used to keep the doors from swinging too far.
Most of the aftermarket parts that are intended for roll bar use, use Velcro straps. Like grab handles (I want 550 paracord handles soooo bad). So really you have an idea to build upon.

I have a question for those interested in door panels, hatch panels and panels for along the sides of the rear seat (arm rests). How do you want to attach them? I can have grommets spaced along the edges so that you can screw them in to the doors,hatch, arm rests. That is about the only idea that I can come up with for attachment.
The best way for going about attachment is options. Some people want to use screws and others want to use Velcro or other means. I personally don't mind putting a few screws in the Jeep. It's not OEM parts or anything and I'm sure 80% of the Jeep nuts that are on here are your customers. Which I can tell they aren't afraid to put in a few screws for better storage. If Velcro doesn't work for the second option then well..... Back to the drawing board for that.

Dubler What if u don't have a tuffy overhead compartment? It doesn't look very universal.

That and more options for rear roll bars. Maybe something along the lines of each side of the rear seat. Something like MOLLE arm rest(s). Just an idea to throw out there.

Carlsbad0331 I posted these pics in another thread on Friday. The first panel I have done is an accessory panel for the Tuffy overhead compartment. It has 8 rows of PALS with 8 sections in each row. I have a triple 5.56 mag pouch and a Super Admin Pouch attached currently. Plenty of room for a knife and radio still.
Should have the door panels done this week if all goes well...
The name of the company is BDS Tactical Gear...

Riffle mounting would be done via PALLS straps that could be placed where ever necessary to mount any number of different rifles.
I am excited about this. I'm planning on joining the marines when I turn 20 and hopefully will be moving down to Oceanside. I don't want to be rude in asking your company's name. I 100% understand but am exteremely interested in your ideas/items ect.

As to your question before if this idea would catch the interest of people, I think it's safe to say, YES! HELL YES!

Keep up the excellent work.

Waftic Very Interested in all 3 Molle projects. I have 3 friends also very interested in the door skins and a roll bar mounted roof Pals system for hard top owners

Squirrel 442 I'm also interested, being a military guy I have a lot of gear that would interchange. I know my old man would be interested too. He goes out hunting in the High Desert (Ca) a lot. He'd love to be able to secure all his gear. One of his biggest complaints. He works in L.A. area.


If you need someone to test out how they hold up in The dessert environment I am sure he'd volunteer. Having Both his sons on active duty in the military, I am sure he'd get a kick out of it.


Here he is out scouting for future hunting areas on the "back roads."
