Im from delaware so this only goes out to anyone near the Tristate area but i am looking for a fishing rod and/or cooler holder for the jeep. The prices they have online for new ones are ridiculously overpriced ($200+ for a piece of metal tubing). Anyone selling something like this at a reasonable price or know of anyone? thanks for the help

Using a tire mounted bike rack, which we converted into an alternate storage system. Nothing more then a few simple brackets.. Large plastic storage tray which we bought from walmart.. Then a few "U" bolts, drilled holes in the storage tray. We then mounted the tray onto the bike rack.. Bam instant cooler holder (using budgies or adjustable tie downs to hold the cooler in place)
Next we got some PVC pipes which fit the fishing rod handle.. Again using the "U" bolts.. We attached the PVC pipes to the storage tray or the bike rack itself.

LOL.. sorry lost the pics years ago.. but I'll see if I can locate (search online) all the components we used. btw, we did this on the ole 99 not the new 08.. all that was included when we sold the 99. But I see what I can dig up..
Hey?.. you live in Tow, MD I could walk you through it when your ready.. give me a few and I'll make a list.
