Pelican Cases in Rear

Hey guys,

I got me a 1988 model and I've been wanting to bolt down some pelican cases in the back. I want to take the back seat out and use the bolts that bolt the seat down, to bolt down a pair of pelican cases.

Has anyone else done this?

Also, what are the specs of the back area without the seat?

I'm on a business trip and I'm spending my down time trying to figure out things I can/want to do with The Jeep while I'm away from it.

Thanks!

I had a CJ that I left the back seat in and bolted a metal tool box behind the seat.

Northern Tool has a variety of the type I used. #41924-2656 ($200.00).

You could probably make a big locking box for a lot less than what a couple Pelican cases cost.

The seat attaches to a couple brackets that bolt to the floor neat the front of the floor lip. You will want to remove those brackets to access the blind nuts in the floor. The seat belt bolts are in the mid rear floor. You will probably want to utilize them also.

If you plan to store a long gun in the pelican case, you may want to bolt it to the top of the wheelhouses due to the length. I just lay my shotgun or AR between the console and passenger seat. I never leave a firearm in any of my vehicles if I can help it.
Sometimes you can't carry a firearm into a particular building (post office, school or courthouse) so I lock my pistol in my Smittybilt console if I have to go into any of those places.

Sportsmans Guide sometimes has a selection of military surplus cases that might adapt to your purpose.

Good Luck, L.M.

Agreed. Imagine greater than what you see in a catalog, then make it so. Think of the tools to buy to do that, not the cases. [EG: Don't think which bumper to buy, think which welder.]

What a great statement. We can all learn from it.

Good Luck, L.M.
