My (awesome IMHO) LJ cargo storage box

Hello Jeepers,
I got some good advice on making a storage box for my cargo area here. So i wanted to share what i did in case it helps others. 2005 LJ.

Its a plywood box with a hinged top and side latches. When latched, you cannot lift the lid without unlocking the tailgate. I used turnbuckles and eye bolts to attach to the tie-down eyelets. So the whole think is easily removed (to clean the carpets, etc.).

I've since also installed some eyebolts on the top so i can attach a cargo net and hold some more crap on top like beach chairs. Painted everything black and it blends in perfect and works perfectly. Maybe 100-150 in parts and supplies. Very happy! I didnt invent this but modified it from another dude.

Have a nice day!

Looks good. I made something very similar for the back of my LJ when the seats are out, but need to build something for when the seats are still in

Here’s mine for when the seats come out
