Keep the thread going. This is awesome. I am scouring Craigslist every day, looking for my XJ! These threads are inspiration.

If you ever want to sell those window vent inserts, I'll buy them!

Also, updates?

I came across this thread couple years back, and I thought I would share my storage box inspired by Uber's.




Couldn't help myself!

I like it man, tell us more about it. What's in the drawers and what is the cubic inches of the sub portion? Great useage of space, btw. Also, what's the purpose of the cutout on that one side?

Thanks, Nothing in the drawers as of yet, but planning on some spare parts. Starter, alternator, etc, etc, tool set, recovery equipment. The 12" Kenwoods are in two separate 1.3 cu. ft. sealed enclosures. The box ended up being very heavy, so I made a bunch of lightening holes.

Excellent work! I like your thinking with the holes.

I liked the layout and really like the behind rear seat ideas. I will be concerned about the excessive use of 3/4 PWD .... how much weight was added to this XJ? A lot could be done to reduce weight and not lose integrity and strength. For example, 1/2 or even 3/8 PWD for verticals would be good. Make the drawers of !/2 pwd with 3/8 bottoms. I did see one mention of cutting holes to reduce weight with the 3/4, but there could be much greater savings with larger cutouts.

The PWD dashboard seems too dangerous for on-road use. The airbags are critical. Explore the use of using plastic materials and acrylics, it's not all that hard to build very cool intruments and clusters without going to 3/4 PWD

next comes some trimming out, then drawers. those are going to be a bit trickier this time around.
I would like to know what was your measurements to your design of your storage box in the back of your Jeep. could you send me the measurements of the box, I would like to do something similar to it but I can't figure out exactly your drawers size by just looking at the picture. if you can send me the size that each drawer is that will help me out.
