Default Pics or thoughts on a gun rack in the XJ?

I want to put some kind of gun rack in my XJ to hold my AR-15 and maybe one other long gun, have any of you made one or found one to work?

Idea's?

I was thinking something running back to front along the rear windows behind my tint?

I have almost 0 fab skills, that's why Im looking for ideas or in place things already done.

They sell them at sportsmans/cabelas/gandermtn/etc that hook into the window sill area.
Would not keep visible firearms in a vehicle unattended though...

i just keep whatever im carrying in a gun case on the back seat, windows are tinted enough that people cant see in and i never leave it unattended when theres a gun in there anyways. Got to find out what your laws are, in PA the mags and ammo must all be stored seperately from the gun

I usually transport my rifles/pistols in their cases under a blanket on the floor of the cargo area. I generally figure it best if nobody knows about 'em!

I have pondered making a 1/4" plywood container the size of the cargo area, like a raised floor with hinges on the top that would be like a long, flat box. That way I could take it out to make more space, or leave it in for storage. I even considered making it more permanent and making it a drawer with partitions to separate my recovery gear from my shooting iron instead of a hinged-lid box. I've seen others do a raised floor with a drawer underneath, and there are pics on here somewhere if you search around a bit.

I also considered mounting a scabbard of sorts to the inside of the lift-gate panel, maybe even recessing it for additional concealment. There are a lot of bears where I camp and it would be nice to have some 12ga magnum slugs quickly available. I've since decided I need a newer XJ (with actual floor metal instead of just carpet) and am waiting to get that before I make the weapons mounts & storage for the back...

Whatever you do, x2 on know the local regulations! U don't want the law taking your guns!

I have this and it won't fit my rifle or shotgun... but it holds my fishing poles just fine.

Im in Utah and have my CC permit as well, the laws here are very relaxed on guns, especially rifles. I just want to save cargo space when camping, and it would be behind very dark tint anyway....I don't leave my guns in sight or unnattended.
