WK2 custom rear storage

Hey,

Just wanted to share the rear storage setup I had made by Chris at Custom Installations. He did an awesome job for me and finished it well ahead of time, my trip up north will be happening sooner than I hoped 😃.
It comprises of two drawers, little one on the left of the spare tyre for straps & shackles etc.. The larger one on the right has a 75ah thumper under it and I'll be putting an inverter in there too, on top is a fridge slide for a 35 litre fridge. The bottom storage can be accessed through the side passenger door after sliding out the drawer and fridge together or by removing the spare tyre. Sorry for the bad pictures, I'll take some more tomorrow after fitting everything (the spare tyre is pulled out in my pics but it sits vertically between the drawers) Chris has some better pictures up on his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/4x4.storage

WK2 custom rear storage

It was a real tight fit with the thumper, had to relocate the 12v outlets to the top. Ended up getting a 600w projecta inverter but no time to fit today with pre-drinks for the rugby, go the Wallabies ATTACH]47718[/ATTACH]ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1413623809.944620.jpg

Re: WK2 custom rear storage

Cool, so you are storing the spare vertical in the back. Nice idea!

Now thats a different idea would not have thought of that but seems to make use of the space.

Re: WK2 custom rear storage

Neat set-up ,basically did the same in my old dual cab, till I blew a tire and had to put up with the smell of burnt rubber and changed a couple of dirty, black mud soaked tires

Re: WK2 custom rear storage

you could go for a "Rip Proof" vinyl Bag to keep it in, zipped round the end?

Re: WK2 custom rear storage

Awesome use of the space Wadeaus!

Spare tire setup reminds me of the old Cherokee spare location. Very well thought out to make use of the most space.

That's actually a pretty good idea but instead of a bag I have an old wheel cover somewhere that should do the job. It'll cover the tread & side walls but still leave an open section for the foam jack holder thingy. Thanks for that.
