Re: Rear cargo space bottom

Looks like a 7-year old got a hold of paint, LOL.

I kid Frank

The only two things that would bug me about that is; not being able to fold the seats down and have a flat plane to put cargo on, and (when the seats are upright) still having the holes (or caves) on each side of the false floor.

And I'm not sure you'd even be able to fit 10 woofers in that space (not diameter wise, or airspace wise).

I would build out the floor to cover the entire area... there wouldn't be the holes on either side, and I never carry cargo so big that I need to have the entire rear space. If I did, I would build this thing so that I could remove it if need be.

There is also plenty of room for my two 12's to be built there. The pics, and my awful drawings, make it look like there isn't enough room. I took one out of my current box, and kind of held it in the position it would be for a really simple "mock up", and it'd fit. I'd put one in the back corner, and then another in the front corner. Lemme draw another crappy pic in paint real quick lol.

haha.

But yeah, I see what you're saying. In that case, I think it could be pretty darn cool!

Re: Rear cargo space bottom


DON'T HATE! LOL!!!

Anyway, that is bascially what it'd look like from the top. So all you'd see looking in is the two subs on the left, and then the floor on the right. Might go buy some cheap plywood this weekend and try to mock something up.

What do you mean the first mod?

If I ever had a need for my cargo area, I wouldn't even have my subs back there. The main reason I would do this is so that I can have my spare with me at all times, and keep my subs. By building the floor over the tire, I'll actually have more cargo space (or floor area) to put stuff like suitcases and stuff than my current set up with just the box and 2 12's in it.

Re: Rear cargo space bottom

Thats what I did to my cargo area, except I built a false floor to hide my amps and extra stuff like tools and jumper cables. I just built a frame for the false foor to sit on. I did a thread on here about it.

Think its in the How-To section.

Re: Rear cargo space bottom

Hey Frank, use cardboard instead of wood. Much easier to work with (box cutter vs power saw) and cheaper.

But that's what I used to mock up my enclosure to guesstimate airspace and it was nice being able to make small changes using a hobby knife.

Re: Rear cargo space bottom

I def dont like that idea of having the spare in the cargo area of the WK, that just looks silly with the floor up so high. But if it works for someone else, do it. Just make sure to save the stock cargo floor for when you get rid of the vehicle. lol. I did to put back in mine.
