If I'm on the beach fishing or in a field or woods taking pictures, I eat lunch sitting in the front seat. Garden 'stuff' get thrown in the back just like (when luck is with us) coolers of dead fish.

The inside of the Jeep isn't any harder to clean than the inside of your house, and I don't even want to know what y'all do inside your homes.

We don't allow eating or drinking in any room except the Kitchen/Dinning room. Most guests look at us like we have two heads when we say that

My car is like a living room. Not a Kitchen. At least for the first few years. I will haul all sorts of crap in the back. That's what the cargo liner is for.

We also don't have wall to wall carpets in our house, because all they do is store dirt.

So the truck is more difficult to keep clean than our house.

One time we ordered a GMC Jimmy from "scratch". It didn't include Carpet. We were so upset at first but in the long run it was great. The whole floor was like plastic vinyl. You could just house it out. Like a WJ.

That's similar to why I would not get perforated seats or cloth seats. It's an accident waiting to happen.

We keep our cars a long time now. 10 years and/or 200K+. If I disposed my car every 3 years I might think differently.

Re: Where Is Your Trashbag?

My trash bag is in the kitchen. No trash goes in my Jeep. Period.

Re: Where Is Your Trashbag?

Slight tangent, but I have a "pro tip" for y'all. Never ever leave a bottle of Odwalla Superfood in your Jeep for any period of time, especially if it's hot out.

A bottle once fell out of the grocery bag into the back seat and I didn't notice. It stayed there for several days in the hot sun. The bottle eventually exploded, spraying green gunk everywhere, and then baked in due to the heat.

When I opened the door, it was the most gawdawful smell. I'd swear I was in that Mythbuster's episode where they had the dead pigs in the car.

I cleaned it repeatedly, every several days, for weeks before the smell and most visible signs were eliminated. I never want to have to do that again!

And to come back closer to topic ... While I'll likely be pretty OCD about keeping it clean in the beginning, I buy SUVs more for the "utility" portion than anything else. Between SCUBA, surfing, skiing, camping, transporting kids, etc. I'm going to give those Husky and Weathertech liners a run for their money!

Oh, and that garbage bag/container posted earlier looked pretty cool - I may have to order one of those.

Thanks, didn't notice the hooks. I hooked my bag on the back passenger side. Works good enough for me.

Re: Where Is Your Trashbag?

Speaking of which.

How does one carry a gallon of milk home?

One of these days, one is gonna explode.

It's usually not in a bag. I hate putting on the seat, because it's wet and might leak. And if I jam on the brakes it's gonna go flying.

If I put it on the floor it rolls around and gets sand on it and which makes it's way to the glass shelves in the fridge.

I never found a good way to get milk home.

The only way I can think of is a Milk Crate with extra empty bottles to fill the space (which IS how I transport a Gas can for the lawn mower). But that is once every 6 weeks or so.

I have a folded cargo net stretched across the back of the cargo area for onesies twosies of groceries and stuff like that... It works great.
Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta get back to the photos of Travis's Bloody Red Rocket. I think I'm in love!

I usually buy 2 gallons at a time and stick them behind the drivers seat,
Since I have the seat way back (long legs) they can't fall foward or backwards and I don't do any high speed cornering so they don't fall sideways. As for the sand... there is none.

And why would you not wipe the sand and moisture off before putting them in the fridge ll

Tell the bagger to put the gallons in a plastic bag. Then use the hooks in the cargo area.
