Jk Outback camping bench

I made a camping bench so I can sleep in my 2 dr JK now.
That's a Rightline gear tent that I'm using.

Nice work! What does the bench attach to when deployed? Can you post a shot of where it hooks (?) into the floor?

The Outback bench sets on top of the bumper, I use two 2" 90 deg brackets that slip behind the bumper that holds it in place when the legs are folded down. The bench top is 3/4" X 24" X 36" plywood , and I use 2" X 4" for the legs and top spacer and two door hinges so they can be folded, and a door latch to lock them when down, I used 1" x 4 " for the two legs braces.

Cool, thanks for the info. Still waiting for our Sahara (2 door) and I want to do something like this for tailgating, etc.
