How to tie down a Christmas tree?
 
So I'm picking up a Christmas tree tomorrow. My old WK had stock crossbars and some tie-downs for the rope. I'm not spending the $$ to get aftermarket bars on the WK2 because I carry something on the roof exactly once a year. What do people do? Run rope through the rear windows and across the headliner?

Id do that or open the rear doors tie it down, and close doors.....

There aren't any openings in the side rails even though you don't have the cross bars? On my 04 WJ there were, and honestly, I never looked on my WK or my XK. I only knew about the WJ b/c I didn't have the cross bars, and I had to tie some crap down and was able to do it that way. My WK and XK both have cross bars, so I never bothered to pay attention to any openings in the rails themselves.

Nope. Smooth plastic and a metal channel.

I'm the world's most perfect Douglas Fir.

Perfect shape. Perfect size.

My scent is like making love to a lumberjack.

We have the same problem, getting our tree on Sunday.

I think its completely ridiculous to have a utility vehicle, and have to strap rope through the interior of the vehicle to tie down a simple christmas tree.
