I like the camp cabinet. that is cool and you have shown it else where on the thread (I believe) but the little organizer is brilliant. I was thinking the other day how I could do this with my RTT and Annex.
Here are a few more details showing how I implemented the closet organizer:I like the camp cabinet. that is cool and you have shown it else where on the thread (I believe) but the little organizer is brilliant. I was thinking the other day how I could do this with my RTT and Annex.
I do my cooking in the back on the Trail Kitchen, so I hang my extinguisher on the tailgate. I sewed a soft holder for the extinguisher in the process; it can hang on a MOLLE panel or it can strap to a roll bar. I'm not too familiar with the early JK door panels, but probably a way to hang this there could be worked out. I did turn the design over to Overland Outfitters but unfortunately so far they haven't done anything with it.I could use a soft-side fire extinguisher holster to replace the repurposed roll bar bracket that I attached to my rear door. I do most of my cooking from the 40% rear seat. When I was looking for a handy location to mount the fire extinguisher to allow quick response to a cooking fire accident, it occurred to me that better than discharging a fire extinguisher in a confined space would be to first exit the vehicle. After I opened the door and stepped out, this location seemed ideal. Have not had an opportunity to try it out yet though.

Something clicked with me as I looked at this photo: if OO made these products with black leather/white stitching option, then I think I’d be more inclined to purchase. As long as it is a nice, supple black leather; not a cheap, stiff “is this even real leather?” leather.About a year and a half ago I designed and sewed a prototype seat back organizer. I tested it in the JK and the LJ for a while and then I put it aside. I reinstalled it today; in these photos one of the new MOLLE pouches I made from the preproduction JK Rear Door Pockets is installed...
I'm driving the JKU to the Quadratec meeting tomorrow and OO asked me to install the organizer to show it to them as a potential new product. I'm not sure this makes sense for them to do; there are a bunch of similar products on the market already and they're mostly fairly inexpensive (albeit with much cheaper materials than OO would use, no leather etc.), but OO thinks their customers, who appreciate quality materials and construction, would be interested in this as a product. That's for OO to decide, I just design this stuff for my own use and amusement and if they think it should be a product that's up to them.
If I learn anything interesting (that I'm allowed to share) at the Quadratec/Overland Outfitters meeting tomrrow I'll share.
Black leather with white stitching... I'll make sure OO sees your comments.Something clicked with me as I looked at this photo: if OO made these products with black leather/white stitching option, then I think I’d be more inclined to purchase.

Don’t get me wrong, the black with brown leather is super classy-looking (if Saddle Brown was that colour leather, I probably would have gone with that instead of black and we wouldn’t be having this conversation) but for me and *my* Jeep, it is too classy. I’d like to see your sample in a Jeep with Saddle interior (I realize you don’t have access to one), as I think it would look awesome. But IMHO, I think all black would be the more popular choice and sell like hotcakes. I’d prefer that to the cheaper products you mentioned, because I’m a little bit classy (my Jeep is more “high-end bourbon-drinking redneck” than “cabernet-sipping redneck” )
I know you aren’t the one making decisions for OO (or even affiliated with them other than making stuff for your own enjoying that they might like to produce for the commercial market), but there’s my unsolicited suggestion. If OO is reading, then they can decide if they want to consider it.
