JT Rubicon Launch Edition & 2017 Raptor (#2)
I just finished (for the most part) the rear storage/fridge mount/aux battery set-up for my 4dr JK. My requirements:
  • Keep the back seats
  • Keep access to cubby storage
  • Keep access to jack storage
  • Include aux battery storage
  • No holes in jeep to mount storage/fridge
  • Build to allow a sleeping platform extension

This is what I ended up with:

Rear of unit behind back seats housing aux battery storage, aux 12 fuse panel, and 800 watt inverter

Aux battery

Other electronics

Really like what you've done.

Some questions:

* Looks like the battery is vented to somewhere. What can you tell us about that?

* Did you seal up the battery box? How?

* Are you charging the battery while you're driving (or do you do that when you get back home)? How is the battery wired (if you're charging it while driving)?

Keep it simple stupid
I built a temporary sleeping platform for an upcoming trip. I pulled the entire backseat, and strapped my fridge down on the driver's side. I built a few brackets and bolted them down with the seat bolts to act as anchor points. It's made to be the height of the fridge, so I can store gear totes underneath, and the fridge lid acts as a portion of the sleeping surface. It's been working quite well so far.
