If you are worried about losing the spare, they make anti-theft bolts you can install (that need some sort of key). As for the rack above the spare, I haven't kept anything up there. My intention was to have a place to carry one night's worth of fire wood...and have a place to set the heater when sleeping in the tent.Really awesome posts. I suppose with a little creativity anything can be possible. Are any of you worried about theft? At least for those of you guys with the rear tire rack mount? Seems like a great place to store things but I'd be scared of getting my things stolen.

That’s a very cool looking set up!If it's just me it's easy, even two would really only mean a double swag. I think no problem without the back seat in. We did 4 weeks in my old XJ with 3 of us just using the area behind the back seat (so nothing on the seats) and a rooftop tent. Roof rack just has spare fuel on it but chucking the swag up there leaves a lot of interior space.

Nice! Are you still able to recline your seat?
Remove the back seat and move the front passenger seat all the way up to the dash and you should be able to.One more question, has anyone tried putting a road bike inside a 2 door? The dealership would allow me to put my road bike inside. I understand Lol, but couldn't hurt to try. I imagine with the front wheel off it might be possible?
