I asked them and he wrote back:

The basket will fit, however if you have a soft top it may not retract all of the way. We haven't tested that yet on a 2-Door, but it does interfere a bit on the 4-door soft top. If you do order, just put in the comments at checkout that it is for a 2-door JL and we will make sure we provide the correct crossbars.

Mines a hardtop, thinking I may give this a shot.
But it will only work without the rear seat. And will it fit on the front two sets of bolts, behind the front seats? Or just on the rear two sets of bolts, by the trunk?

That's good information... If this does fit the 2-door, I'd certainly consider it. I like that it leaves room on the floor.
I'm also hard-top, but I'm just too sheepish to be the guinea pig.
Thank you...

$82.77 to ship. At least I got a 10% coupon for today only.

But yeah I measured my two long storage boxes and they will fit under this basket, so it could be like a halfassed drawer system. Coleman cooler is a little too tall though. But I hate that thing anyway.

Srs, I wonder how heavy it’s going to be. He did say you could use your own acct # to pick it up, but is what FedEx charges him for 2 large boxes from Detroit so doubts it’d be cheaper. Whatever, can’t turn back now :piggybank:

This cost about $20. It will come in and out in about 3 min. It can be used with or without the back seat in place. I ran it in my JK with the seat out and thought I'd try it with the seat in for a while. The photos don't show, but you can still put two bigger than carry-on suitcases side by side upright behind the shelf and close the back door with no problem. The shelf has two TARGET baskets with room for an ammo box for tools and a 20 qt. cooler between the baskets and then additional room on the other side of the Driver Side basket for other stuff. The shelf is secured with zip ties and pulls against the roll bar on either side on the back. On the seat is more storage for camera and whatever on either side. Under the seat is more storage in 3 "makeup" cases that cost about $12 each. In front of the "makeup cases" there's additional storage. (not shown are two angle brackets that I got in the gutter section at lowes that are attached via zip ties to the bottom of the shelf to prevent sagging when weight is added)

For the a$$hole who will ask-no I don't carry makeup in these.

These may not look great.....but they are GREAT for keeping your groceries and other things you place in the back from sliding around . Plus they are only about 8 to 10 dollars a piece at Walmart. They are heavy duty and stay upright even when full of groceries...yet they are flexable enough to conform to what ever you throw

in them. If I had more time, I would have purchased some to match the color of my jeep.

Thank you for the suggestion... would this fit under the back of a front seat? I see the inside dimensions are rougly 16 x 11 x 4, but I won't be home for a while today.

@GRAK did you get the Ace storage shelf? How did it work out?

I did... looked at it but have not put it in yet, decided to wait for the next "trip". Weather is so nice here I may take the top off in meantime, and that shelf has to come out before you can get the top off. I will say it is not light in weight. Also you'd think there'd be a slip of paper included with a few sentences for instructions.. nope. Didn't care for that.. but it's not ugly, I think it will do its job well.
