Can you cut the rubber piece you remove to fit in middle space?
That’s an even better idea than what I was thinking. I was just thinking those 2 holes needed a plug of some sort.

Sorry if this is a hijack, but owning a new Jeep has had it's struggles finding aftermarket parts, so I have been on the hunt for items that would do what I need.

For all you DIY guys, I've used items like this for work,...
Slot channel is pretty common, referred to as "T" track.
About $17 for 3 feet of it.

Here's an online catalog from Tslot.com:

Also, Check THIS out.
I am working on designing some track that will go across the 3 bolts that hold the rear hard top on so I can use the T-slot to bolt down and secure items in the back.
Things like my Powertank, gear attachments, etc.
Using some "L" metal to lap over the side to secure things inside the back I think could be done fairly easily.
It makes for easy disassembly as well, when not in use.
It would also spread the attachment out over the fiberglass and I believe would keep a better weather seal as well.

There are just lots of uses for this stuff.
Now tell me some of you won't get some cool ideas,.... just sayin.

And here's 2 versions of the track at 30, 45 and 60 degrees, can you say, "Phone / Ipod mount"? I knew you could

Thanks for the info. I really went with the 67 design because it was a pretty simple design and the rail is a pretty small part, but all of the attachments is what sold me.

Now on the other hand I have already been in the works in creating a 80/20 storage solution for the cargo area of the Jeep. This is to store a fridge Etc.

I plan on using L-channel for tie down points instead of the Trail Rail Management System.

One of the things I am working on is how to make it all easily removable.

I've been working on the same thing for the rear of the Jeep. Here's what I have so far. The base bolts down using the original tie down bolts. It's all easily removable. Fridge box unbolts and the lid is hinged for access to the lower bolts. You can still access the storage cubby when everything is installed.

I work in IT I've thrown away so many Server Sliding Rails its not even funny. I cold have made some bad ass slide out shelves for the JL with them. They are very strong and hold up 60-150lbs.
