i've been trying to maximize the space inside my 4-door and have been looking for some DIY tricks that might give me some ideas. Does anyone have any space-saving suggestions for common items that people keep in the car?

If you store blankets or extra jackets or umbrellas, you can put them over the soundbar or rear bar. I have lots of stuff up there, just make sure you don't put things that block radio waves over the gps and xm receivers over the centre of the sound bar.

Check the "cheap jeep hacks" post for lot of ideas.

I just installed an ammo can today above the driver rear wheel well in the cargo area for some extra storage. Just used two gun mount magnets and they do a great job and makes some use out of this void space

Thank you, I’m pretty happy with it, wanted to put the magnets behind the carpet lining but they didn’t work too well that way but will likely have the ammo can there almost all the time anyways.

a little plate I made that holds 2 rotopax. It’s tough to see I’m the pick but on top of the rotopax is a cylindrical warn bag. It all attaches to my hi lift; I can access the jack in about 60s by removing the rotopax and the support plate
