I put some latches on. I don't need a lock because the tailgate hides the latches. I had to fabricate the top clip because I couldn't find any that had a 90 degree bend. I like that the latches match the rubicon red :)

Looks good. Thanks for sharing. I've been thinking of how to build a platform after I yank the back seats.

Looks awesome. Has anyone discussed the idea of putting a bike cable across the rear cargo door with two pad locks on the D-rings for storing valuables? It is exactly 32.5 inches between the center of the D-rings. Or any other ideas to mount a flush-mount key lock into the rear cargo door some how? I know the back tailgate covers and prevents someone from opening it, but I'm not sure if someone can break in and open the tailgate, then having access. They do make a lock system for the JK rear cargo cover (on Quadratech). I recently accidentally discovered there is a lock in the center console, just like the lock for the glove compartment.

Awesome, great work - and it uses factory bolts. Mine is just a platform to raise the floor and fit my house battery. I like the larger storage area and dig your top template!

@tmakaro - are those 15-inch lifts? what length and weight rating did you use? Was going to order 15 inch / 56lb ones, but think 56lbs might be overkill. only $10 so no biggie
