New Storage Product

Okay I don't know why no one has offered this and any company is welcome to steal this idea....

A small storage compartment that mounts over the rear wheel well, that can open and close, can be locked, and has a small light inside. We all know the JK doesn't have a lot of places that you can store stuff and not only that but not worry about it being stolen. I personally think this is a great idea and would love to see someone offer this. It would be a great place to store emergency tools or expensive items. I would think someone could produce one of these in aluminum for $150ish.

I actually had a set of panels designed up and was going to have prototypes made last fall. I simply put it on the back burner for now but it was going to run about $400-$450 for steel with finish and another $50 for aluminum. This was for both sides.

I've been working on a design. Don't have pricing yet.

It will have storage, like you mention and an optional locking trunk lid.

In the mean while, I have these LINK TO STORAGE BAGS Not secure, but a KILLER product.

And this: LINK TO STORAGE TUB ENLARGEMENT KIT

Would be cool if it still allowed room for the OEM soft top bows to properly collapse.

That's sort of what i'm talking about... Just not as big. I'm talking about something that just fits over the wheel well. But I like your idea. $450 is pretty steep though.
