My $60 Cargo Area Cover ~ Light Security

One 6'x2'x1" pine shelving
One piece 6'x6' indoor/outdoor carpet
One roll Gorilla carpet tape
One can spray adhesive

Cut the pine board down to 5' 2" (ish) and notch out the two back corners to fit around the seat belt connections on the roll bar.

Cut one side of the pine board at a slight angle to allow it to wedge under the lip of the cargo side wall.

Test fit the pine board and trim as necessary.

Test fit and trim the carpet as needed.

Apply copious amounts of carpet tape to the pine board and press carpet into place.

Use spray adhesive to secure any loose carpet ends.

Place the final product and force (not too much) it into place using the wedge cut end to slide along the cargo lip.

Have a few and feel proud.














It's pretty sturdy ...thinking about adding a Bestop Baja basket to the top. It's not theft proof, but if someone really wants my subs they'll have to do some work to get them. I moved my Safari Straps cargo net to the location shown. Works well.

Thoughts? Ideas for improvement?

How about putting in a hinge so the piece between the roll bar base can fold up and out of the way, Ya know for cases of beer and such.
