ceiling cargo net idea, pics please

i was just working on the jeep getting things in order, battery out and windows down, then DOWNPOUR!

what ever ......

BUT, I just had an idea and wanted similar examples/ pics if anyone has built a cargo net into the inner rear roof to hold things like a Tarp, or wool blanket....

not wanting crazy room, just something that grabs and pulls stuff up.

where would one anchor this? this is a cool new idea i like a lot and would very much like to build into the rear cargo area.

thanks for the help/ideers

The rear upper seatbelt bolts are two good attachment points. I am betting you can find somewhere to attach a hook or something in the back corners behind the trim pieces.

Scan the hardware store and I bet you can make something in an afternoon

I sure wouldn't want an axe or shovel stored at head level anywhere in my truck. One failure and those things break loose into the cabin and me or my kids are in a heep of trouble.


On the models with speaker bars, this would be harder to accomplish anyway, I would guess. Not to mention the impediment in vision out the rear window.


Seems like it's never been done for a reason - but that's just my thoughts.

Pic worked for me. I guess the question is what are you wanting to put up there? Blanket or jacket maybe, much more and you'll be blocking headroom or rearview

Yeah basic small supplies, I don't have passengers really so I'm looking at improving the space for storage and adding some tooling.
