replacing third row seats with large trunk storage bin...

Recommended Posts

Hi DJ owners,

I am wondering if it is at all possible to replace the third row seating in my DJ with the large rear floor storage bin and cover? Is this possible? has anyone tried it? I know that a person can unbolt and remove the third row... Any links to the large floor storage bin OEM or mopar? The picture attached shows the 2 parts I am interested in(1) and (2)...

Thank You,

Guy

Here is the mopar link I found but am unsure if it is the right part:

the link is only for the latch. the complete storage is somewhere around 600 bucks. try to find a car wrecker for these. 

this storage will simply replace the third row, just drop it in, so no problem at all.

Worst case if you can't find one for reasonable price build a box and put one in. I had one in mine for a few with a magnetic lock so nobody could just open it if i needed to put something in there.

I installed it in between the sub box and factory storage.

thats actually the better idea, like it. 

i, for now, simply put a wooden floor in it and an aftermarket cargo carpet on top.

but i think i will do the same, now that i've seen it :-D

probably using the space behind the stock storage for a sub and som cargo space.

To cover mine i used black felt i got at walmart. Looks almost the same as the factory black covering.

Hey! Where did you find that storage bin? Or where were you looking for one?

thanks!

Who me? I built mine. The first post that shows was standard on non 3rd row models. Check your local junk yard for earlier year DJs if your looking for 1

Ok weird my reply didn't post again. Third time is the charm

 

Looks great!

Simple and straight to the point. Anyone walking by and looking in will never see it with that rug on. Thumbs up!
