Anyone looking for more storage?

We have started making MOLLE mount products and trying to see if anything like these type items would be of use on you guys rigs? (not the bags, the mounts for them)
I've already worked up a side window area version, but concerned with visibility issues

I could use a MOLLE mount for the rear door panel on my SW, but how would you keep it from sagging?

As shown, that one can carry lighter bags well with grommets and SS screws. It would also be workable to make a steel horizontal insert. What do you guys want to carry if we did that style?

EDIT: And thanks for the props on the nets, glad the pups dig 'em!

You know... stuff for work:

Machete
Water Bottle
Marbles
Latex Gloves
Electrical Tape
Tube Socks
Etc.



I like the idea of a steel insert... the rear door panel on the SW is almost 2x the size of a wrangler so might be tricky to have a larger mount w/o any support in the middle. Also, depending on the body style there might have to be some funky cutouts for wiper motors, hinges, latches, etc. Alternatively, how about a more "universal" mount that just goes across the lower part as shown in the photo below? Looks similar to what you already have for the jeeps.

I'd love a net that would fit behind the rear seats of a ROW 110 (so no roll bar for it to attach to) with MOLLE for the bottom third. Essentially a net dog guard with MOLLE at the bottom so that visibility is retained.

Can you make a hammock so I can sleep on top of my roll cage?

I don't think you could fit much of anything on the side doors but being able to hook a bunch of crap to my rear door?... yea, I'd be all over that.

Smile Nice stuff

We had a cutomer with a new fj cruiser come by our shop the other day and he had those in his truck. Way cool stuff. Would definately be interested in a rear door mount system for a station wagon.

Gotcha, is it possible to add footman loops to mount the net to?

That's no problem at all, although we do already made an overhead (part R.5 and several other sizes) that would work for that. The capacity is 800lbs and up.

So, what's behind that panel, suitable metal to mount to? If so, let's get some measurements going. :

If you took this same idea, and added steel braded and shielded cable, running it sandwiched through all the webbing, you would have the first "soft" internal dog/security guard I've seen, and I would definitely buy that. you could even do the same with the all the rear SW windows, and have the expedition rear security area, all mollied up for extra utility. I think we're onto something here.

We've actually offered something very much like that a number of years ago. Besides being extremely difficult to manufacture, they just didn't sell well enough to continue. We sold the remaining stock for well below our costs to make them unfortunately.

Basically, the only real benefit is that it's harder to cut (need wire cutters) but the attempt to cut them damaged the outer coating and required replacement.

We use 1,000 lb. strength UV and saltwater grade web and materials through out. I recommend tying the ends up into a wrap and knot to really slow someone down that is trying to get into the rig. Really helps a bunch on the grab and run type theft.

I have a ROW 110 and an internal cage is being fabricated this week. I plan to install this webbing behind the second row to contain my dogs or pelican cases. Gave some thought to the metal mesh dog guards, but prefer the webbing. I had one bad nightmare about rolling into a creek and my dogs drowning because I couldn't get the rear door open. Call me paranoid, but like the idea of being able to cut the webbing, if need be. Mark

Nothing fancy or elaborate. Just something to provide one-time protection in the event of highway roll-over or flop on the trail. Three hoops; behind front row similar to CT110, behind second row, and rear of truck. Horizontal bars along the roof line using Ballistic Fab connectors. All hoops connected to the frame, plus some bracketry to tie into the B-pillars, etc. Will pass on images / details if interested when I get the truck back. Matt @ Rockware is doing the work.

Very interested in seeing as many pictures as you are willing to take, I'd love to get one into mine.

Thanks!

The overhead one would be pretty sweet in the back of the 90. How wide is it? I'm concerned for the headroom of the occasional backseat passenger.
