    • I like the divider a lot @SQRLPWR! My Heep came with an aluminum basket that attaches to the cage and divides the rear space when the back seat is removed. I've kept it as I like the idea of splitting the vertical space for more storage.
    • Do it!  I’ve planned/wanted a similar cover/divider for the Suburban.  Been on my long list forever.  It will allow me to securely store tools underneath, and give a nice working surface above.  I’m considering a flip/hinged open top as well.🤔
    • Thinking about some kind of sectioned off area in the back of the Zuk because with the soft top, out of sight is out of mind; I'm storing a spare tire there I like to carry some parts and tools, just in case So, I mocked up a divider out of scrap wood. I'm thinking really simple and not necessarily super secure, either ply top covered in speaker carpet with 2 sides, or a fitted canvas/tarp arrangement. Pros/cons plywood - cost, concerned about if I get rear-ended, solid, can add rails on top for extra carry capacity, could be a place to mount radios etc., IDK how I would fold the soft top down canvas/tarp - cheap, might be noisy, easy to remove/change if needed I'm on the fence.
    • It’s good that you can do the maintenance!
    • Recently noticed the spare tire was moving a lot more than normal. So I had to remove the spare tire and carrier temporarily because the supports are cracked through the bumper and the tire was starting to hit the tailgate lol I need to beef up the bumper some more to give that massive 35" tire some extra support. That's  a LOT of weight hanging back there. Looks a little sad without it lol
