Jeep Wrangler jk and jl Storage Mods | for 4doors jeeps

  • Save

As jeepers we all know that we have a limited space in our jeeps. This will mostly come into our minds, when we are planning an overlanding or a few days road trip with our family. 

That’s why I tried to find perfect ways of managing this limited space for our journey. I have done a lot of searches on improving wrangler storage space and found a lot of cool mods to do that.

I’m going to tell you everything I had found in my research.so without further ado let’s get started.

When going to talk about storage mods there are a lot of things you can do to your wrangler. Even in such a limited space you can pack luggages of 5 people for a full time overlanding!!

Things you can do with a jeep is actually unlimited. We can modify and organize the passenger area, cargo area and roof top to pack everything we need for a journey.   If it’s a journey of a few weeks or few months we can add a trailer and get a lot more space. So let’s see what are the mods we can do in that order.


Storage Mods For Passenger Area.

First you have to think about how many people travel with you in the jeep. 

If you have 3, 4 or 5 people, mods in the passenger area will be reduced. But don’t worry. It’s not a problem at all.

Cargo hitch racks and waterproof bags

A 4door jeep with a roof rack may not need this. But for a small size jeep specially 2door jeeps may get benefit from this.

You can use your hitch mount to install an extra rack to keep your luggage. There are lifted versions of this to eliminate ground clearance problems.

But if your jeep has rear parking sensors, they may obstruct with this kind of rack.

Spare wheel trash bags

These mods will improve your jeep’s limited storage space as much as you want for an overlanding trip.
