If you have a Bug Out Vehicle chances are you have a lot of gear to go inside it. I personally drive a Bug Out Jeep. It’s my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JKU). I’ve not owned it long so I have not been able to do much to outfit it for survival just yet, but I plan to build it a lot overtime.
In the mean time I wanted to maximize my organization and storage capacity, but the all the mods for these Jeeps can get quite expensive. So I started thinking from a DIY perspective. A couple months earlier we picked up some shelving unites from Walmart. I ended up taking 1 shelf off of one of the units, and it fit very well in the back of the Jeep. I secured it to the back seats in such a way that when the seats folded down it took the shelf with it, and it also gave it more stability during the ride. Here’s some photo’s of the whole process. (Disregard the ridicules amount of husky hair lol)
If you are interested in throwing something together like this for yourself. I found a good deal on a similar shelving unit right HERE. Also, you can pick up a plastic drawer unit. The one I used was a 3 drawer unit, and I actually took off one of the drawers to make it fit under the shelf, and it fit’s perfectly with no room to spare.
I will eventually be upgrading to a real shelf unit that’s made for the Jeep but for the time being, this will hold me over and give me close to the same function.
What are some of the things you guys have done to your BOV’s to customize them? I’m always interested in learning more awesome ways to customize my Jeep, especially DIY things. If you feel this helped you please share it with your friends who might enjoy it! I plan to go into a big review on my Bug Out Jeep at a later date when I do some building to it.
