Intro Comments: My intention in buying the X was to have a vehicle I could use for exploring and for long road trips (thus no real need for large lift or bigger tires). I was not originally planning to do some of the rougher trails that I've been on, but they have been fun (and a good learning experience).

Action Packer boxes work well.

Nice rig Frank. I also like those Raingler nets. I think it was you that told me about a certain sized cooler that fits in between the drivers seat and the rear seats that acts as a bed extender when the rear seat bottoms are removed. Are those action packers the ones that fit? If not which ones are you using for that. I need to pick me up some. See ya round.

I don't have dimensions handy, but it's the only size I've seen at my local Wal-Mart. It is not all that big, and I think the price is under $20 (maybe closer to $15). The bigger ones at REI, for example, are taller. You want the short one, or it won't be the same height as the folded down floor.

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure those are the 8-gallon boxes.

where does one buy those Raingler interior cargo nets? Those are sweet!
Cargo Net
I bought both of mine direct from Raingler. Looks like they have a new site now, but they do show all of the products, unlike some other places that only carry some.

Actually I wanted the (slightly faster) yellow, but could not find one in 4WD with side airbags anywhere nearby. Because I insisted on the side airbags, 4WD and AT, my choices were a white OR, a black OR or the black S that I bought. At the time I had no idea that an e-locker would be a nice thing to have, all I noticed was that they wanted $2K more for a fancy stereo I would not be able to discern the difference in from a plain one.

Now (too late) I know better about the e-locker, but the S has served me well, and I've never needed the locker. You can do a lot with left foot on brake right foot on gas in a pinch.

so does that net hook into the existing head liner hooks?
It uses the 4 existing hooks in the ceiling and the grab handles over the rear doors.

The Raingler ceiling net is great, mine is permanently stocked with spare clothes, emergency bedding, etc. Stuff that I don't get at often but like to have in the X at all times. It's out of the way, and does not get in the way when sleeping in the back. A lot easier on the head than one of those Lobo shelves too.
