    The tool pouch roll and the air tool bag is a perfect fit in the tray behind the rear passenger seat, like it was designed for them.

    I really like having a trauma bag behind my headrest, it’s a quick reach from anywhere in the truck. I generally keep a couple of pouches on the passenger headrest for the kids to put stuff in and play with. I keep a fleece and jackets in the attic, keeps them up and out of the way.

    I do, @cloudburstadventures. I don’t post a lot, I’m the worst at taking lots of pics and not doing anything with them. I suppose that’s a good New Years resolution...

    @BlueRidgeOverlandGear Love the new molle panels. Quality is amazing. Sad I missed out on the free patch. I guess you guys ran out. Ended up tucking the dump pouch under the headrest. My minions are set for road trips.

    I like the attic, but things would fly out. So I mounted it upside down and use the lacing to secure stuff.

    Yeah, it's not really designed or intended to be used with small solid objects like that ram-mount or those wiper blades. It's meant for soft/fluffy things like jackets, pillows, blankets, etc.

    Lol, I just tossed those items in there to test it. But honestly it curls the front edge up and keeps items, even soft ones, from falling out. And allows headroom for the back seats.

    Not trying to make you change anything, just, my solution.

    Thanks again!

    I ran a 30" bungee cord across the front on the attic. Looping both ends through the handholds creates enough tightness to help keep items from falling out. A short-stop to avoid hitting a turtle crossing the road was all the field testing required to ensure that the bungee was sufficient. Great product! One suggestion though... You should add a small note or instruction page on how to remove the read hanger (clothes) hooks from the top of the rear area. It was easy to find the how to on YouTube but it would have saved me valuable seconds if that info was included. Thanks and keep up the great work!

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    I'll have to give the bungee idea a try. Most of the time I don't have too many problems if it's packed tight enough, but if I don't have much in the attic this should help. Thanks for the idea.

    Didn't even know they were a vendor here. I've got their visor pouches, air tools bag, recovery bag, and of course patches. Solid stuff.
