In preparation for the storage cabinets I'm building, new roof insulation and also to figure out a small leak, I took out all the headliner. This allowed me to use these nifty little magnet hooks (strong enough to each hold 9kg) onto the roof/pillars to partly support these cargo nets. Nothing fancy here but very practical (it's amazing how much stuff you can store up there)! The nets can be secured with some extra hooks to avoid contents spilling out when on a rough road (4th picture). Gotta love those high roofs!

Also got started on my wood cabinets but still a long way before the project is fully completed. Anyway, here's a few pictures of the beginning but I'll create a distinct post later on for the full project.

Cheers!

It's freezing here so no issues yet and as I said in the original post I removed the headliner to do a proper insulation job... better for both cold or hot than the original design.

As for roll over or accident, if that happens I'll have bigger concerns than seeing my clothes or sleeping bag possibly going for a wild ride.

I'm surprised there's so much concerns about these cargo nets? It's not like I'm storing my toolbox in there... I've been in pretty rough roads with a similar system in my previous truck and it's never been an issue, not even close.

Anyway, just sharing a project that may or not come handy to someone else.

Cheers!

It reminds me of the early rangies. had a similar design.

I think it would be very handy, might try and work something on a smaller scale into mine.

Top idea

if you could set up a similar system, but with the roof lining installed i reckon it'd be an awesome idea!

good stuff.

Ive had a cargo net up at roof level for years, there great for jackets, 1st aid kit and wet weather gear, even the odd blanket or two

IIRC, he actually was toying with that idea. ;) I think he made the better choice. :driving:

Exactly what I'm planning on doing to my shorty, since the rear fibreglass canopy has the perfect space for it.

If anything, I reckon storing clothes & bedding up there will provide some summertime insulation.

Looks the goods abitibi, thanks for sharing :D
