The Rugged Ridge Overhead Storage Console is the storage solution you have been waiting for. It instantly turns the area underneath your top into usable storage space without any interference or modification to your vehicle. Fits all 2007-2012 Jeep Wranglers! Works with soft tops, hardtops, the top up, or the top down. The Overhead Storage Console is a fully enclosed storage compartment that installs easily without any tools or drilling. It is constructed from durable blow molded High-Density polyethylene (HDPE), so it is safer and lighter than steel. A nonskid pad is adhered to the inside of the console to help keep you gear from sliding around, and a mesh storage net helps keep it safely stowed yet easily accessible. The console measures 41.5x2.5x6.5 inch and offers more than 450 cubic inches of storage.
Doesn't live up to my expectations, unfortunately. Review by Sarah P.
I got this (as a requested gift from my mom earlier in the year) in hopes that I could have a little extra storage area in my 2001 TJ. As anyone who has a TJ knows, there's not a whole lot of room for.. anything!
Install was extremely easy, it only took me a few minutes and I am not mechanically inclined at all. You just need a wrench, a socket, and your hands.
Design is, to put it bluntly, rather terrible. I'm not sure how it works with YJ, JK, JKU, etc, or even with a TJ with a hardtop (I only have a soft top), but on my Jeep it lasted less than a week. The velcro straps that were included to go around the roll bars were more than long enough, but the velcro areas were spaced incorrectly. I have padding on my roll bars, but even with that, the lengths between the soft and scratchy areas were so off that I couldn't even use them to attach the sides. I had to tie them on with paracord.
The goal is to get it as far forward as possible, so you don't bang your head on it, and so it's the most secure. However, the spaces in the console where the soft top latches go are not big enough, and I couldn't get my soft top latched. I had to loosen all the areas where the console was now tied on, just to latch my soft top back on. Also, I again only had in installed for about a week, and in just that week (with absolutely nothing in it yet) the console had already drooped down considerably in the middle.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone else (with a soft top TJ, at least). I was really disappointed in it, and because my mom got it for me, she was also disappointed that I wasn't happy with it.
My suggestion would be to improve overall design, and also make the console out of a more sturdy material. (Posted on 12/1/2014)
