I run mine on my back single seat folded down in the WJ.
I have seen some people put quick release pins on the bottom bit that folds up so that can easily be removed for more footwell space

That is what I do, I have a 65 liter Dometic- it is tall and when sat on top of the folded seat the lid doesn't open all the way. Not a complete deal breaker but a slight bummer. Also, if you're not over 6ft tall (I'm not) then it can be a pain to see down into the bottom, if your jeep is lifted I imagine that would make it worse... I often think about removing the seat, but since I tend to stay places a couple nights in a row I usually just take the fridge out and put it on the ground next to the jeep anyway...


...sent from my an evil pocket calculator with a flashy screen...

Thatís an interesting point, I think that for trips with the family Iíd end up taking the fridge out and putting it on the ground as per your suggestion because even though I can see in it by stretching up, my wife certainly couldnít

I have a 40 litre Engel mounted in place of the single rear seat on a custom built platform with tie downs. Works well and I can just get the lid fully open.



I'm pretty sure that if you don't remove the seat you will access issues and won't get the lid open enough.

Cheers,

hmm that might be an option when the oldest hits 7 and i can remove a booster seat and would make camping trips with the kids much easier to fit everything inside the car

Thanks for all the pics and suggestions everyone. I think Iím going to do something like this, even though the single seat is on the driverís side and I have my awning on the passenger side. Seems like a really efficient use of space

Make sure you set it up so you can see the controls easily and the cables are safe.
