    A lot of people do. ARB makes a nice slide out system for the back. They also make specific tie down straps for the cooler. I've seen slide out racks for trunk decks that then drop down to waist height with slide out cutting boards. Just depends on what you want to spend.

    Yup, you can use straps to hold it down, which works well or more elaborate setups.

    I tend to do just a little more

    That's a pretty serious setup. Way more than just ratchet straps. Think I'm just gonna go with the straps.

    Reviving this to see what sizes people are running? There are at least 4 by my count - 37/50/63/82qt. Any people get a smaller and wish they would have gotten larger? Vice versa?


    Also, has anyone looked at other brands like Dometic? ARB is the only brand I see people running, but occasionally I see some others like Engel. Curious if anyone has experience with any of them.

    Pretty happy with my 37qt in my 2dr JK. I restock in the morning with my beverages.

    The footprint between the 37 qt and 50 qt are the same. The only difference is approx 3" off the top.
    That being said, if you're not trying to save vertical space, the 50 qt is more efficient as you can place bottles of water in the rear/top compartment, standing up, but can't on the 37.
    Also full bottles of wine fit, standing straight up, in the front of the 50, but not in the 37. This was explained to me by a dealer, prior to my purchase.

    Good deal, thanks for the heads up. Has anyone tried the larger ones?

    Any thoughts on the other brands?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
