    Default Storage Area for your XJ

    OK... still working on the diamond tread. But I was reading another thread where (forgot the name) said that he left his out for the extra storage space.
    Well, I like storage space!

    Be strong when you are weak.
    Be brave when you are afraid.
    Be humble when you are victorious.
    But be a badass everyday!

    I have stuff packed back there, too often to put speakers that low... in height ~ not range... that I'm working on a mount to put my speakers higher up = above the windows.
    * I think some of the newer XJ's or maybe fancy model XJ's had a stock mount like that.

    This is very nice. Someone knows a thing or two about sheet metal.
