    There are a few places around here to go. I spend a lot of time at "Moonlight" in Sullivan because is only a 45min drive. theres a nice one in Farmington called "Waa" that has a awesome view from the top of the ridge.

    In West County St. Louis, MO. Just bought first....and second...XJs.....'99 and '01 Sports.....for running to/from and use at property in North Central MO. Bought '99 and friend said "that's too nice to take to the farm." Think she has her eye on it!!! Of course, she was right....so I bought the '01...Forest Green...perfect color for the property. Both stock. Planning on 3-4.5" lift; 30-32" skins; receiver hitches front and rear for basket carriers, bike rack, small trailer, and winch. No plan to heavy wheel....just utility reliability to get around on the property (1400 acres). I'm bitten by the XJ bug already. Used the '01 for deer season....performed well in the mud from first weekend of non-stoop rain....and following 3/8" ice storm.

    Need ideas for secure storage in back for valuables.....her purse ....laptop, shooting gear....to replace locked trunk of other vehicles. Searched this site without finding much. Can't be the first to miss a locked, out of sight trunck.

    Any groups/individuals in the St. Louis area? Would like to make contacts and learn from more experienced Jeep owners. Best 4x4 equipment sources in St. Louis area?

    I can't recall a thread specifically on that. But if you don't plan on using the back seat, that is a perfect area. Build a box that is even with the rear cargo floor board up to the lip for the front of the seat. You could store a rifle easily there as well as tools etc. That I have seen done and considering doing that myself
    230 hp 4.3L Chevy
    Built 4L60E with manual lockout
    Atlas 4 speed
    Griffin radiator
    On board air
    Warn 9.5ti on custom bumper
    7.5" RE front and bastard pack rear on custom long arms
    30 gal gas tank
    lockers
    And a bunch of other stuff

    The first idea that comes to mind is the OEM pull-out cargo cover.
    Kinda rare in the XJ market, but one for a ZJ (grand cherokee) are a little more common, and may or may not be able to be modified to work with an XJ.
    The other idea is a false floor in the back. Basically, you're installing a slide out drawer that from the outside looking in, just looks like the regular floor of the cargo area, but once the rear gate is open, you see the face of the drawer.
    This can be locked of course, or just left as "out-of-sight-out-of-mind"

    Another option would be to bolt down (from the inside) a locking ammo box or the like, to somewhere in the cargo area.
