Basically copied what another member did. I think his link is noted above somewhere. Took approx three 2x3s, a piece of plywood, some rubber feet so there is not rattling, L brackets to utilize the factory mounting points the plastic filler piece used, and a lock
Used two 4-packs of these which help with rattling as well elevates the wood to make things flush
Lid is hinged in the back
Was thinking of a way to secure the back end so it is not jumping around sa I drive down the road and decided to add a lock
Also shows the cargo cover I got back in April 2014
Then has some wood left over and made a pet step for my dog. Just need to throw some carpet on it.
