How do you know if it’s the right product for you? Well, here are two more questions to consider:
Is it something you can install on your own?
Does it fall within your budget?
I have been using the Goose Gear platform and storage system in my diesel Jeep JL since mid-October and I have to say, I have been very pleased with it so far. It has allowed me to completely redesign and reorganize the interior of my Jeep exactly how I want it to suit my needs.
One of the most appealing aspects of this system is the many different ways in which you can configure it. It’s kind of like Legos for Jeeps—you can mix and match different pieces, placing them whichever way works best for you. My setup includes:
The Jeep JLU Plate Systems
The Sleeping Platform w/ 60% Seat Delete
The Second Row Delete Infill Panel
The 60% Seat Delete Bracket
The Icebox 1.3 w/ Top Drawer (25” Deep Model)
The Double Drawer Module (18 3/16”W x 19”H x 25”D)
Note: Goose Gear is a U.S. based company so all of their products are made right here in the USA.
Jeep JLU Plate Systems 2018+
For the base platform (the plate system), you have the option of removing all the seats, removing just one or two, or keeping all of them. You also can opt to add storage units to the base platform system, add a seat delete option for increased space and storage, or just use it by itself.
IceBox 1.3 w/Top Drawer – 25” Deep Module
The IceBox module is designed with a complete fridge slide as well as a small storage drawer directly above. It includes a 100% extension fridge tray that can be locked into place so that it only slides out when you want it to.
The dimensions of the IceBox are 19 3/16”W by 27-1/2”H and 25” deep. There is a variety of fridges that are capable of fitting within these dimensions, and Goose Gear lists some of them as the fridges by ARB (up to 50qt), Engel (up to 45qt), Indel B (up to 40qt), and SnoMaster (up to 40qt). I’m using the Dometic 45L CFX and it fits perfectly.
If you already have a fridge (and it fits these dimensions), this is a great way to keep it secured in place and makes ease of access significantly better than if the fridge were strapped down. If you don’t own a fridge but are planning on buying one, another thing you’ll need to consider is which refrigerators will fit this module.
The system itself works very smoothly and you can tell that it is high quality. It has four sections that you screw into the platform and, with it being relatively lightweight, it’s easy to equip and unequip as you may see fit.
Double Drawer Module – 18 3/16”W x 25” Depth
If you’ve ever experienced the hassle of rummaging through all of your gear looking for a specific item and find yourself unloading half your vehicle in the process, I’ve been there and I feel your pain.
The double drawer setup will change your life because it makes grabbing that one specific item so much easier. It slides out smoothly and quickly, and is able to hold a substantial number of items.
