    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from This is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Composite Overhead Storage Console fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this console, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches to get installed and we're also going to talk a little bit about some of the features. No matter what year or body-style Wrangler you have, getting a little bit more storage is always a good thing, so turning an unused area above the visors of your Jeep into an area where you can store small items is a great idea. This is going to be a composite storage location, which makes it really light, which also makes the installation very, very simple because there's no need to drill anything. This is just straps in place, using Velcro. This console is made of blow-molded high-density polyethylene and you gain 450 cubic inches of storage with this. It's a very lightweight material that's also very strong, which again makes for a very simple install. You have a non-skid floor on the inside, you have these mesh nets on the outside to keep items inside of the console even when you're driving on-road or even off-road, and those nets are strung up on elastic bands that are adjustable just to make sure nothing is gonna stretch out over time. I've mentioned a couple of times that the installation for this item is very, very simple, and I am giving this a one out of three wrenches because you can get it done in less than a half an hour with just a set of screw drivers. All you'll need to do when you take this out of the box is attach the metal mounts to the plastic console itself and finally take the Velcro straps out of the packaging and use those to latch the metal brackets to your sport cage. The console doesn't attach to the sport cage using any sort of bolts. There's no drilling, it's just that Velcro which is more than enough to keep it in place. Again, the installation shouldn't take you more than a half an hour and you won't need any special tools, just some screw drivers. At around $100, I think this is a pretty fairly priced item. From a fit and finish perspective, I think it's great. The mold is really clean, there are no sharp edges, it installs very easily, and you do gain a bit of storage, however, it's not going to be an area where you can store really large items. If you have a lot of smaller items or you like to empty your pockets out when you're driving without your doors on, this is going to be a nice, secure location to put those items. If you're looking to add some storage for smaller items inside of your Jeep that's going to keep everything nice and secure, and you want to be able to utilize an otherwise unused area, this is going to be a great option. That's my review with the Rugged Ridge Composite Overhead Storage Console, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers, that you can find right here at

    Design. This storage console by Rugged Ridge is made out of tough but lightweight high-density polyethylene and measures 41.5 inches long by 6.5 inches deep by 2.5 point inches high. The interior features both a non-skid pad on its floor and a mesh storage net, both of which help keep items safely inside the console. Total storage volume is 450 inches. The console does not interfere with Jeep operation and can be used just as easily with the top up or down.

    Storage Benefits. The Rugged Ridge composite overhead storage console proves as a combination box and shelf for keeping items of gear that are not too bulky, maps, books, spare sunglasses, canteens, electronics, CDs, and other smaller items. The mesh storage net prevents items stored inside from falling out, but keeps them conveniently ready to hand. This console attaches just below the roof line, and does not reduce the amount of space in the cab.

    Application. This storage console attaches to factory mounting points on the forward roll bars. No drilling or specialized tools are needed to mount it. Total time to assemble and fit the console varies from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the owner's experience with attaching accessories.

    The install video does not show it with a hard/soft top. Can you have the either top on with this product. Or does it only work without a top? I have a 2017 Please advise.


    • The Rugged Ridge Composite Overhead Storage Console can be used with both the soft top and the hard top, as well as with no top on.

    do you have to remove front section of hard top to install storage bin,or can you install from inside without removing top????


    • Yes, due to the way it mounts you will want the roll bars exposed when installing the Rugged Ridge Composite Overhead Storage Console. You can also reference the install guide on our site to see how it installs.

    Will it hold a full size CB mounted underneath?


    • Unfortunately, there is no weight limit on Rugged Ridge Composite Overhead Storage Console. It is only designed for extra storage to hold smaller items. It most likely won't be able to hold the weight of a full size CB radio.

    • The Rugged Ridge Composite Overhead Storage Console will still allow access to remove the front part of the factory hard top.

      Tight and well made

      Not a bad product, for sure. However, once installed, it is a little harder to snap my factory soft top front clamps down without loosening the storage console and moving it away from the windshield a few inches first. Nevertheless, it attaches with velcro, so it only takes a quick sec. A nice product. Doesn't rattle or make any weird noises when off-road, and it is out of the way. My only suggestion would be to possibly flip it over so it mounts a half inch higher. That way, the visors won't bump it. Still, an awesome product and the wife is happy.

      Poor Design

      Very frustrated and unhappy with the cheap and ineffective netting. There are clips on each end to keep tension on the netting but no way to keep the clips in place. I pity the poor soul that has to reinstall because they won't stay. I had to drill and use tie wraps. There are a couple of easy fixes if the manufacturer wants to give me a gift certificate for my suggestions and the time I wasted. Bet that never happens

      Maybe it's user error, but I could not figure out how to install this and still open/close my soft top. Managed to attach it the back area of my JK and the kids has both of the compartment nets broken within the hour. I would recommend shopping around for better storage. This was a bad use of $100.

Will need to be removed when you put on or take off your hard top. Removal will be simple. Just unstrap it.

      Much needed storage!

      I don't know how I have survived without the convenience of this overhead storage. What a great idea to put the storage overhead and out of the way. The compartments hold all the small items needed while driving. Took less than 15 minutes to install and fits my 2015 JK like a glove. Perfect buy for the money and a must have for every Wranglet owner!

      Very convenient and somewhat hidden storage

      It installed very easily except for my freedom top. Just had to take the panels off. Putting them back on was a little cramped but it's all set now! The rubber stickers that come with keep my phone and wallet from sliding on turns. Overall I love it and am happy to have the added storage. Might even be confident enough to leave things in it when I have the doors off. It is fairly out of plain view.

      Perfect Fit for adding storage

      The added storage is not plentiful, but large enough for folded maps, cell phones, sunglasses, etc. -- Never enough storage in a JK! All can be confidently held in place with the integral netting. Most important for me was that the console provided mounting space to perfectly fit the "Bayite LCD Display Digital Current Voltage Power Energy Meter", along with a surface mounted double DC receptacle with integral USB power outlets. Power and meter wiring was easily routed within the unit to the window pillars. All out of sight.

      Fit well in my jeep - easy to install, Once it was in place and lashed or strapped down it stiffened up - I intend to hang my cb radio on this animal - so I may have to stiffen it up some with additional bracing to carry the weight - hope not -will see. Has a lot of cubby holes for storage of paper work, records, and insurance cards for the jeep
