You got a closeup pic of the setup?
Here you go! I can provide links to serious people that are interested.
These are the buckles I use to secure the cargo net once I loop it around the rack. buckles purchased on amazon.

I attach it to the trail rails thru grommets I installed in the cargo net. Bolt goes thru grommet into a cam in the trail rail

the back panel has quick release buckles that clip to the tailgate so this cargo panel is secured & does not flop around in the wind

These are the second half of the buckles attached to the tailgate. Grommets in the strap and factory torx tailgate bolts

These are the lap belts that attach to the dogs harness. Belts are bolted thru the bolt that secures the rack to the trail rail

This is what the cargo panel looks like from the outside

Awesome. This is so helpful. It’s been a month and still waiting on my darn rack. I’m ready to cancel the order and just find something else at this point.

Yeah i knew from the get go that racks were going to take forever to trickle in for the JT so that is why I went the custom route. Hope your rack comes soon!

We have a GSD and no kids, so we don’t need the back seats. When I got the truck the first thing I did was remove the rear seats, remove the carpeting, and sprayed the entire floor with Lizard Skin. I put Weathertech floor mats in the front. Now it’s easy to sweep up the dog hair. I built this deck out of 3/16 aluminum diamond plate and sprayed the top surface with Lizard Skin. The support for the decking is made of 1” square tube. I got tiedown rings and put them under the four floor bolts and the six bolts holding the back roof on, so I have plenty of tie down options. It’s easier for the dog to get in and out, and he s got a stable platform to move around on. The total cost was about $650. The main cost $550 was getting the aluminum with water jet cut out. I made cardboard templates for the water jet. I built it with the 60/40 split so I can remove either side and put the seat back.

They are Weathertech door protectors. The work great and keep the dog collar and tags from scratching the panels. They clean up easy. I got them on Amazon.
