Jeep Wrangler Mattress Mod

As I prepare my Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for my upcoming Adventure, I am looking for low cost ways to outfit my Jeep. I will be living in my Jeep full time for a month, which means I need a good place to sleep. In October I will hit the dirt paths with fellow Jeeper Neil in his 1980 Jeep Grand Wagoneer where we will spend a month driving across America. 


I have been scouring the internet for inexpensive mattresses that will fit in the Wrangler. I have taken out my rear seats to give me a little more room. 


There are several different blow up camping mattresses and memory foam mattresses but they are all over $100 which is beyond my budget. I finally found a 4" foam mattress on sale at Mattress Firm. It measured 4" thick x 39" width and 75" long. About 5" too long for my JKU. It fits perfectly width wise even with my MorRyde ammo can carrier shelves.  




So I went about modifying the mattress to fit length-wise in the Jeep. All I needed was a box cutter, scissors and bread knife. Super easy modification and I got two pillows out of the deal. 







Check out my Mattress Modification video on You-Tube to see how easy it is to make this mattress fit!!! 






The really good news is this mattress will fit perfectly in Neil's 1980 Waggoneer, Maggie May!

  2. Looks good. Can you please suggest the best mattress for elderly? I already searched for the nearest local market but I think those are not comfortable for seniors. You know it's come sensitive when it's about seniors. Besides, my grandfather is now 81 years old. So he needs some extra care.
