Overhead shelf for the Zuk

Since I have a hardtop, I am looking for an overhead shelf that can handle my two radios. Anyone come across such a critter?

I'm guessing you could put the Tuffy Overhead Center Console in:

Re: Overhead shelf for the Zuk

Thanks for the info. I am making a wish list that I can do in the near future as money comes in. I think this will get in the way of my fishing rod rack, but not sure.

Take care,

Jim

Re: Overhead shelf for the Zuk

how elaborite do you want it to be I biuilt one for my soft top that worked realy well it was just 2 square tubes going acrost and everything was just sitting on top of the bars and held in place with double stick tape it shouldnt be that hard to do one for a hard top it would just have to be wider but this offers no theft protection but they are cheap and easy to build

I just zip-tied a piece of plywood between the two windshield braces. Worked very well for my CB. Mounted the CB on the underside of the plywood.

Re: Overhead shelf for the Zuk

I was hoping I could find something like a "Shelf-It" product, but I realize that I may have to fabricate. I thank you for the come back and the info.

Take care,

Jim

Re: Overhead shelf for the Zuk

I had a custom made one for my Samurai once. Quite easy to make. I took some slabs of sheetmetal and cut them out to fit up there, and then welded sides, a top, and bottom to it, as well as a front. I cut holes in for my CB and radio, and made little doors for storage. I bolted it to the windshield frame, and away I went! It worked PERFECTLY until I was driving one day with the top off, and the darn thing ripped right off and went flying behind me! Ripped the wires and everything. I am going to make a new one as soon as I get a new engine for the Zuk, but this Time I'm going to probably bolt it on AND weld it. I'll think of some way to make it secure this time!

Re: Overhead shelf for the Zuk

Thanks for the great idea. I am not good at fabricating, but even I think I could make something similar to work.

Thanks again,

Jim
