There are quite a few systems for suvs (low profile storage boxes and drawer systems) for suvs that might fit or be customization for the Renegade, but racking systems, I haven't seen any.

There not a ton of room in one if these, curious why you would go with Renegade as a work vehicle?

Not trying to dissuade you in the least, just curious. If you were to take out the rear seat, the back would no longer be level. The amount of room you would gain would be negated by the fact that you would need something custom built to fill in the void left by a seat that folds (mostly) flat with the trunk floor.

Ford Transit Connects are all the rage down in San Diego when it comes to small business utility vehicles.

Further research has taught me that drawers are closer to what I want. Do you have a name for drawers that are either specific to the Renegade or might fit? I can imagine cutting a board that covers the whole cargo area and the drawers would be underneath. I plan on removing the back seat.

I need some room but not that much. A cube shaped room is preferable. The Transit Connect has much more room than I need and seems less off road capable. I go onto construction sites where the way has holes and bumps. I don't need extra traction. Extra clearance helps with holes, bumps, and snow. Plus, the vehicle would also be my personal vehicle so I'd want to buy something I like.

At this point in my research...

Here are a few tool and parts box and storage systems on the market.
- Dewalt TStak: Cheap. Variety of modules.
- Dewalt ToughSystem: Expensive. Strongest. Fewer types of modules.
- Bosch L-Box: Not cheap. Many different modules.
- Festool: Not cheap. Many different modules.
- Stanley Click-n-Connect: Few modules. No drawers.
- Milwaukee: Very few modules. No drawers.
- Sortimo: Very Expensive. No local dealer. Recommended by Adam Savage.

If price is the most important criteria then go with the Dewalt TStak.

If convenience is most important then go with Festool. This is my choice.

On the floor, you could place drawers on top of which you place the box system. I've found no big name products for these or any that are custom built to fit the floor geometry of the Jeep Renegade.

I'd really like to find a model specific safety barrier. A fence behind the driver.

I'm sure eventually the after market products for the Jeep Renegade will show up. Which manufacturers or stores are most likely to be the first to market?

Excellent @twospirits The barrier from Travall looks well designed. The Ergotech is not as solid. But, I need the barrier to be behind the driver and passenger seats. Not behind the second row seats. I'm afraid this last point will push me to build or modify one myself.
