  • Go to your local hardware store and look for a black "Utility Mat" with rubberized backing.
  • Find one that is 4'x3' or larger (i.e. 4'x4' or 4'x6')
  • You want the rubberized backing to protect against spills should you end up carrying something wet.
  • Look for Black with lighter flecks, these seem pretty standard and somewhat easy to find (it also perfectly matches the interior). I have seen them for between $15-$20, cheaper if your lucky.
  • Once at home flip the mat rubber side up and mark it to the dimensions shown below. (see picture) The fewer cuts the better, consider using a straight edge like a metal ruler if you have one available.
  • Using a good pair of scissors or alternatively a utility knife cut to size.
  • The most challenging cut is the slightly rounded edge, however cut it larger, then trim after test fitting a couple times in your cargo area if you are worried.
The nice thing about these is they allow easy cleaning (remove and shake off), you can even hose them down if something really crazy happens. You can also lift them and quickly gain access to the spare tire area (some folks use that to store odds/ends).
Is that a MOPAR mesh thing in the top pic? What's the part number?

You meant the rear organizer net?

Mine came with the Trailhawk. It was in a plastic bag stuffed in the spare tire. :P

I'm sure it has a part number, however I think it's something that is supposed to be in the vehicle.

No, it's an option. I just went to the stealership and order mine. Seems like it was $25-$30.

It definitely wasn't an option for me. Like the Trailhawk kit, it was included.

And, like the Trailhawk bag, you can also buy it separately.

That's exactly what I was hoping would come with the TH. I looked where the spare tire is in my TH but didn't see a plastic bag or anything looking like a mesh organizer. Was it easily noticeable on top of your spare tire or hidden underneath? Like someone else said, no big deal if it's missing as I could order it and $25 or so isn't much but would be nice if it were in my TH somewhere
