2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Using This Truck As A Bed

July 05, 2012

jeep_gcsrt8_cargo_sleep.jpg One thing about 24 hour-long races - they're 24 hours long. You gotta catch some Zs at some point during the race. For me the best bet was in the cargo area of our longterm 2012 Jeep GC SRT8. I folded down the backseats and threw down a Thermarest and some blankets.

I had to lay kittycorner to fit all 6'1" of me, and those backseats don't fold completely flat. But when it's 3:30am and you've been awake for 22.5 hours - five of which entailed wheel to wheel racing - even this suboptimal slumber zone is a little slice of heaven.
