The Ford OEM Trunk Organizer
The new trunk organizer is a removable custom
fitted module which, when closed, creates a level floor space from the one ledge
on the left to the other on the right. There are 3 movable separators that
can be fitted into a wide variety of position in order to create 4 appropriately
sized compartments that can adapt to whatever is being stored. The access doors
are formed in such a way that access to any of the compartments can be gained
individually without being forced to remove the entire cover. The access
panels on the right side actually fold in half so as to clear the protruding
full sized, or temporary spare.
The access doors are reinforced on the
underside as can be seen from the shot above, and carpeted in matching color and
material for the typical Marauder, Grand Marquis, and Crown Victoria trunk
compartment. The doors on the left do not fold in half as they have no
obstructing spare tire in the way. One has to be sure to install
this trunk organizer correctly. There is an embossed arrow pointing to the
rear on the bottom, which should face toward the tail lights. The right
hand side seems to be a bit larger to accommodate the twin bi-fold doors.
Also included is a non-skid rubber mat designed to line the floor of the trunk
organizer to prevent stowage items from sliding about.
It is a terrific place to store jumper
cables, trouble lights, miscellaneous tools, and other items that might other
wise require some sort of unsightly caddy out in full view. The dividers
are easily moved as can be seen, with large grip handles near the top. The
even flat floor surface that is created is ideal of large bulky items, as can be
seem below. Ordinarily this type of cargo would sit in the deep well,
perhaps allowing one more. But as you can see here, there would be no
problem fitting another 2 tubs into the trunk now. There is plenty of
clean elevated room for suitcases, golf clubs and what have you. The floor
that is created is very strong and would support any kind of typical cargo
without any problem. As an added benefit, there is much less "lift over"
when getting things in and out of the trunk. As you can see, the floor is
now very nearly aligned with the top of the rear bumper. This would be
perfect when hauling groceries or shopping trips of any kind.
