    Hi Guys,

    I just bought 2017 XLT and am looking into increasing the hidden storage. I remember reading in the past that someone figured out how to access the wheel well area. It looks like the panels on the top can be removed. I have done several searches both on the site and using google without finding much.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,
    CV

    The trays on top just pop out.
    Start in the middle near the glass to pop it out. Takes a bit of force.

    Personally I like to lock things in the car when doing things like beach or swimming.

    I just popped mine out. I have a lot of spider webs.

    I meant the interior wheel wells, on either side in the trunk area on the inside of the car. I just want to stow jumper cables, water bottles, and a few other emergency things out of the way so that they don't take up any space in the car. I will try to pop out the trays.

    Just remember it will be a reverse door ding if you are rough.
