Cargo Barrier/Partition for Safari?

Cargo Barrier/Partition for Safari?

Postby ri$e*above [OP] » July 7th 2020, 3:15am

I took out the 3rd row seat and carpet in the back of my 2002 Safari and plan to use it as a cargo area. Has anybody installed a barrier/partition in their van behind the 2nd row seat? I'm wanting it to go directly behind the 2nd row seating. I'm guessing it's gonna have to be a custom thing...unless there's any companies that make specific ones for our vans or maybe a universal one that can be trimmed up? Something like this...

if you have junkyards in your area look for commercial/contractor vans. the bulkheads they use behind the front seats could be adapted to your application.
here's a couple of pics of an Adrian 2-piece bulkhead i'm using in my van.

Adrian also made a full width bulkhead with the see-thru perforations like on the passenger side of mine - if you get lucky it would be a good score for you !!!

That would be ideal if I could find one in a JY. I'll try calling around.

Do you know if the Chevy Express van ones will fit the Astro/Safari? I'm guessing not.

the express/savana would be wider & taller. the bulkhead metal is pretty thick though & could be cut up. the big "1-piece" bulkhead is actually 4 pieces bolted together, 2 narrow sides & the main center top & bottom pieces. same deal with ford econolines & the dodge full size vans.

Gonna get to finding a local JY that has some cargo vans and see if i can find one. Be cheaper and easier than buying one for a bigger van.

Thanks :thumbup:
