Default Cargo Net Installed

As many have found, the D doesn't come with upper cargo net hooks. Very frustrating when you find yourself having to go across the street to retrieve an onion that rolled out of the back when you open it. I ordered the Dodge cargo net (part # 55217379) and, as many attempted, started to jury rig something to work, using the plastic bag hook that's on the right and for example the velcro hook set up like this:
http://dodgeforum.com/forum/3rd-gen-...net-hooks.html

However, the hooks would not stay on mine and wanted something that looked like it belonged... not jury rigged. So I searched for something that would work and found my solution with the Toyota 4Runner. There are cargo net hooks (part # PT347-35991-HK) that are approx $3 or $4. I thought that was per hook, so I ordered 2. When they arrived I found out that it comes with 2 hooks, so I now have extra, but at that price I don't mind:

They are easy to install, just a flat headed bolt that goes through the panel and the hook screws onto it. It does require drilling through the panel and access to the back of it (both very easy):

After installing it looked much better in my opinion and the plastic bag hooks are still usable if needed. This is the cargo net that can be opened on the top to hold things in it as well:

Of course if you decide to do this, where you place the upper hooks are up to you. Just make sure you take the time to measure and be certain they are where you want them. At least there is finally a good fix to the lack of these hooks.

Thanks everyone! I got to test it with a big shopping load and it was great being able to open the rear door from the switch before I got out and not the at the back door ready to catch things pose I'd gotten used to.

And of course they don't show the left side to see what on earth they attached it to! Mine definitely didn't have anything there to hook it on. Of course the mopar.com and no site I could find listed/pictured the 3rd gen D cargo net accessory either. I have heard people had the net come with theirs as a dealer added item, but again it came in the back and they found nothing to hook the upper left corner to. Just seems like something Dodge dropped the ball with. I keep finding it more and more unfortunately. Like the parts listing/diagram not matching what the vehicle actually has or is built. And trying to get the electric power steering fluid the OM states to use, but the dealer database only lists AFT fluid... very frustrating.

I always back into my driveway now, so the back end is going uphill, hoping that will help. Then I go around and open from the back and I do the same thing, I have the "wait to catch things" pose.

I'm going to have to check out that cargo net option you have there, VERY good idea!!

Just last night I went shopping. Came home, opened the rear hatch from inside, heard a thud and knew something fell out. By the time I got to it a half gallon of laundry detergent was all over the driveway. I will be getting a net ASAP. Had pick up before this so its all new to me. Plus I'm a dumb ***.

These are the same reasons my wife and I miss being able to open the back glass, we usually take the suburban grocery shopping because we can open the glass and pull anything out that will fall, before opening the hatch. Looks like Ill be getting the net also.

Default Another solution...

Net looks nice. Another solution to rolling groceries is to get a cargo area mat. I have the Huskyliner mat (fits cargo area behind second row, does not fit with three rows of seats). It has a pretty good size lip at the tailgate that keeps stuff in.

I got it to try and keep yellow lab hair under control, but does help a little with above mentioned issue.

Where did you get the net from, if I may ask?

Thanks

fbures: I just searched the part number for the net on google and ordered it from a site. It was only about $25-30 for it, then about $3 for the hooks, so a good deal for the headaches it's stopped me from having.

Edited: Looked through my records and found I ordered the K82210267 part number... supposedly has hardware, didn't come with any.

Can you provide us with the link for the cargo net. I purchased one using the part number that you listed and I got one for a jeep. The things is half the size of the trunk area. The hooks were dead on. I got two sets because I plan to install it as close to the door as possible.

Part # 55217379 is for a jeep... I found part # 82210267 on ebay and on the Mopar sites and is for the 2005-2009 durango. I am not sure if it will fit the 2012 Durangos.

I just ordered the net from justjeeps.com and the hooks. A couple weeks ago I opened the liftgate and a bag with two bottles of wine fell out and broke on the pavement, was a wonderful smelling $120.00 spill! eager to get the net installed!
