Hi, I just got a 2013 Trax with 2LT AWD, its a great vehicle to drive with so far, waiting for the winter and snow to see how does the stock tires handles the snow here in manitoba. May I ask some ideas as where to start for building a cargo shelf. I was looking to start as a mounting point on the attached picture (encirled) but cant seem to find any parts that would fit to it. Any ideas? Please see photo attached. Thanks.

If your Trax is a 2LT you should have received the shelf with the car.

It came with my 1LT and it came with my Buick Encore, before trying to make one take a look at the one that came with the car.

If the one that came with the car is suitable for your use I would ask the dealer where you bought it where the **** is it.

Here are a couple stock photos I found. Here in Canada, local dealer lists price of $127; look for a used one or maybe e-bay etc.. Shelf works well to hide area beneath and store items not too heavy on top of it.

Thanks, I will asking the dealer tomorrow then. But still looking to find ways to make a shelf to carry weight and still be able to store something beneath.

The best thing you can do to add more weight to the shelf is add a brace either run a piece of metal like a tube or a solid bar under the shelf or cut a piece of wood to go from the floor to the center of the brace.

You could also strenghten it with a piece of plywood cut to fit under the shelf to keep the shelf from bending.

Welcome to the forums ! I would be pretty upset if the dealer duped me like that though. It may have been an accident, may not, go and ask anyways. But congratulations on the purchase !

Sadly, the shelf didnt come with it, as what the dealer said, they said that they checked the manufacturer history and even contacted the previous owner and the previous owner didnt have it at any time. Looks like i really need to make one rather than buying it for over a 100 bucks. Whats your take?

dealer will always be able to order one. If not a required item now, watch the forum for one being sold and other web sites for a deal.
