I was looking at that possibility last night . Thinking Rubicon here and either having the 2nd row seats out or folded.

A quick look makes me think the net would work behind the second row seats but it would require some creativity on mounting points. You would definitely need to come up with some way to attach the bottom straps to the floor and then something to attach the top straps to. Possibly the grab handles again?

As a point of time reference, it took me about 10 minutes Monday night to remove the net and reinstall it "upside down" so the net is definitely quickly movable. Much quicker to install and remove than the metal doggy barrier I used in the past, and the net doesn't leave a "dent" in the headliner . Although the dent went away so maybe that isn't a concern.
