exact same thing happened to me, those two plastic supports just broke off, dealer never explained that there is in fact 2 positions for the trunk floor, for heavy loads, the lower position has to be used ( remove the floor part and place it under the plastic supports) this is a very very poor design and not explained in the owner manual, I'm done with jeep :(

So you overloaded it and you're mad at Jeep? The trunk floor is plastic, not cast iron. I've put some heavy loads in mine (like a load of flagstone for a DIY landscaping project) but I made sure the load was supported and spread out. No problem here.

Actually there are 3 positions plus you can prop it up in the upright position.

I want to report, the rear plastic panels are the worst part of my Jeep.
They crack, they bend, make noise, clunk, not aligned, sensitive to sun heat... shortly cheaper than it should be.

Get a sheet of plywood and throw a spiffy rug remnant over it. :sneaky:

Actually I plan to use it as a cargo space to transport a huge dog back there. If anyone asks what's with the mess with plastic panels, calmly I could say "HE DID IT, it's not a Jeep's fault"
