Bed Rail Ammo Can

Thanks
Tackleberry
This got me to create the following how to:





Get an ammo can of desired size, i got a large one cause i liked the size, but any size will do
NOTE: Short cans will sit level mounted on the side, tall cans sit crooked cause of the uneven sides. Tall cans sit great along the cab rail.

Mmmmm M224 Mortar


Monster sticker extra (dont think i like it)

Drill two... level holes... and there are two mounting options

Factory square head bolts and spin on "nuts"


OR

Make your own, I made these tonight just so i could show you guys/gals

Its not that hard, took me about 15min, and I had all the hardware...




Both mounting options fit the same in the truck

Have Fun! Hope it works out for people.

There's usually tons of them for sale for cheap (like $5) at gun shows.

I decided to clean this up a little this afternoon. It's pretty obvious what this is for. I have had to apply two tourniquets to injured motorcycle riders this past year so putting this on the outside should help for those "just in case" moments.

motorcycle riders should be required to be organ donors...if there are any organs intact to be used.
