If you want some background on the truck look here:
Just you basic stock 2005 Tacoma DoubleCab Short Bed
The current issue was my wife and I had recently purchased an EdgeStar Fridge/Freeze vs. the ARB for cost reasons. The problem is this thing was large.
When I say large mean it would take up half the back seat when in use. This wasn't working for me so I decided to do something about it.
First I removed the seat bottom, then the seat back, then the plastic crap taking up more room.
Was left with something like this:
So I made a rack to host some secure tie-down points:
Then reversed the hinges on the fride so I could tuck it closer to the back of the cab and not need room for the lid to clear when opened:
Swapped out the handles for some brackets made of angle:
Then mounted it in the truck:
Relocated the latch:
Floor storage still works:
All in all I gained tons of interior storage back by removing the seat and other crap. Gonna add some dynamat to help deaden the road noise, but eh...its a wheeler!
Thanks for looking!
