Talking Fridge Mount 05 DCSB "Stock"

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!

That looks good. I've got an ARB 50qt and was looking for a way to mount it in the back. I was thinking of bolting a piece of wood to mounting points for the seat. I would put a fridge slide on top of that.

I hope you don't mind, I grabbed a pic from your TTORA thread. Your truck is sick!

It works so well there. Let me know if you need a base like mine made up

whoa that's awesome!

I'm going to see if it'll fit with just the bottom cushions folded up and it sitting on top of the storage bins there. Mine won't be permanent there, so I doubt I'll use a base like that. I get it Friday so I'll see what I can do about securing it. Maybe just do something like what this guy did:

LOL yeah but your solution will only work if it's just me and my wife on trips. Otherwise, other people ride with us all the time so we'll need the backseat and the fridge will move to the bed. Not to mention when we start popping babies out, we'll need that space

Got the fridge today. This thing is taller than I expected! But with the seat bottoms up, it fits pretty snug
