    Is that a Tanzanian tiger pack? Very nice!

    Thanks for posting a link to the shovel and axe clamps. Awesome idea

    This is brilliant! This would honestly serve as a great option for a camping go bag when I just want to take all the basics with me. I hate to ask but would you mind compiling a more detailed list of gear you stow in that as well as maybe some more pictures of said gear? I may even make a recovery to go kit out of this. Thanks in advance, And awesome idea!

    Here's my modified action packer. It was first used in my Runner, then the Taco and now in the Tundy. Got bunch of stuff in there, and modified it slightly to safely carry my fishing rods to the marina. It's very sturdy, highly recommended!!!

    I use two locked 40mm ammo cans for ratchet straps, tow strap, etc. Then for longer trips I use 2 black cheap action packer style bins that easily fit in the bed.

    The company that makes them is called "SO Tech" and here is the link to the kit. Its quite pricey($845). I have a few of them as I was provided them in my old medical tac set. Another option is a hang up trauma roll(http://sotechtactical.com/collections/s-o-tech-classics/products/rammp). I use these as well and theyre quite handy for organizing items. Hope this helps mate.

    Saw one at HD yesterday, holy crap are these huge! They will hold a lot of stuff though, and they lock securely. The wheels are nice too.

    I have a tonneau cover, yes, but I doesn't really hold the box in place in any way. My bed cover does a good job of keeping it stationary, but offroad it'd still move. My plan is to either strap it down, or maybe use some screw-in hooks to screw into the box and then to then attach bungie cords to it that way.

    Get a long ratchet strap and choke it around the thing, then attach to the corners

    Do you think you could fit 3 of these DeeZee storage containers back to back in the truck bed or would only two fit? Any guesses?

    I know it said Bed Storage, but I was able to do some fun back seat storage with 40mm ammo cans (2nd Gen, not sure how the 3rd Gen works out).


    A few details can be found here.

    As for my bed storage, it is still a work in progress. I am going to have a bed platform that will have a drawer that can fit 50 cal ammo cans.
