    Winch, front hitch, step bars, bed extender, bed step, gull-wing toolbox, tailgate lock, security system, cb radio, etc.
    Very nice idea. Especially like that the dividers are transparent, making it easier to see what's inside each compartment. Will probably make my own soon and may even extend the idea to my bed box as well. Lots of room for creativity in that tool box.

    Good for you, actually. That is a good practice.

    BTW, divider looks good, might wanna buff those edges up a bit.

    I've seen a cloth buffing pad that attaches to a drill will work too.

    Looks good! You hardly have anything in there to organize! :p .

    Its funny, I have been digging through that thing for over 2 years to find stuff, and never thought about something like this. Something so simple.

    Good idea! You should run a bead of clear silicone in the corners where the acrylic pieces connect to secure them. And like someone else said, melt or maybe sand the edges smooth as a finishing touch.

    Thanks, ya I thought about the silicone, but once its in and all together, it really doesn't move around to much, plus it might be a pain to get in and out if you wanted, without tearing the silicone apart anyway.

    But ya, I will probably be making another one and hope to do some cleaner cuts and then I'll smooth it out too.
