    Well I did a quick search and didn't find anything really.. Kind of a odd question.

    I am wondering what you guys use to store all your truck fluids in, a container or a box or some sort.

    Things I am talking about are:

    1. Brake cleaner
    2. Power steering fluid
    3. Brake fluid
    4. Grease
    5. Penetrating oil
    6. Lubricating oil


    So on and so forth.. All I am really wondering is what would be a good box/storage/container to put these in? I could just go to walmart and buy a rubbermaid container, but am curious to see what you guys are using.

    Would depend on what you'd be doing with said container. I just throw them in a plastic tub in my tool box. What about a laundry detergent tub with a lid?

    I use Action Packers only. A little spendy but so much more durable than anything other than an otter box/pelican case/ammo can...

    Plus I buy them at REI so if anything goes wrong, I return it and they give me a brand new one, no questions asked.

    Little guy on the driver's side for fluids, recovery strap, booster cables, zip ties, etc

    I bought a few containers from Home Depot that are basically their in-house knockoff of the action packer. They're tough, work well, easy to secure in the bed.
