    What are y’all running for small tool storage? Basically just need enough room for a small jack and basic tools and tow strap just in case. Want something smaller than a traditional toolbox that would go across the rails. Sometimes have up to four mountain bikes in the back so needs to leave room for them to fit.

    Can you put all that stuff behind the rear seats or under them?

    I use a harbor freight tool bag and a few tool rolls. I have one for wrenches, and another for various tools. Set of sockets in the tool bag, and other various thinks like hitch pins and zip ties. I guess it depends on how much stuff you are carrying. I rent out my old house, so i have a lot of land lord duties so its easier to just leave all this crap in the truck. I used a bucket buddy for a while, but didn't like it for my application.

    Tow straps, tie downs, breaker bar, and plug kit go under the back seat. Bottle jack and tool bag behind the seats. Also have a come-along, a few split logs (wheel chocks), and jack stands rattling around in the bed.

    Those Planos are nice. I have the 108qt version for my recovery gear and camp chairs. I recently tossed in another tie down point in the bed so that the fridge can sit over that rear bed bolt, tucked against the Plano case.

    I use a 24 Gal Rubbermaid Action Packer tote. Strapped in against the cab in the bed. 4 larger J hooks for larger tools to hold a shovel, hoe, crowbar, and machete. Using stretch bands to hold those to the J hooks. Throw in a full bedrug and a tailgate bedrug and you pretty much have my layout. Tri-fold, factory (or dealer) installed toneau cover to keep it "secured".
