    I want to start organizing some gear in my bed as I save up for my new leaf springs and I was wondering how y'all keep everything organized.

    I don't plan on a whole lot just a hi-lift, recovery straps, jack stands, maybe some Jerry cans, some basic hand tools, other misc. stuff...pretty much recovery gear and what not.

    I looked at getting a tool box but I just don't think I want to go that route for some reason. I was thinking getting some army surplus boxes or something and hard mounting them in the bed.

    So let's see your set ups, bring pics :).



    P.s. Didn't quite know where to put this one so I just put it in 1st gen but I'd like to see set ups of anything ya got :thumbsup:

    a full size 16" TRD off road wheel as a spare, that's it. Don't have a tool box cause than I won't be able to fit my bike in the bed.

    Same :/. I've seen boxrockets and I think it's pretty awesome, but I still wanna get some more ideas ya know , just to see what's out there and what works. Boxrockets is a great example of what I'd like to see here though, all customized and what not

    ...too much shit to list.
    I went with a couple of Pelican Cases. Tool box was too big for my liking. The pelican cases work out perfect for me. Keeps the essentials I need and organized without consuming too much bedspace...and lockable.

    Where did you find those? They're pretty much what I'm looking for. Are they hard mounted in the bed? Bed space is pretty limited for me but I dot use it much, whenever I need dirt or mulch I just use a trailer.

    Amazon. They are the 1440 cases.
    Yeah they are drilled through the bottom and through the bed and bolted to the bed. Also added a smear of silicone to keep watertight.

    Filled with snow/ice they keep beer quite cold too. Quite nice after a long day of snowboarding. :D

    I dont have it now, but my plans are:
    -Low profile UWS toolbox, black. Thats to put all the tools and everything else i could need. The toolbox looks really good to IMO
    -Bed bar to mount lights and the hi-lift to. maybe even a shovel.
    -Then build a rear bumper with a spare tire mount so the tire isnt in the bed so i still have some room to sleep.
    -then get a topper so i can sleep at night in the bed

    Havent figured out how to have a toolbox and shell/soft top at the same time. :confused:

    I was thinking about getting a soft top and putting it up for the night, and then taking it down in the morning so while im on the trail i have easy access to the toolbox. But im not sure how much of a hassle this will be.

    I dunno about "bullet proof," but damn close. Mine sit in the weather all day every day. Seal is as tight as it was the day I bought it. Nothing ever gets wet.

    Is this your review Jerry :D
