I thought about those, but I don't think my floor jack will fit.

It holds a lot of stuff and its still pretty easy to get to it by just dropping the tailgate and sliding the bins out.

As for what's in the bins, lets just say anything I might ever need. The list is pretty long.
This sounds like it's right up my alley. Easily removable if you need your entire bed space for anything.

Yup. They don't slide around, the contents are protected if your cover isn't 100% water tight, and at less than $20 you can't really go wrong. If you try it out and don't like it, you'll probably find some other use for the bins.

Snacks...I like this one. Far too often I've found myself stuck in traffic and wishing I kept something to snack on in my glovebox.

Does a late 80's Gen 1 G17 with Austrian proof marks and an unloaded magazine count as a tool? I only transport it to the range. Haha 😂

All I have to say is if I am in a bind, one of you guys better be nearby! To the guy with the Glock, here in NY the only people that can carry those are the cops and the criminals. In democrat land, tax payers are not allowed to protect themselves from the criminals.

An unloaded pistol is just an expensive brick.

If anyone is looking for a storage idea, I have been using one of these Dewalt Tough Storage Boxes for a few years and have been really happy with them.



The plastic is thick and doesn't flex with loaded up. The lid seals tight and is waterproof. I use mine for recover gear. Tow straps, shackles, snatch blocks, foldable shovel....ect. I like that is all one kit that I can take out to clean my bed or transfer it to a different vehicle. I think it was $49.99 on sale from Home Depot and I feel it's worth it.

Post an itemized list of the contents of my vehicle to the Internet? Really?

Ok, I'm in.

Absolutely nothing!

I remove the seats and carpet whenever I park the truck..
In questionable areas I also leave the windows down, doors unlocked and pull the door panels and headliner.
I'm currently working on a quick disconnect for the fuel tank.

All of this presents a minor schedule inconvenience around the house or in the garage. You really get some looks when you carry this stuff into a restaurant or hotel/resort though.

Ok, I'm out...
