    Default Aforementioned build stalled...

    After talking my design over with a couple people, and looking at my lack of a shop to build my intended storage unit, I decided to postpone my build of storage 'trunk' for the jeep. Until such a time where I have adequate resources and tools to accomplish my goal, this will have to do. It is secured to the tub by two bolts through the tub and into a cross member that were previously drilled for a tire carrier I had. Then I secured the back of the box to the back seat bracket bolts. I'll clean it up some more after Diego and I re-Herculine our jeeps again. Total cost to have a secure storage unit:
    -$20 for box
    -$6 for hardware (including eye bolts)
    -$2 for shop time

    I like the 4 legged security system. I love DIY stuff. It's the military way.

    Someone referred me to Pelican boxes, while applying the same method of storage. They're completely waterproof, so that may replace what I have. Still half the price of the tuffy one, can pick your size and style, and securable and waterproof. It'll make the list after tires, snorkel, synthetic rope.

    No. I don't think it's as tough.
