Rear Stowage

I'm thinking about additional stowage. If I boought additional lids (like what we have under our front seats) could one create additional stowage in our rear wheel wells with a little effort other than cutting the proper hole and attaching the proper latch? I'd like to at least put the bulky soft stuff in there like straps and such.

Thanks,

Clay

If you just cut a hole in the rear wheel well and put a latch over the hole, when you put your stuff in there it will fall out onto the ground..

To me it was implied that you would have to put a fabricated piece of metal between the inner and outer wells consisting of floor and side to contain the equipment, but your point is correct.

Correct. Maybe it's more work than most would be willing to put into it but I like the thought of having a compartment like that for soft light stuff. Troy's boxes are great but I fear once they're installed the loss of room would be an issue.

early 110s had that storage area,

Makes it a real PITA to fit the rear legs of a full cage.

We need someone to fab up some aluminum boxes with a flange that can be dropped into the fender well and rivited in. My 110 PU has tons of unutilized space in front of the axle.

I show some options in this thread

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=22303

The landie box ones have some options that don't require side access (ie cutting holes in the side of the truck)

Does make for excellent storage. Fits a fair amount of small/soft recovery stuff.

This looks like a good solution in the wheel well if your willing to cut the tub.

The Gap Analysis boxes are small. The side lockers use a 10ltr can for their pics. I have just ordered a set of large side boxes, from the shop that does Foley's lockers. These show up on Ebay Uk from time to time.The owner make a few other products as well,nice stuff IMHO. Here are a few pic's, and sorry for the small jerry orientation pic's, all I have.

Can I revive this? Any come up with a solution for the tub compartments for a 90? I am looking to add a dual battery set up and wanted to get some of the emergency stuff out of my driver's side seat box. There is no passengers side due to a tool bax and did not want to go with a tub drawer. So I am looking at trying to add storage to the unused tub space to house a quart of oil, jumper cables, fuses, tool roll ect.

I also thought someone posted a box for the front wing, but not sure where that one ran off to.
Any help would be appreciated.
