When I began this build I found a lockbox on craigslist that I thought was perfect for the build. It fit great between the wheel wells, was lockable and when I bolted it down to the bed, became a secure place to store all my stuff.
Problem was it was so secure, it was difficult to get things out of. When camping down in Baja I found that I never wanted to get into it as it was a wrestling match to say the least. Accessibility has to be high on the list for any storage you design and this one didn’t do that.
I came back kicking around some ideas and started looking at the various “truck vault” options I had seen out there that looked good. They all looked great apart from the price tag. $2000 for some drawers???
After some web surfing I decided that I could build what I wanted and have therefore struck out into some wood working. This is new for me, but I am digging working with wood, it is so much easier and quicker than metal.
Anyway it is gonna be a simple two draw system to begin with but something that I can easily build off as I see necessary.
