As if I didn't have enough things hanging off the front of the van.
Still trying to justify why I did this. Storage is always good, but there are a few things that belong outside like the little portable propane bottles and dirty laundry. Another reason is because I can. What I mean is with the exit angle so poor at the rear and the entry angle good at the front there is some intensive to equalize them.
This is a box for the side of a pick up. It was only a couple of hundred bucks. The attachment comes up to almost half that. It took a couple of Swagman receivers and vice holders from Harbor Freight. To get the bike rack forward I bought an extension. The box is 70 by 12 by 12. It does not obstruct the radiator but it probably does screw up the air flow into it.
It is on there but there is much more to do. Inside I need to make some dividers for what ever ends up there. Outside I need little poles on the corners so I know where the corners are from the front seat.
