Rear Storage Box Orginaziation
With all the free time I've had lately, I decided to try and get a few projects on the van done. One of them was to get my Aluminess rear storage box better organized. I added a carpet wrapped piece of plywood to the inside of the door so I can carry some basic tools I might need and for now, at least 1 shelf to separate some of the gear. I've always hated having to take everything out in order to get to the stuff on the bottom.
I have a couple of storage containers & a tool roll from OverlandGearGuy coming this week. Once I get them, I'll figure out where the second shelf will go & I should be fairly (for me anyway) organized.
I've also been a bit concerned about the weight/stress on the top attachment point when the swing arm is open for any length of time, so I modified an expandable heavy duty shower curtain that I can prop-up the box with to help take some of the weight off of it. I'm not sure how well it works, but it seems to do what I wanted & for $9.00, it was worth a try. It also stores quite nicely inside the box & helps prevent stuff from falling out when I open it.
