Locking ammo box storage in my YJ

I got my 81MM ammo box mounted in my Jeep bed for storage. I attached a hinged hasp so I could use a pad lock. It is mounted to an angle on the bed that uses a seat belt bolt to keeps the tire from sliding. Thus the angle of the box. Box was painted OD and weather stripping put on base of box.

I like it.

I recently removed my back bench seat, and installed a single lowback bucket seat on the right side, and plan on building / buying some sort of storage box for the left side of the back, i just have not done it yet. Still trying to make up my mind how i want to do it. But I really like the idea of just getting a large ammo box and bolting it down.. thanks for the idea.

Very cool . . . I've seen a few guys go with the Ammo boxs, but haven't seen any that size where you could really hold most your tools, recovery gear, etc. Giving me ideas . . . If I were to get a couple more soft bags I could ditch my big clunky tool box and just go with something like this and throw my straps and whatnot in there too, and then the ice chest, tire pump, etc can just rest on top . . . come to think of it . . . I wonder if there would be enough room for two back there if you didn't have your tire there. Great post, I gotta do some thinking, measuring, etc!!!
