    Curious what to do with this space...
    I am sure a subwoofer sits here in the 15 speaker system.
    I am wondering what you all use this space for. Rope, recovery straps, tools....
    Which leads to my next question. I need to find a tough case I can store all said items, plus more into in the rear hatch with the 85# GSD. I know pelican & other weatherproof cases can be used atop a vehicle I just need something that the dog won't crush!
    Thanks for any ideas, they are much appreciated. 20190418_200712.jpg

    Perfect place for all the detailing supplies. My wife won’t leave the house with either me or her completely detailing her rig.

    I completely agree. Except I do all the washing.
    However, I am looking for uses when not a daily transport.
    When we head out; what do you all normally pack there?

    Personal preference I suppose. For me, it should hold something that needs to be there every day. Not that you have to use it every day but, you want it there every day. For us, that’s detailing supplies because it’s used every single day. For other’s, it may be a tow strap so they can be pulled out of a tough spot when wheeling, or maybe it’s a bag of dog food, or a jug of water. My advice is to figure out what YOU always want with you that stays neatly in place. And that’s what that space will be for you.

    I have a tool roll, jumper cables, and my hitch wrapped in a towel in that space.
    Rest is on an Orange Boxx side window rack.

    My 2004 had a cover for those areas. It was kind of nice. But if you opened it up, it took a while to put everything back in and get the cover back on :)

    Tie rope, first aid, tools, gloves etc will be stored in a hard case (to be determined) in the rear cargo area; that our dog can stand on & protect the jumper cables, reserve water & aboved mentioned etc. to protect all them.
    I digress.
    Please continue with what you put in this area.
    Much appreciated!
