Tool / Recovery Gear Storage

  • Picked up a set of Ridgid Mobile Tool Storage System for $100. Robust built well and great for transporting gear whether tools, overlanding/camping or whatever. Other systems are available from Milwaukee/Dewalt but at much higher prices 2-3X. HD has the rolling cart $50, mid box $30, small box $20. Interest perked up at these prices and stock is very limited. I will use the mid and small box to store recovery gear and supplies. Not sure what to do with the rolling cart but could be handy. Open to suggestions. Ridgid also has a cooler but waiting for a price drop.

    Good point! I was “testing” the mid-size box in the Jeep to store recovery gear. My back seat has been out for a few years. I’m returning the large roller box and picked up the smaller 28” roller which can hold all my gear with room to spare. Posted the Ridgid deal for anyone interested.

  • I've always liked using multiple canvas tool bags. One for each of the things you need and they take minimal space. Grab them at HF for a few bucks each. Easy to stuff in tight places.

    Nobody belongs anywhere, nobody exists on purpose, everybody's going to die. Have a beer.

  • Years ago a member, Blue Jay, had a tuffy security box in the back of his TJ. I can attest how well built Tuffy's are because he had locked something in it (the key?) and had to break it open. I seem to remember using a pry bar. Can't remember whether or not we got into it.
