Hi, does anybody have any locking trunk alternative ideas to the expensive Tuffy?:smokin:
Apart from making your own, I can't think of anything else available.

I just installed a Tuffy in mine, and they are not cheap, but it was a whole lot easier and quicker than making my own.

Here is what I did in mine. This is a toolbox I bought at tractor supply.

Test fitting:


Painted gray to match interior and installed.


CO2 installed


I drilled two small hole in each end and attached a ratchet strap on either side, and I strap my ice chest to the top when I need it and its still low enough to see out the back window.

There are more pics here if you wanna see them.

You'll end up wanting a drawer and not a flip top...
Agreed. There is also a version that open sideways and creates a working table when the door is open.
