Does anyone have plans (or pictures) for a home built version of a Truck Vault? I have seen what looks like wooden copies in the back of SUV's and pickup trucks and they were both good looking and very functional. My preference would be a two draw style. Thanks.....

This is my version of a homemade truck organizer... fit to a Ford Explorer.

1/2" plywood top and bottom, 1x6 outside pieces, 2x6 inner pieces. Menards trunk carpet, contact cement, short deck screws, a piece of piano hinge and support bracket... under $50 and a weekend project.

PM with questions,

Jay







In the above photo, in the left bay, I have a piece of hardboard carpeted on top - smooth side slides very easy on carpet and incorporates a cleat at the end - used for cases of shells instead of another gun case - easy to retrieve cases that have slid far forward...

6" nominal width lumber works well to provide just enough height for a gun case, 12 gauge shell cases, etc...

Here's mine:

Is this what you're looking for?

This was made out of one sheet of 3/4" plywood. I hinged the front part for easy access to the shells and I used 100# capacity full length drawer slides. Magnetic catches didn't offer enough strength to keep the drawer closed when I drive so, I added a simple hook to keep it all closed up as I drive.

I have completed the purchase of everything I will need. I am making one much like Jay's with some slightly different dimensions. I think I am going to come in around 60 bucks complete. I had to hit a auto trim shop for the material to cover it with.

Thanks to Jay for posting his pics and answering a PM from me.
