Short people problems

My top storage box is useless.I canít get in it with my new truck itís 4x4 but not lifted. I use the back seat of my truck and just put extra stuff like first aid kit extra leads light ect in the box. Anyone else run into this..and yes I know I could stand on the bumper or tire but Iím to old to get hurt before I go hunting

Iím not short

But i find storing stuff in the back seat to be more convenient anyway. I have no storage on the box and better visibility out of the rear window.

Rather have a box with no storage that I can see over and a tool box behind the cab.

Top storage, side storage, tool box, back seat and see out the back window... I can leave home for a month and carry everything.

post a picture

Very nice! Can you load and unload it by yourself too? 🤣
Really cool setup.

I am 72 yrs old. I have to have 2 sawhorses. It isn't that heavy but I am not as strong as I used to be and my back is bad.

I hear that

A friend of mine seriously messed up his back trying to load his box by himself. Pretty much ended his coon hunting. Take care of your back.

It is great for road trips and pulling my camper. I still have my Jeep for hunting around the house.

Forget the dog box. I like that old truck. Cant find em up here unless they are rusted in two.

1965 Chevy, it has a 4.8 LS engine with a turbo and a 4l60e auto trans. It dyno'd at 569 hp at the rear wheels on +10 lbs of boost. It sure is fun to drive. I am like a kid with a toy when I take it out. It has a Holley Terminator Max computer. I can turn the tune and boost up to race or down to just cruise depending on my mood (and whether my wife goes with me or not).

All the LS swaps I see amaze me. Love em.

Hunting buddy of mine has a 6.0 in an old regal that runs a 6.90 1/8 mile.

They sure do put a lot of pep in an old classic. They also love a little boost. I sure do wish that they were around during my first childhood.

I didn't think about that. It is an excellent idea. All you would need to do is take the ball off of a hitch and weld or bolt a flat piece of metal to the top. You could get a drop down or level hitch to get it the right height.

I got a new box last year. No storage for me. I want to see what's behind me in my rearview mirror, not just see my box. I too like the toolbox for storage.
