When jeepn, what do you carry our tools in?

One of the things that bothers me when offroad is the rattling noise of misc. tools. Im not sure a tool box is the answer.... any suggestions?

Re: When jeepn, what do you carry our tools in?

I keep all mine in milk crates, because they're easy to tie down and remove later. I'll toss a garbage bag over em to prevent mud in them and or losing them if I hit a big bump. They might rattle, but I usually don't pay much attention to that. my .02

I got one of BestTop's Rear Storage Boxes for Christmas. I am planning to put tools, straps, and everything else I can think of in there. It fits perfectly behind the back seat.

Re: When jeepn, what do you carry our tools in?

I was just packing these 2 <font color=green>"Army Ammo Cans"</font color=green> i use about 30 minutes ago, they are about 24"deep x 8" wide x 18" tall, (the lid has a rubber seal to keep everything air tight) i also use a plastic milk crate or two,
i was thinking about making some special boxes that permantly mount,(i've though of this alot and seen some nice custom boxes out there), but i like to take everything out to cleanup. as far as rattles and noises, i thought thats why they made radios[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I use a combo of the two, big tools go in the milk crate along with WD40 (a wet distributors best friend) and straps and small goodies go in ammo cans[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: When jeepn, what do you carry our tools in?

I found some large olive drab canvas tool bags at the surplus store. They are 12" long x 6" wide x
4'" high with a hard masonite insert sewn into the bottom to keep it flat. They have two heavy carry
straps, large pockets on the outside with snap close flaps and small pockets on the inside for little
stuff. The are identical the the one issued to me by the Air Force which they made me give back
when I wouldn't re-enlist.

BTW - I like the subject, What do I carry OUR tools in? Sounds like some journeymen I've
worked with.

I like to put wrenches in those roll up canvas "bags", simply insert each one in the given pockets and roll it up, then when you need'em they're all organized for you.

Metal ammo cans for small stuff; I have some bags sewn from old jeans that I tuck similar items into (like, all box end wrenches in one, all screwdrivers in another) and a milk crate bungeed to the roll bar for bigger stuff.

<font color=blue>A towel! Easy and common! I wrap each piece individually... the rattling drives my A type personality nuts, too!

Re: When jeepn, what do you carry our tools in?

Put headers and some thrush type mufflers on your rig; take out your carpet, dashboard, and rear seat; finally, put some big nasty knobby tires on it. The road noise and engine roar will be so loud and echoing in your tub when you travel on the hardball, you never know if those tools are rattling or not!

By the way, would you mind bringing **our** tools over next weekend? I am in the middle of a big project!
