What do you guys use in the box of your truck to carry EDC gear? I carry ratchet straps, some basic hand tools and supplies, and my air compressor . In the winter my tow ropes, snatch blocks and on long trips I throw my winch back there. I have my NCCO under the rear seat. I used to have a swing case in my old truck that housed most of it, but now I have everything in canvas bags just sitting back there since a swing case wont work because of the handle with the multi pro gate
 
Hello I carrier straps,tow ropes. I add a air compressor If im going offloading just in case I need to lower psi on tires.
 
Hand tools of all kinds, tow straps/rope/soft shackles, tire repair kit and compressor, tie downs, paracord, wire, d rings, tape measure, spare lug nuts, OBD scanner, guns and ammo, various other useful items.
 
I carry a decent amount of stuff all the time. To much to list really lol. But I have various tools in a roll up bag under the back seat. I also have mollie panels mounted in the bed with tool boxes and various other things like tow strap, floor jack ect. I have on board air so I carry a impact, and a few other air accessories. If you have a bed cover the mollie panels are nice for getting stuff up off the floor and organized.

Curious about which mole panels you are using to mount stuff on. Also interested in the black tool box.

Yes im also interested in the tool box? What brand is is? Is it bolted to the fender well?
 
The panels in mine are from builtright industries. So are the Milwaukee pack out mounts. That black toolbox is actually just a random one off Amazon.

It is mounted to the mollie panel using some slide hinges. So the box tilts out for access, than can slide back out of the way. Works well and was pretty cheap to do.

Mount the toolbox opening the opposite way to make it easier to access when standing outside the truck?

You could I guess. The latch on the box might be harder to access. I can reach into the box from the outside. If I have to really dig around in it I just get in the bed or stand on my tire. Also with it mounted that way the bed of the truck holds lid so it doesn't flop all the way down. It woks well. Box was about 70. Hinges were like 10 bucks. I made the supports on the bottom that act as the pivot point. Here is a link for the hinges if anyone is interested in doing the same setup.
