Here's one i made, a rod carrier. Didn't cost much to make, all parts are available from your local home improvement store. Great for transporting and storage for your valuable surf rod.

tackle storage for a Chevy Tahoe. Takes up the entire rear cargo area, but only about 6" high.

I work for a fence company. I found some scrap PVC in the yard and cut them to length to fit the milk crate. Then I notched them with a Dremel.

I believe Chief had a very nice box built for his truck. Search the forums for plug storage and you should find it.

I'm not sure what you mean by kindork. I used Alum. U-channel with U-bolts.

Homemade rod rack (pressure treated wood/PVC pipe) and bait prep table with pintle receiver mount on the back. Painted this year to match truck. Slips into 2" receiver hitch and holds 6 rods or 4 rods and bait table. Free stands on the beach so I can open the rear hatch. Holds rods upright while baiting. If it's windy there are screw in legs so it doesn't tip over when free standing. During the week it's the significant others vehicle and she doesn't like permanent mounted rod racks so it's easily removed. If you see me on IBSP, stop by and say
