Four Wheeler Storage - On a Budget
Man oh Man, have you seen how much some of these four wheeler accessories cost these days??
Outrageous if you ask me….
I needed more storage space on my Honda Rancher and I wanted to be able to keep some of the items out of the weather.
I purchased this box at one of the major home improvement stores and also picked up a few appropriate sized U-bolt style clamps.
I positioned the box on my rear rack and determined where the holes needed to be drilled – and marked the locations.
I drilled the holes and then made a set of inner braces – just to help support (and share) the weight and loads that are exerted when someone sits, leans or pushes on the box.
I placed the box on the rear rack, bolted up the U-bolts and BINGO, I have some great storage.
I have to say that this was a resounding success!
I added some sections of reflective material to the rear of the box and this greatly increases my visibility when lights shine on the rear of the four wheeler – such as a car or other four wheeler (or from my flashlight when I am trying to find the darn thing after an evening hunt!)
I store all of the items that I need in there and they stay dry and out of the weather.
The box is even strong enough for an adult to sit on it… we do that often when we are scouting or just driving from place to place – when I have a passenger.
I think the box cost about $25.00 and the hardware was another couple of dollars… pretty cheap for what I got out of it!
If you need storage on your four wheeler, side by side or UTV, look into this and see if it will work for you.
