    My Plano in the back of the GQ was $150 odd has the big O ring seal in the lid but doesn't keep dust out which is disappointing given the blurb on them .
    The trip were starting next week to the Cape and Kimberly makes me wish I'd looked into yours sooner for the back seat area , seats are removed and have a false floor but making good use of the area would be easier with the expedition box and we've been trialling different methods to make the storage of gear a bit neater and easier to get to .
    Will look into it further for next years trip .

    Two of these sit nicely side by side across the Patrol when the seats are rolled forward. With the seats out you would have access to all of the footwells as a bonus.
    Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD, but sold the soul and now driving a 79 series dual cab. Yes, a Tojo on the Patrol Forum! Also having fun trying to build the ultimate Expedition Grade storage box.

    If you can hit a good price point with the quality of that product then I reckon you're on a big winner.

    Foot wells gone I basically have a flat floor , the idea was with tubs and crates it's all easy to remove rather than dedicated shelves then I get to use the available room at other times when not on the tracks .
