    So.... you think you've packed for a big trip before? This is a setup from one of our Expedition Box users in the Pilbara as he preps for 8 months back in the bush working.

    All the tucker is in the boxes.

    Gotta love the kegs!

    In some of the states I've seen you in, a coloured lid is easier to read than a label. PML

    Yeah, we are stoked as they are starting to get around a bit. Simon Christie on 4wdTV is using them, Whatsupdownunder just set up the back of a Patrol with some, Jamie Hazelden is using them on his Aussie Bushman vehicles for his TV series and with a bit of luck, a couple more to come soon.

    But, they started here and the forum got the first ones!

    G'day mate.
    So time I think I help you.
    Just bought a pathy and won't be doing draws this time so think I'll need 2 boxes.
    One for recover gear and the other camping gear.
    What's the stacked height of 2 please mate?
    And how much to get 2 of them to kadina, 5554?

    Before we rush in though.
    Any plans on a half height box??

    Hi Kallen, I'll have to get back to you with stacked height, but they are 325mm high each, so double that and take a few mm off.

    Lots of ideas on other sizes, just not the funds to invest yet. We are currently working on some custom tie-down straps at the moment and need to slowly work my way through that idea yet.

    Freight to SA is still a flat $20 mate. Doesn't matter if it is one or two boxes. I'm away at work but let me know the colours you'd like and I'll sort a forum price for you.

    Boxes are starting to get a bit of a following. Had them at the Brissy shows and if the stars align with rosters, will make the trip to Perth in November too!

    Hey guys, here's my latest half arsed attempt at a video.



    Thanks to everyone for the support for this idea.

    We are working on a tray to fit inside the box next, plus some snazzy custom tie-downs using a MilSpec quick release clip.
