Tonneau Covers

I just got my extang, I'm still undecided about it, I love it, but at the same time I feel like I don't have any room in the bed (even though it folds up all the way).

Just wondering how you guys have your bed space organized? I just have my spare tire back there, and a few misc. things. I mainly use my bed for cas cans, coolers, and clothes/waders (for the atv).

I was thinking of putting my jumper cables/oil and all that misc. stuff in milk crates and use a tie strap and strap it to the front (i'll pretty much never use that stuff).

Anyone have any pictures?

i don't have a tonneau cover, but i did put my jumper cables in my rear passenger door.

maybe you could build dividers out of wood since the bed has slots for 2x4s (some do or maybe it's the plastic liners that have that) the milk crates is a good idea. maybe attach three or four together so they are more stable. i was thinking of getting a pouch made or making one to put my jumper cables into since they are dirty and i wanna keep my interior clean.

I have my "box" I made with 2X8's. One 2x8 in front and one behind the wheel well. Connected with cross braces. I used it for my sand bags in the winter, but I left them there cause they divide the box nicely, and when I put groceries back there, they don't slide to the front of the box. And I put my more valuable things at the front of the box, so if someone wanted to steal them, they would have to take off the cover all the way before they can get to them (not like jumper cables and tie straps are valuable, but people like to steal).

I tried the milk crate deal, but removed them, just in the way.

I've used a clothes basket in the bed to keep items organized. Just depends on if you need milk crate size or something bigger like a clothes basket.

i built a "box" out of wood and i keep it strapped in the front.

the box has my jack and everything else in it, even a small gas can.

the jack is one of the smaller floor jacks, not the little one that comes with the truck stock, i keep a 4-way in it also.
