    I like it, did you just lay it down under the seat or is it fixed in any way?

    It is attach, with bolts anchored to the floor and then through the Ibeam of the jack with a nut and washer on top, if you look in the secound pic you can see the nut and washer just past the body of the jack. The scatter gun should be with in easy reach not under your rear seat. Like between the console and the seat /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I did the same thing with mine. Ran two bolts up through the floor. Seams to work really well.

    I I also removed the seat portion of my middle seat. Then, when I leaned the upright portion forward, I tie-strapped it down bolting eye-bolts to the uprights from the floor. I then also mounted a few other things (coleman refridgerator) on the back of the upright & tied everything down. The space (because of removed seat portion) between this and my front seat now housed my tool boz, first aid back-pack, tow straps, clevis', etc. By doing this, the only this behind the 3rd seat was my spare tire. This took all of the excess weight from behind the rear tire & moved it to the middle of the body.

    Part of the reason I could do this is my kids prefered riding in the 3rd seat and my dogs (2 labs) layed on the floor between my kids and the "stuff".

    I modified a truck tool box to fit in my burb in the back.

    I remember when you did that. I actually looked at buying one and found some used in the paper. Since I'm selling my Burb, I might do something like that when I build my next toy. Seems to be good to keep everything out of the way. Ialso seem to recall Watson had some type of tool box on his rig that I liked, just not sure where exactly he got it (if he didn't build it) & how $$ it was.

    It was a standard pickup over the wheel well tool box that I took a /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif to the bottom and made it shorter in height. The length is perfect. Now I don't think it will work for people that have a 3rd seat as the 3rd seats arm rest i believe got over the wheel well a bit and the tool box actually sticks out over the edge of the wheel well by little over an inch.


    Hows that for the long version of the HOW-TO ryan /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I detect a note of sarcasm there. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Either way you "old timers" are the bomb on info for these rigs /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    Wait a second I've had my burb for 8 years now, do I qualify as an oldtimer?

    I'm looking into getting some rollout drawers like on a craftsman toolbox, and mounting them at the rear of the sub, with a false floor that extends all the way to the second seat. parts will live under the false floor, along with stereo/amplifier equipment, and the 3rd seat may bolt on top of that if I feel the need for such an object. My truck was equipped with a late model tumble-forward 3rd row seat,which is somewhat convenient.

    Of course, this is all dependant on the damn thing ever running for more than a week at a time, and me not getting tired of it, and selling it.

    ROFL draggon. For all you scattergun guys, member I'm only 17 and if I get caught with it I'm in deep enough crap already without it being within arm's reach /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif I like the toolbox thing. Thats the sweet things about burbs, we have all kinds of cool places to hide things /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I think I fall into the ol'timer burb group but it isn't because I've had the truck long....
    Since I'm running 38X16 M/T Claws on my 94 and the factory spare was just taking up space...I mounted an 8 drawer craftsman toolbox there. So far it seems to work well...wrenches rattle a bit but it keeps everything in reach.
