Finding secure storage space is sometimes difficult to do on four-wheel adventure vehicles. There's also an uneasy feeling tucked deep in the back of our minds when we leave our vehicles alongside a trail, especially when it's stuffed with valuable gear. If the rig has a soft top or exposed bed, we always wonder if our tools and gear are going to be there when we get back.
Geneva Manufacturing builds secure storage boxes and storage compartments in numerous sizes for many different vehicle applications. These high-quality storage boxes come in either diamond-plate aluminum, black-powdercoated aluminum diamond plate, or steel. The steel surfaces are coated with iron phosphate, then powdercoated for rust resistance. The storage drawers come with either left- or right-opening doors, which makes mounting easy. The doors are secured with a unique cam-locking system to help secure tools and trail gear.
These storage drawers were designed to be placed before or after truck bed wheelwells, but can be mounted just about anywhere on any type of vehicle. There just needs to be enough room to open the doors and allow full extension of the drawers. Installation consists of drilling four holes in the mounting location and bolting the 16-gauge steel base down.
For quite a while now, we've been looking for some type of secure storage compartment to place in the back of our '85 project Toyota. The Toyota is also a standard cab, which has very little storage room up front. Behind the seat, we'd stuffed tools, gloves, lights, and a few spare parts, and it was messy and cramped. The storage drawers completely cleaned up the cab, and we no longer have to scrounge around the truck looking for things. Everything has its own drawer and place, and we feel more at ease now when the vehicle is left unattended.
