Mitsubishi Projects: DIY Toolbox Short Cuts

Author/ Designer/ Photographer: Guy DeWitte, May 21, 2000. Editor: Phil Hansford

A Stout Storage Solution For the 2 Door Montero/Raider

The toolbox, with hatches open. When closed, it looks like part of the truck.

This toolbox was made for the 2 door with rear seat removed.    However,  the rear section can be made separate and fits perfectly, even with the rear seat in upright position. The rear section flares out a bit just enough to fit snug against the wheel wells.  This allows the box to remain in place without any movement forward in the event of a sudden stop or crash.

The Top View: Notice how the rear section is slightly flared (3") to keep it against the wheel wells.
