I'm leaning towards a roof rack ( yes that's what us middle aged call them ) on the Westy. And up there I plan to strap all the paraphernalia I want to take but don't want to be dealing with on the day to day or be flying around the chipboard interior in the event of a prang.

The under-floor locker option is out there, but its a big commitment.

I saw dougs post on facebook yesterday...
i like the idea as it keeps the weight as low as possible too.
I do have a diesel tank to go under the left side already so it seems logical to add more stuff down there. (obviously understanding the risk involved with an off road vehicle).

I am considering it, but no deeper than the chassis rails and all steel. I do not see the point in using soft aluminium for the box.

I saw another one of these floor lockers a few weeks ago, next to the sill, much more convenient to get to.
My heater is under there so rules it out unless I have that switched to the other side (which might be a good thing).
Probably more use to me than long range fuel tanks

Hi I don’t think I’m on that Facebook group, any possibility of a link.
Think it could be my van. :)

Thanks bene
found it (yes it is my van) I don't rely get on with Facebook can never find things.
Will try to post more when I get it back.

Regards Gary

PS sorry to have hijacked the thread.
To bring it back,
I am hoping to be able to store the hi-lift Jack in parts with the ladder shaft part and possibly the handle stord in boxes in the rock sliders (another project) along with the ground Anker and pins. the foot and rachet part will be stored elsewhere.

Think I'll just go for simple pin-type fixings, either low on the bulkhead or below the rear bench area.

On my red van I mount it on the bulkhead inside the door as it easy to access and can be got out of the van in a couple of seconds, it's secure and also out of the weather (they can seize in the up position if not maintained and well oiled!) and it doesn't take up much room when vertical my 45l engel fits infront of it with no problems in the white van I didn't have a bulkhead so made up a bracket that bolts to the b post which fulfils the same function and is under test at the moment but seems to be holding out well. I tried a number of different locations and taking apart the jack etc but it just got in the way or was too much of a faw and just annoyed me when I needed it
F*** your Syncro Westie I've a horse outside !
