Anybody have these bolted onto the trailer? I dont see many if any and I was wondering if this was a good or bad idea. I was thinking of keeping oil, a new impellor kit in there, waxes cleaners , extra tiedowns, tools, ect.

I was thinking of a small diamond plated box.

I've been thinking of adding one also, and big enough for a floor jack. Any good sources for these boxes?

I was thinking of a nice triangular one right behind the winch. It would fit as thats an "A" area. I've seen them online for about 220 bucks all polished. I was also thinking about throwing in a spare hub too, greese gun. You never know. I was sitting at work saying, man.. If I go on my trip a couple hundred miles away and something stupid breaks. There goes my whole weekend unless theres a dealer nearby. I'm not taking that chance. I want to be prepared with fixable items.

With the box, I was going to drill into the trailer, tap it for 4 3/8 bolts and tighten from in the inside. Nobody can steel it then. + The locks are built in unlike locks that can be cut.

Mount them as high and forward as possible. They are VERY convenient, but when you have to use a crappy ramp, and back in farther to launch/retrieve, it does suck to have to pull, dry, and spray WD-40 on everything.

I keep in mine:
brake fluid
silicone lube
WD-40
grease gun
brake pads
bearings and races
10 ton bottle jack
12"x12"x 1/4" steel plate (to put under jack or tongue stand when on soft ground)
wheel chocks
and a few other odds and ends

I just adjusted my trailer and found I have alot of extra room up in front of the winch. One of these boxes would be perfect for storage and even a good step for getting on the bow of my boat.......



I can see how they would be a pain if you mounted them below the waterline when you put in. However I have enough room between the tongue and the winch that I should not have a problem. I could just mount it on top of the traielr frame, seal it up and call it a day.
