Default Vehicle Storage - Like a SeatVault?

So, I have been trying like mad to find a SeatVault product that is no longer in production.

Basically, this was a TruckVault product that went under the rear seat of an extended cab pickup that locked, was made of steel, and was completely out of sight with the back jump seat down.

I contacted Truckvault, the don't make them anymore.

They recommend this cheesy assed product call a Du Ha. Yeah, I don't think so. Plastic sliding tub with little to no support and the only "lock" they offer is to replace one of the hinges on the seat with a keylock. Like you couldn't just razor knife through the side and take what you wanted.

So, does anyone know of a solid, dependable, locking unit that can be put under the rear seat of an extended cab truck that can hold a long gun or two and have room for some tools.

Before anyone starts hotlinking:

  • No, I don't want a diamond plate toolbox to go behind the cab of the truck. That is where the dogs go.
  • No, I don't want one of those dumb ass bed rail units that bolt in and have your stuff bouncing all over hell.
I was something dependable that can be out of sight, out of mind behind the rear seat for tools and other items up to and including my long gun if I am going shooting after work.

Thanks!

JD

Thanks Gregs, I have been there as well. No luck. Close. But not quite.

I talked with Shelli over at Truckvault and she sent me these pictures of what they used to produce. This is about perfect, I just need to find someone local who can produce something similiar.

I saw something very similar to that this weekend at a local tactical shoot. I remember thinking as I walked by, "I want one." Only thing is, it was in the back of a tahoe, and much larger. I'll ask around on the local forum and see if anyone know's the guy, and I'll let you know if I find anything out. No promises but i'll do the leg work.

You might can find another type here, depending on your vehicle.

If it was in the back of a tahoe, I am guessing it's from this local company.

www.truckvault.com

I had one a few years ago in another rig and it was perfect. That is why I want the same production quality, but I don't want to give up half of my bed space.

If it doesn't match, I would love to know who your guy got his from though.

Thanks brother...

Yep. Been all through there too. Even e-mailed the site. No response, but they don't seem to have anything that is capable of a long gun and still be inconspicuous.

"You name it. Either we've done something like it before, or we'd like to take a crack at it. Our top-flight engineers will use state-of-the-art design CAD programs and apply their cumulative 100 years of practical experience. Call us at: (800) TOOL-BOX (800-866-5269)"

You are my new hero Jwhirl!

Both of those options will definitely be open in multiple windows tonight for research.

Where did you find that first picture? I am having trouble with the 8-Lug website.
