Try looking at the Bigfoot cargo bag. It's huge and can be locked to the side of your truck bed provided you have a cargo hold.

Well a measly 24hrs might be enough time to do all that, although I would probably want it to actually come out nice, so mabye not. Problem is, I have been busy building and hanging garage doors, making trips to home depot ,wal mart, the propane dealer, and on top of all that, making a living, so in the past 24 hrs I have been kinda preoccupied. Thanks though for the sugestion, even though I and another posted the same idea already.

OK heres what I came up with. Made it from a piece of plywood my dad had laying around in his garage. Paint,silicone and hardware cost me about 20$. Aint the prettiest box ,I know, but the stand fits in it perfect w/ plenty of xtra room for clothes , boots and other stuff, I dont want to get wet. Im gonna use it this saturday, to put my deeks, waders and shotgun in. I think Ill leave it in there all year too , should come in handy w/ groceries as well.

Looks good and looks like it'll work.

Now all you have to do is make a bracket under the rear of your pickup for your spare tire.

Oh, and by the way, since my last post and your reply to it,...

... from the 28th to the 30th is not a measly 24hrs.
