Front Rack Storage and Gas Mounts

Just wanted to show you all my front rack setup. Box is from Home Depot $30. I swear the guy who made this must have a grizzly because it fits perfectly. I used 4 stainless clamps to secure it to the rack. Weather proof too. I installed it so it opens forwards. That way I can access it without getting off the quad. My Friend made me the gas can mounts to hold the 2 gal cans. I bolted them to the rack. I still need to run a power wire into the box for my charger. Gearing up for my 1st trip out with it.Front Rack Storage and Gas Mounts-43ad9a63-f830-4656-8170-aa41cbf62757_1556329888488.jpeg

Nice looking setup! I have blue grizzly like that too, that blue color is the prettiest I’ve seen on an Atv!

I have been using the same box for about 3 years on the front of my quad. You are 100% correct on fitment, I have mine filled with tools, mini compressor, tire plug kit, tow rope, etc .

I forgot to add, that box is a stackable system and I bought the basket that snaps to the top of the box. Very handy when out doing work in the deer lease.

Nicely done, and my compliments to your fabricator. I might be interested in a pair of those gas can mounts, myself, perhaps in 1 gal or 1.5 gal size.

That is a really nice set up.....your buddy could make some money selling those gas can mounts.

I looked online at Home Depot for that box and couldn't find it, do you have the link or some additional information?

Kilroykarr, looks nice and clean.
One suggestion though, I would have a couple racket straps in the box for those gas cans if you learn, like I did, those bungee cords don't hold as you want.
I like to use two soft coolers, one inside the other, which can hold 1/2 case of adult brews with ice. I can set this in the center of the front rack and using a single bungee it will stay there all day, if the grizz stays upright. :)
The center of the rack is much more stable than the outer edges where your cans are mounted, and you may be surprised how much more things get pitched around.
You can see what I experience in this video, and notice the box on the 700 ahead of me. The center isn't pitched near as much.

some of this depends of your riding style and condition.....

Very nice fabrication for the gas can holder and agree with Ridgeway that bungee cords can only do so much with one's driving areas, case in point is I have lost several items on rough trails including a new 1 1/2 gal gas can somewhere on a mountain, prefer cam locking straps for some applications. I mostly dry bag items I carry and center the weight. Looking at those gas cans knowing where I travel to, it would require a little more English out of the saddle. Just depends on terrain, but does look like a good set up for you.

That's why I was thinking smaller gas cans, as well. I don't think, at this time, that I have need of that much gas as backup. The 5+ gal tank has a reserve, and even 1-2gals ought to be enough to get me back to a refueling station of some kind.

very nice set up.
this is the exact reason I'm not a fan of the 3rd headlight. it's useless to anyone that wants to actually use the front rack. Actually it's a nuisance when you need high beams and have something on the rack reflecting glare back at you.

I think I may need to find one or two of those boxes.

It's made by ridgid. They have multiple sizes of cases. I've got a couple rolling stacks in wheels. It's been holding up well to harsh work conditions

Thank you @vmaxman looks like that box is available locally. Think my front rack may need to be reorganized. 😉

That mount is nice. Looks like your friend has access to a CNC punch press. I can see that the mount was formed from one piece of steel.
