Hey just wondering what everyone is running for rear storage looking to put something on the rear rack of the 17 Grizzly just not sure what way to go
Yup, my so called "latches" were nothing more than a little bungee looped up over a molded in "hook" They sucked. I did'nt realize that's what they were like when I ordered it. I should have sent it back. I now have stainless steel adjustable draw latches on it. Work great, won't rust, and lockable.Beware of poor latch designs. My upgrade:
I have also sealed the latch lids with QUALITY adhesive weather stripping . . . . otherwise dust and water pours into your trunk.
@MORSNO, those are great. Yeah, Cabela's has some great boxes. Plano makes an awesome Sportsman's Trunk in a couple sizes. The big one is about $70 I think. I have one, it's really rugged. I would have used that on the rear of the Grizz but I wanted a seat. For smaller boxes the Apache line of gear cases from Harbor Freight are a lot like the Pelican except for only about $25. They are pretty decent. A lot of guys around here have made some mighty nice boxes out of plywood. The guys that have some skill and give a damn do a real craftsman job of it with good hinges and latches. They keep them painted real well so the water does'nt bother them. Then the other guys just rope a stinky old lobster bait bucket on, fill it with beer and let 'er rip, LOL!!I saved a bunch of money and use gear boxes from Cabela's $20-$30. They are found in the camping/automotive areas of the stores, not ATV specific.
