Show me what you've done with surplus ammo cans
I just picked up a couple ammo cans from my local Army Surplus Store and now I'm looking for ideas for what to do with them.
Turned one into a lock box. It's in my pickup in this but I recently cut a slice in the side and bolted it to the stock spare tire bracket in the back of my XJ.

I might have squished it in there to fit, but the seat would have been rubbing REAL hard against the console, probably enough to eventually rip the seat. And it may have eventually gotten in the way of the seatbelt retractor, it was rubbing against that too.
All in all, I like it. But i wasn't happy with now it wasn't as plug and play as they claimed.
Oh, and don't try and re-use the factory flip-up seat brackets. They will make the seat WAY to tall, haha!
