Tailgate Storage?

I know they make Covercraft Tailgate storage pods but does anyone have any other ideas like this?

Check Springtail Solutions, they make a rack that attaches to the tailgate and utilizes Nylon bags with the Molle attaching system. I have one on my tailgate and I am extremely happy with it. You can configure the arrangement of bags on the tailgate any way that suits you. You can also utilize Quickfist clamps to hold shovels, tow straps, etc.

Look at this price difference. I have the sub so I may have to alter it. But it's the cheapest I found.

can always make a box like my sub and add a door.

I made it removeable with 4 bolts and have been considering making a table for a stove or something. One thing to watch for, atleast if you have a 2 door with the back seats in is the amount of space you have after its closed. Easy to smash things when closing.
The way I made this with the heavy brackets and self tapping screws has also strenghtened my tailgate welds and could be a reason I havent had any problems with my heavy spare tire.

SmittyBilt make a similar one, just cheaper:
G.E.A.R. Tailgate Cover - Smittybilt

I think 4wd is having a sale with them too, or they were, buy 2 front seat cover carriers, get the rear free.
