Default BOV/GHB storage ideas for a new F150

Advertise Here

I bought a new F150 supercrew 4WD. Wife is getting the Explorer which has a lot of stowage compartments and secure cargo space. I need the availabile seating in the truck. There is space under the rear seats, a little space behind the rear seats. Secure stowage options? I'm thinking a locking in bed tool box. I will never have another truck with a cap again, might as well paint the rear window black. I'd love a hard tonneau cover but $$$$. I'm leaning towards a soft folding tonneau for out of sight out of mind storage. If I get a storage box, it will be covered by the tonneau cover. Options, suggestions?
Traded in a Transit Connect on the truck.
Got it for better travel trailer towing. Great news on that. The receiver is only 3/4" higher than the Explorer's I expect to not change my weight distributing hitch settings much, if at all.

I had a hard roll up cover on my older Silverado.
It was built like a roll up storage unit door.
Lockable and far more secure than a soft cover that’s easily cut through.

I currently have a large Contico box I bought from Lowe’s in my truck now.
The sticker claimed it’s what troops use when deploying?
Don’t know about that but it’s sturdy and has provisions for locks.
I made up cables and have it secured to the bed using the lower tie down loops in the from corners of the bed.
It sits on top of one of those rubber drawer liner type mats so it doesn’t slide.
It’s lower than the bed sides so it should fit under a cover.

One of my customers bought a new f150 and got this under seat bin. Really nice! I'll be getting one for my f150 soon.

Here's some options

I got the hard folding cover for my Ram, I didn't think I'd like it at first but I love it now. If you have a locking tailgate, you're GTG

You can also fold it up to haul a load if you so desire

Our standard is to get either a deep center box with a low profile top of my prefernce is to get a 5th wheel tool box which will fit under a bedcover if ya wanted i leave mine in when i put my camper shell on. Then build a box and carpet it under the seats kinda like a speaker box. Im curently in a silverado and was able to trim the rabs on the back of the seat to gain acces behind there too. Not sure how that works in the fords or if they fold down.

As for a GHB, everything I need fits in the storage compartments inside the cab. I also keep a small frameless pack in the floor of the back seat (can't be seen from outside with the factory tint). Anything needing more space is more than I would need to walk home.

This is what I have. I can put an AR in it. And a bunch of other crap.
