ATV carry all Box

What's everyone been up to? Hunting? Holidays? Any DIY projects.

I got tired of strapping my gloves, safety glasses, drink, tools, chainsaw, leaf blower and such to the front rack of ATV.

Last week I built a 'carry all box' for the front rack.
Scrap 1/2" plywood, scrap supports
Outdoor screws
Wood primer & Camo paint
(will paint second coat in spring)

Past Saturday morning I stopped at a winter yard/moving sale.
Here I purchased a new exercise mat, $1.
I cut a piece of mat to fit bottom of box. So things would not slide around too much.

Here's pics of finished box with exercise mat cushioned bottom...

I love the concept of a homemade box. It definately has possibilities.

Youthful enthusiasm is replaced by old age and treachery

I did pretty much the same thing for both front and rear. The rear one is connected with wing nuts so it comes off faster . Mount the weed sprayer on the back a few times a year. One thing I did was drill some 1/2" holes along the top edges for attaching bungee cords. Front box also has u shaped notches on the short ends for cradling a rifle or shotgun which I did later after pic was taken

Nice Jager
I used tarp straps to fasten down box. Box is very easy to take off and put on.
I put sprayer on the front, so the box will come off fast.

Jager, I already thought of putting holes near top for bungies. And a drink holder on outside, back corner of box. Already planning on other modifications.
The add-ons will be for warmer weather before I do another coat of paint.

I noticed a milk crate under my work bench. I liked the handles. So I copied dimensions onto my box. Not sure if I need handles, but now I got them. Also my tarp straps fit tight into those handles. So I'm happy I cut them in.
I did take the round file and made a groove , so S-hooks on trap straps don't move or slip out of place.

I may do a rear box to haul trapping equipment only. I can't see this ole guy swinging leg any higher to mount up. I may pull a hammy. So rear box isn't practical for everyday around here.
We have a side x side, but I like driving the old ATV.

Jag, last weeks warm spell I added two carriers to outside rear of box.
Purchased at Ollies, two medium size screen baskets.
Will serve as drink holder other for safety glasses & miscellaneous small items.

For a quick and easy carry box for my quad, I have a pair of old hive bodies from the bee yard. I fastened them together in the middle with some wood screws and added a plywood bottom. I attach i it to the front rack with the winch. I have bigger, more elaborate boxes that I mount when Iím canine trapping, but I often use this setup when gathering up traps, getting sets prepped before season, or shed hunting.

It's nice that you let that beaver sun himself on your quad like that.

You guys have some good ideas there. I need to do something. I purchased a plastic chest that I was going to bolt to the rack with some planks for a base to use as a lockable box; however, When I have to carry a deer out I need the rack as it is.

I made this a few years back.
Was sick of not being able to hold my trapping supplies.
