Dual Cab Interior Storage Ideas/Organisation?

Postby TBJ on Tue, 04 Dec 2018 12:05 +0000

Having gone from an SV6 wagon to my 2012 SR5 Dual Cab, I'm finding I'm dumping more stuff and struggling to find anything when I want it, so I was wondering what are some solutions to my interior storage that you guys are using or can suggest? Photos would be awesome.
thanks

Canopy with gullwing side doors and equipment boxes in the tub.

These canopies come with central locking now

How do you fit the canopy in the interior of the cab.........

I normally fold my rears up and use some small stackable tubs.

The back becomes interior once you put a canopy on. Not that much different to a Holden Wagon really! If I'm reading the question right.

Thanks, I'm actually building a tray (or going to when I have some time off) so I'm literally just looking for some Storage ideas, like the tubs, I've got some seat organisers and a center console organiser, just looking for some other ideas, also whats a good iPhone holder to use in the Lux?
thanks

That place I put the link up to for the canopy have a whole showroom of storage solutions. Called Caddy Systems or something like that. I browsed through it all when Ibought my canopy. Some good ideas in it all, mainly for the back but some inside stuff.

So, you're looking for inside-the-cab organisation?

As for phone holders, I recommend RAM mounts. I have mine mounted to the A-Pillar using one of the hand grip screw threads.

There's also roof consoles (1, 2), or a net that runs across the hand grips (this is just an example, you can find something cheaper). The folding back seat mod with netting is a very good way to use some dead space as well. A visor organisor such as the Grid-It helps as well.

You could re-purpose these fire extinguisher brackets for something, I guess - though I have one and do use it for a fire extinguisher.

I'm in the same boat in looking for better interior organisation options...though I don't have seat organisors or centre console organisers. Can you chuck an example up of that console organiser?

Don't forget under the seats as well - plenty of dead space there...both front and back.

The only other option I would suggest. (apSlain you covered everything I would suggest otherwise)
Is the use of a clic-on Phone base rather then the ram mount but both options are great. Also “minecorp” make a UHF bracket off the A-Pillar for the 15+ lux I reckon it would have to be close for the old lux. (Look at the design and mimic it.)
I repurposed the mine Corp for a phone holder and the clic-on holds ARB’s linx Unit.
Roof consoles are handy as I loved them in my old cruiser work utes just don’t need em for the lux anymore.
I honestly wish I knew about the rear seat mod when I had my old lux. So much wasted space back there.
Because the new 15+ one is a solid rear section I went with a different solution and installed a 80l water bladder back there.
Also the two silly pockets down each side of the stereo are handy uhf holders for a no drill solution.

yeah looking for inside the cab ideas, this is the center console organiser:

Don’t have a great specific pic of the mount.
But that’s it set up with linx. I just drilled a hole inside the air vent and ran the power up from inside to keep it clean looking.

Keen to see your ideas too mate. Everyone looks to cram as much into their cabin as they can.
