    I am using the box from Walmart without straps. I installed 4 bolts from under the bed through existing holes with fender washers on the bottom. On the top I used washers and nuts to hold the bolts in place for when I remove the box for cleaning or accessing the air filter, etc. I drilled holes in the bottom of the box to go over the 4 bolts and put nuts and washers on them in the box. I also used nuts and washers on the bolts for the box to sit on. I used bolts just long enough for the nuts and I put some 3/4" boards in bottom of box with cuts out for nuts and bolts. This way the bolts and nuts do not puncture cooler or anything else in box. Since the latches are pretty weak I use a SS snap hook to secure the lid.


    Materials for mounting - all Stainless. 4 bolts, 12 nuts, 16 washers and a snap hook. You could use wings nuts in box for quick removal.
    I used the same 30 can cooler from Walmart that is a perfect fit in the box. Looking at the cost of the Honda box and brackets, I can buy 20 - 30 of the boxes from Walmart. I haven't seen one of the Honda boxes yet, but I am happy with the box from Walmart.

    I had this idea for the first R we sold, using the Pro-connect mounts. Since the mount and clips are available separately. I'd think it work on any box that isnt too thick.

    I mounted thru the current open holes in the bed. 5 bolts and they are pretty easy to reach underneath as well.

    What are Pro-connect mounts? A google search comes up with tv mounts.

    I have that cooler. I suppose I need a Talon to go with it!

    I looked at the Contico storage box at my local Walmart and wasn't happy with the fit of the lid or the latches. I was running errands in a neighboring town and wanted to re-evaluate the Contico storage box and found this unit at Walmart.

    IMG_20190618_144726-Edit.jpg


    Here are the details of the box, $19.98 at Walmart.

    IMG_20190618_143901-Edit.jpg


    Of course nuts and bolts/machine screws could be used for fastening but I didn't want hardware sticking up into the box so I used Clevis pins with fender washers and hairpin cotters.


    IMG_20190618_144257-Edit.jpg

    Sterilite box from Walmart $19.98.
    3/8" x 2" clevis pins from Tractor Supply 2pk. $2.49
    3/16" x 2" clevis pins from Tractor Supply 2pk. $2.29
    3/8"-1/2" hairpin cotter from Tractor Supply 2pk. $0.99
    1/4" hairpin cotter from Tractor Supply 7pk. $0.99
    (only two of the above are used)

    I also used fender washers under the clevis pins. I had those on hand.

    No modifications to the Talon and the box quick releases for air cleaner access.

    I am just trying to buy some time until the price of the oem box drops or a better aftermarket alternative is available.

    I agree, the Sterilite box has better latches and the lid fits better than the Contico box, but the Contico has a lip on the lid that should do a better job keeping water and dust out. I also set up a Sterilite box. I installed straps on the lid to hold it from opening too far and hitting the rear window. The open lid on the Contico box did not hit the rear window.
    I looked the box TSC has and it is a lot sturdier than the two boxes at Walmart, but it has less room inside.

    Bought this at Tractor Supply for about $25. Couple yrs ago. Had it on my p1000. The eye bolts work OK to hold it down, but couple inches higher would be better. Roughly 32"L x 15"W x 14.5"H. IMG_20190621_125300.jpg IMG_20190621_123543.jpg IMG_20190621_125117.jpg

    This is the box I got. I just used lashing straps from Harbor Freight down to the eyelets so I can easily take it to access the air filter, etc. Holds my Ozark Trail 24 can cooler, tools and recovery gear great. And it has a weather seal. $54

    I got the same box as you, what I did instead of bolting it down is put 4 U-bolts thru it, and just a ratchet strap on each side to the mounts in the bed. Well, my fiance did the strapping as my arms are too big to reach in there. I figured that way if I had to get to the air cleaner or anything it would be easier to just undo straps. I put a 24ish can cooler in one side of it and a rubbermaid box in the other with tools, etc.

    I’m with @ohanacreek in that I’d look for something that seals like the ridged boxes or even something larger, but you’re gunna want it to seal!
