    I ended up getting the same RTIC cooler that spentcoins had. Really liking it so far. For any min-maxers that want the best cooling solution from it, there was test done that showed the white to hold ice for half a day longer than the tan, so about 5 days in the Florida sun instead of 4.5 days. I don't really plan on needing to keep ice for 5 days, but it's still an option. Fits snug.

    I have an expedition-grade cooler (Pelican). But, the Pelican would fill the entire cargo area. I use a couple of stacked Rigid boxes for my tools/recovery gear/first aid kit/etc. I recently purchased a Polar Bear Eclipse soft cooler, which nests nicely next to my Rigid stack. It's rated for 24 cans plus ten pounds of ice and I find it easily keeps them cool for over 24 hours, which is more than good enough for day trips. It's a bit pricey at $179, but appears to be really well built. I've used several other Polar Bear soft coolers in the past and have had really good results with them. I utilize Rok-Straps to keep everything in place.

    Honestly, if we had it to do over, I'd likely opt for a separate shelter outside of the house/garage. The shelter works, but there have been instances where we had to make a decision when the tornado warning came along with sizable hail. This means making the decision to put the truck out in harm's way in order to gain access to the shelter. And, in every instance (thus far) no imminent threat of tornado actually materialized, yet the truck ends up exposed to damaging hail anyway.

    Also, in the back of my mind I worry about being in the shelter after a tornado has leveled the house and the possibility of a gas tank rupture from the wife's car leaking gas in and around the shelter. I would NOT want to be in there with debris piled on top of us when a gasoline fire broke out. I do keep a fire extinguisher in the shelter now, just in case. But, that isn't really a viable solution. For the record, the shelter includes an 8-ton hydraulic jack that is intended to lift the lid up enough to escape should debris make it impossible to slide the door back, but that only gives me mild consolation. I feel sure that the jack mounting bracket and/or welds (welded to only 10 gauge steel walls mind you) would give way long before anything as heavy as 8 tons was able to be lifted. I have actually cut a 4x4 pressure-treated post to place below the bracket to help transfer some of that weight to the floor. But, the floor would probably buckle too. Who knows.

    As with most things, there is no perfect solution, so you make compromises. With the benefit of hindsight, I'm not sure we'd make the same shelter decision.

    Ride the best, use the best.
    I use a 1650 Pelican box. Had it in my Rhino, then RZR, and now my Talon X.
    It fits perfect with lots of room for gear. 20190716_075044.jpg 20190716_074942.jpg

    I went with the following:

    Rubbermaid 35gal Action Packer for $40
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000I1BU6E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I found it doesn't seal well enough to keep the dust out, so I'll be creating a seal for it using some type of sticky backed foam/rubber seal. It keeps the water out.

    It's a really snug fit in the rear cargo area and sits just a little off center because of the flag/whip mount on the roll bar. You can see how snug it is the in the pics below.

    I removed 6 of the bed bolts and replaced them with spacers under the box and longer bolts with fender washers on top. The spacers were just stacked washers which allowed me to tighten the bolts without deforming the bottom of the box. Box.jpg
