Default Inexpensive cargo box

Pulled the rear seat off my G16.
Went to Harbor Freight, they carry mostly cheap crap but sometimes you get something good. They had a cargo box that fits in a receiver hitch and can carry 500 pounds. All aluminum construction. $59.
I'm in the boat business and had an old square tube bimini top so I cut it up, bolted it all together and have a great looking, at least I think so cargo box. Have more to do tomorrow to attach the top.

It came with reflectors on the back. In the center is where the square tube for the receiver hitch would go. I have a stop light that goes into a receiver tube on yout car, I'm installing it in the square tube you see so I'll have a high mounted light as well, although since I don't drive on the street I won't hook up stop lights, just driving lights.

Looks great! I built mine from 1x1 tubing made a flatbed and welded corners on the rear of it. Put sheet aluminum on it, then screwed 2x8 cedar around the sides. Screwed it to angle and left a space to slide the gate down in between angle and wood. I put weatherstrip on the wood to keep gate quiet and in there. It also dumps, sometimes I carry dirt in it, and since it is solid bottom that is handy to wash it out. Only bad part is I had to silicone the tubing ends because the rust dripped on the body when it got left in the rain a few times. Of course I did that at work long ago, it was free except for the cedar. At the time it was about $9 for a stick of 1x1, the alum was left over stock car body sheet alum and I used steel rivets to hold it on.

It does look nice, is very likely I would have bought something instead of making one but could find nothing. I did find a HD tub about the right size but they wanted a fortune for a hunk of plastic and it was on the small side. One nice thing about a box is you can put a chair in it and sit above everyone, or stand and work on taller things like a house/etc.

Funny thing is that could be marketed as it sits. Nicely done.
