Under Seat Storage Under $11

So I thought I would share my under drivers seat storage since I have tried several different options, and finally found one I really like. I bought two 3 gallon containers from Home Depot for $5.27 each. I stacked them in the compartment under the drivers seat. As you can tell from the pics, the top one fits nice and snug in there so it won't move around, but you can't put a lid on it because it sits flush with the compartment. The bottom container holds all my tools, and I put all my chains and winch stuff in a bag and threw it in the top container. Hoping to help someone out there that has been looking for an option. What do you think?

I tried several types of containers, but still got dust in them. I broke down and bought the Yamaha under seat storage container and it works great.....no dust/mud/water. I waited and found a good sale on Ebay....I think I gave $40 new in box OEM.

Wow, glad you guys found such good deals on ebay. I have been looking for awhile and haven't been so lucky. I am not about to drop $80 to $110 on one though. I feel this is a good alternative (haven't tried it in the real world yet) but the dust is a valid point. I don't swamp mine in the mud holes so I am not concerned with water and mud getting in. If the dust becomes to big of a concern, I might try some foam that they use on heater cores on cars and line the top of the container with it.

I use a 50 cal. ammo box under the driver's seat. Water and dust proof. About $10 or less at a surplus store.

I bought a soft side ice cooler from Acacdmy that fills the storage compartment. I have been using it for 2 years and never had a problem with moisture of dust getting into it.
