    I wanted a way to conceal some personal protection / survival / hunting items in my vehicle and decided to build this in my Escape. Let me know what you guys think

    Thats pretty cool... And it utilizes that space behind the seats which usually can be hard to use...

    i'm also a big fan of 'false floor' builds... It really makes it possible to carry a lot of stuff in the car without sacrificing everyday useability...

    i just watched the above video and the build video on your channel. very cool stuff.

    i plan on doing something similar in my truck. i want to build something like you did, but under the back seat. there are a few companies that sell things like i want, but i don't want to spend quite that much on it. and i know i can build exactly what i want.

    so thanks for the inspiration.

    I'd really like something like that, but I haven't looked into it all that heavily.

    A false floor means you have to empty the stuff on top of it to get to it. Which I don't really like. Plus, truck vaults and similar products are expensive. And in my Forrester, the only place to do it displaces the spare.

    I really like the ingenuity. But, I think I still prefer my pelican case chained into place solution better, at least for me.
