This mod helped me organize my truck camping gear. I needed a way of storing all the things that come off the truck when we’re not camping like the front cargo carrier, steps, Torklift Fastguns, generator and more.

Old Flat Cargo Carrier For Garage Items

I had an old flat cargo carrier that I had modified with a T-bar to hold bicycles. I cut off the excess 2-inch receiver bar and then drilled holes in each corner to attach heavy-duty 4-inch casters.

I could then stand my new cargo carrier upright and secure it to the T-bar. My generator, steps and other items are on the other side.

Then I cut a board from 3/8-inch thick sheet of plywood that fit the inside perimeter of the cargo carrier. Hooks were made to hang it from the carrier.

Garage Rack For Torklift Extenders

I used different lengths of ¼-inch bolts to create hangers for my Torklift Fastguns and Torklift extender arms.

Now I can roll the carrier out to the driveway and put on or take off the items without walking back and forth to the garage. It is also a lot more organized. Plus, when everything is on the truck and off the carrier, I can store my tailgate on the carrier.

It works great. It took me six hours to complete this modification and cost me $30 plus an old cargo carrier.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy.
