This is going to be my second year mowing lawns, and dont want to put too much money into this right away...SO iv just been working out of the bed of my pickup, and wanted to know of any ideas on how to organize/store/w.e all my S$#* back there....iv been thinking about making a trimmer rack, gas can holder, toolbox holder, blah blah blah frame type of deal out of wood? any ideas or set up you have already made??
and i will be working with:
2- 21" Toro's
2- trimmers
1- hand held blower
1- backpack blower
2-3 small gas cans, 2 large gas cans, broom, rams for mowers
AND there will hopefully be a Truckbox back there sooon!!
all of this is going to be packed into my 07 Nissan Frontier EXT CAB! Im not sure if this will all fit...I might be crazy haha

...a bed extender will give you some more usable cargo area in case you come up 1.5' short in bed length.

You wont fit all that back there, especially with a Truck Box.

Get a 5x8 trailer from Tractor Supply or something.

It can be done but would be a tight squeeze.

Remember if need be you still have the front of your truck, for example some people have the setup of fishing rods and a cooler. Just an idea. Good luck
