    Hi Guys,

    I am looking to hear/see of any creative ways to store water bottles in a pickup truck.
    On a daily basis I have six, 3 liter, water bottles rolling around the cab. It would be nice to hear how some other people deal with carrying water jugs for multiple people in one truck.

    Thank you,

    wish my situation was so easy.I don't use a trailer, and so I use all the space in the bed for tool storage. I kinda like to have a place for everything to optimize space and make things easier, just haven't quite found a solution on the water bottles just yet. Thanks for the input:)

    But if they're riding in the same truck, you're still going to have the problem of the bottles not having a home.

    This may sound stupid, but stand them up and put the seatbelt on them. Should do the trick. I have an extended cab, and I keep my 1 gallon water cooler in the middle seat in the back for easy access. It's heavy enough in the morning where it won't fall over, but in the afternoon, sometimes I'll throw the seatbelt about it.
