Figure I will start to document some of my tinkering. Took an old ThermaRest sleeping pad that was slightly ripped. Cut the good end off the thermarest as a backing board for the tool section. Predrilled guide holes, hanging anchor points, then screws washers (look close they match) and like magic a Free Mod! Just gathered up some of the tools I regularly use, and got a little creative. Ax, compact shovel, bolt cutters, machete, orange stuff bag, bungees are just stored there they don't actually hold any of the tools, just keep the rattling down. The tool anchor hanging points are worm gear hose clamps of various sizes, and the handles slide out to remove tools. Put a red reflector in there for more visibility if I am fiddling around back there on a dark road, plus it looks cool to me, and my genius rear tailgate light, flip switch like a household light switch, battery operated and double taped (lower right corner). Very convenient to have a flip switch led light back there.
