When I'm out riding on the deer lease I needed a place to put my used beer/soda/water cans and other trash that I create so it doesn't blow out of the bed so I came up with this. Easy to make and cost about $20 total.

I drilled holes in the bottom of the bucket so water could drain out. I also use it to hold small tools and other items that I may need when I have a project out in the woods.

This is sweet, I will be copying this for my ice fishing bait bucket, with an addition to a few verticle tubes attached to the 1/4 rod for a slush spoon and gaff holder!

Very good design, nice job.
Polaris used to make that as an accessory a few years ago.

Thats cool. Iv had a bucket in the back of all my trucks iv owned. Put a hook in the side of my tool box and drilled at the top of bucket. When I fill up with diesel I dump it in the trash can at pump.
It get used alot more than you would think. Iv got my kids in the habit of putting there trash in it.
Im not a tree hugger . But hate to see people throwing stuff out the car window on the roads.
Nice job and idea

I like this. My question is it able to hold the bucket inside - OR - outside the box like saddle bags?

I modified your original idea to fit my needs, and accommodate my tonneau cover. I'll use it for keeping buckets with wet ducks, and drain holes in the bottom, used for dog training. Can easily flip to inside for tight quarters and trailering. Or fill with ice and cold beverages and mozey around the camp sites, trails.

Yes, I travel often in the dog games I play, as a handler and also as a Judge. I stay and eat at a lot of places I don't know, so I look them up before I get there when possible. I am fair and honest in my reviews, and only give what they earn. I've seen both ends of the spectrum, and most things in between.

Trip advisor is a good ap to have. I rate it near the top of my favs.

You should build an extra one and let me buy it

These are really easy to make. If you have a bench vice to bend the metal, then use a 2x4 block and a few large drill bits to bend the rod into a loop. Then find someone to weld it for ya. FYI - rod is a 36" long 1/4"dia. Galvanized at Lowe's - about $3.80 per. The loop (circumference) for a bucket needs to be about 36 3/4", so I made the gap about 5/8" when it's welded to the plate. I paid $20 to have 2 of then welded. Buckets fit snug, won't bounce around when on the outside, loose but contained when on the inside of the bedrail.

Nice job JJaxon, yep about what it cost me to build. They really come in handy, although I have my own welder.
