Default Custom Removable Storage Ideas?

Has anyone built storage boxes that lock into the seat brackets? I don't want anything permanent installed since I have a passenger version and still want to have that flexibility in using all the seats and not having in the way (ceiling or floor). It would be great if I could remove a bench and lock in a storage box for camping trips. I'm getting tired of containers/boxes sliding around. It could double as a dining/coffee table as well if I removed the 1st or 2nd row bench too.

Not exactly a storage unit but if you look at post 38 in my build thread you can see my fridge slide that "locks" into the seat bracket for an idea.
The link is in my signature below. It is available by the way if anyone wants to pick it up.

If you are looking for some seat legs there is a thread here about cutting a 3 person bench down to 2. Post in that thread asking for the cut off part.

Yes itís level. I actually created them to be modular. They generally spend their time in the 2nd and 3rd row position against the driver wall leaving the floor open.

Note that when people section a 3 seat to make a 2 seat (I did this also) the middle leg is the one removed but that leg doesnít have a locking mechanism. So if you wanted to use one you would need to figure out something to lock it in place. I just found a seat with bad upholstery and stripped it.

Iím still working out the design trying them out in different configurations and different deck dimensions for different purposes before I finalize.
