Looks great "if" you have a big american truck, I run a range rover as my shooting truck and you would never have enough room for that between the front and back seats :Facepalm: still looks like a good bit of kit if you have a monster truck

Looks like a total and utter waste of money and space to me, doesn't really protect your firearms and offers no security.

That's absolutely true. Still if you have the truck and room and feel like being somewhat frivolous, it's a cool add on. In truth, it would be better to have a lockable tool box mounted in the truck's bed or a bed cover that's lockable. Personally I find the back seat room in a Ford F150 too small for any human other than a small child.

Nah, that's certainly a 150. Notice that the rear seats are folded where the seat pans are in an upward position otherwise the storage case would never fit in the cab's floor space. If the seats were down the seat pans extend well forward of the case and placed just so perfectly the an adults knees would be rubbing against the front seats back rest. I'm not a small man and I've had the displeasure of riding in the rear seat of a Ford 150. My brother has had one of years. I pity the adult who's sits in those rear seats. I find it torturous. The front seats are plush and very comfortable. Ford did come out with an extended cab for folks who intend to use the rear seat area for more than storage. The F 150 is a great truck and one of of the best selling vehicles in the US but it's back seats are terribly uncomfortable.

A proper truck has seats in the front and everything else is truck bed :razz:

Much like the useless 4x4 4 door pick up's we get over here, as much use as a chocolate fireguard.
What is the point of something that is so big these days it's a nightmare to park, but has a bed so short
a fishing rod holdall hangs over the back :bh:

I agree with you. I tried to buy a simple F 150 with vinyl seats and flooring and standard transmission. I wanted a split differential gearing in the back tires where in one tire started to slip the other would pick up the traction. I didn't even want a radio. Those trucks are called fleet vehicles and generally they are inexpensive comparably. I couldn't get that truck and they tied to sell me something that had all the bells and whistles. I bought an Acura by Honda luxury car instead. The Acura was cheaper than the truck with the bells and whistles.

Accura, seems like it may just lose out on carrying capacity compared to even a small truck :razz:
Somewhat more practical as everyday transport though :thup:

I have a Land Rover defender.

For gun storage I have a pull out steel draw mounted in the back, it raises the floor to the top of the wheel arches so invisible if you look through the window, will take most rifles and very strong and lockable

Not the cheapest but very well made and a perfect fit

Ideal for out on the farm when you may want to take an extra gun
