    Get a soft cooler. They are a lot easier to stow. American Outdoors makes a good one just make sure not to throw empty cans or bottles in it.

    For some reason they end up crushed and the sharp edges cause leaks.

    Just get the small soft side with the actual plastic liners (Walmart)and stick them between the seats or under the Pass side foot well.

    Before I reoplaced my logs with Lightnings, I used to fit a steel-sided Coleman ice chest between the exhaust manifold and the closeout panels in my engine bay, perfect fit, just leaned on the log.

    My headers are a couple inches wider, not a prayer now. Need a smaller chest, but metal-covered ones near impossible to find.

    My steel one is stainless, and guaranteed for 100 years (untill 2103).

    Bulkhead forward with raised edge, use a bungee with hooks, and go around ice chest. Boxes under buckets are water tight. Crush empties and stow there.

    I tried to include pictures, but got "upload errors" constantly. WTF?
