Ute Jack/Tool Bag Safety
Has anyone come up with a better solution to storing the jack/tool bag in Utes? I am concerned about this bag becoming a missile, heaven forbid, in the case of an accident or roll over!
I repacked mine half a dozen different ways to make it fit UNDER the front seat. A few days later, I had a Cabin Tidy fitted to my XR, and recently I found scratches on it (the Cabin Tidy) where this bag (which has tool extensions protruding) has been sliding a few centimeters back and forward under the seat.
I have talked to my Ford dealer, Ford's interactive internet Chat Line, and finally I faxed a letter to Ford Australia a couple of days ago after they couldn't give me a satisfactory solution. I haven't received a response as yet.
I have removed the jack/tool bag from inside the vehicle and left it in the shed! What do I do now? Leave it out, or is there a better safer and securer solution?
