My wife likes organizers and came up with this. Nice thing is it can easily be squished down played out of the way when bed space is required. If others have ideas for storage ideas then feel free to post those here.

Nice! Will it fit in the trunk?
I’m also looking for an insulated organizer that will fit and normally be in the “brunk”, moving to the bed or back seat floor when using brunk as an ice chest. Insulated to keep content and groceries “cooler” when in the brunk. Issue is height of only six inches. 36x17x6

There is another organizer similar to this one that has an added insulated section to keep things hot/cold longer. This is just one option for people to see. Also the organizer has two more straps that are not shown in the picture that we attach from the bottom of the organizer to the bed tie down rings in the back of the bed to keep the organizer from moving around.

Ah, so it doesn't fit in the trunk when fully deployed and in use.
No it does not. With the short height available you really couldn't stand much of anything vertically in there. Most everything has to be laid down horizontally. So perhaps the best for that space would be to get a sheet of foam and cut out traces of specific things you want to place in there, like a tool box drawer. Then it will be a perfect fit.

Here's my solution... Adjustable cargo bar from Harbor Freight along with a couple of totes. It's pretty handy and works well without any rattles or noise. Great for going to Costco or Sams Club. Keeps everything from rolling around. Can always put the totes in the back seat if I need more room.

I'd like to get one of these Cargo Bars, but I'd like to store it in the brunk. Most of them (like the one above) are 40" minimum length, which will not fit in the brunk even on the diagonal.

Does anyone know of a Cargo Bar that short enough to store in the brunk and expands enough to work in the SC bed?

ADDED: Because my local HTF actually had one in stock, I rushed over there and grabbed it. It appears it can be easily shortened by using the two holes already in it at each end to relocate the end rivets after cutting some off each end. I will post up the mod with pictures once done. It will great to have this sitting in the brunk anytime it is needed. Thanks for posting this up.

I completed this little project today. The HTF Haul-Master Cargo Bar is a little too long to fit into the brunk. The ends are attached with simple aluminum rivets.

I filed off the rivets smashed end to remove them, then initially cut 1.5" off each end. As it turned out that wasn't enough, so I cut another 0.5" off of each. Still a little long, so cut another 0.5" off of just the chrome end.

So in the end I cut about 2.5" off the chrome end and about 2" off the powder coated end.

That left the total collapsed length at about 36" which is a perfect size to set inside the brunk.

Although I had some aluminum rivets the right diameter, I ended up using common cotter keys trimmed to length to attach the end feet back on.

Fun afternoon project. It will be wonderful to have this locked securely in the brunk for use anytime I need it.

I finally got some junk in my brunk! ;)

I did it and it works great. Be careful as ratchet could overstress things. I cut 4” off both bars, drilled out rivets,redrilled and put new rivets in. Cut with grinder and cut off wheel. Took maybe 30 min. Harbor Freight also had some nice but cheap bungies and ratchet and clamp straps. Thanks so much for info
