Behind the passengers rear quarter panel is a huge unused void. In the past I have seen it used for water storage and sub woofers. What other creative uses has others come up with?

If anyone has pictures of a Flexitank installed in the void I would like some feedback and pictures.

I'm thinking of mounting my Viair compressor in there if I can mount it without it vibrating the truck to much. Planning on placing the detachable air inlet/filter behind the unused speaker vent.

My OBA control system lives in place of the factory subwoofer, a 1500 watt inverter lives in place of the storage box and a duplex receptacle, 12 volt port and dual USB port live in place of the ash tray.

Every time I load up the truck I cringe thinking of all the wasted space in the back. I do have the left side stuffed full of stuff like spare cooling hoses, tow straps, and a shovel but the passenger side is merely wasted. I have seen some folks add a circular marine access panel but I don't think that is the best solution, I suppose it would work though. I tried to get Springtail Solutions to come up with something a while back; I certainly was not smart enough to come up with any really good ideas.

I currently keep a bunch of fluids in there. A gallon of coolant, 3 quarts of motor oil and a 2 quarts of gear oil.

Are y'all talking about the small cubby hole or removing the whole panel? I have an LX450 so I think it's different than an 80.

I've the Flexitank, but am 200+ miles from the 80 an the moment. I'll add pics when I get back Tuesday or Wednesday. Feedback. We use it primarily for washing hands, cutting boards and utensils. I've drank from it but normally carry the drinkable H2O in a 5 gallon jerry can. It was a pain to install, it may have been just mine but the tank nut inserts didn't seem spaced properly and I could only get 3 of the 4 lined up at first. After a month or two I got the rest.

Jeff, in the CSC club has an ARB 12V compressor hidden in there as well as electric gadgets for his fridge, etc.
