Post Fridge/Freezer mount
A couple of years ago I bought a 37 quart ARB Fridge, very happy with this unit. But it's been
a PITA to store in a 710K with the shelves and my particular rear configuration (with a +12V Aux
battery box just behind the Tool box.

Given a couple of days off this week, some bits of Aluminum, I have finally solved this problem
with a Fridge mounting tray that clips and bolts into any one of the rear seat positions.

I am not set up with proper TIG welding so everything was drilled, tapped, and bolted. Nonetheless,
it's very sturdy with the ARB tie down straps.

Mounting tray is 3/16" 6061 plate, locked in place on Seat mounts and bolted in position.
A 1/2"x1/2" rail around the whole tray to accommodate tie downs and provide rigidity.

A piece of square Aluminum 1"x1"x1.5" slotted to catch the Seat clips and level the tray out.

Agree. This reminds how I need a K again. :)

Ya, well then I'd have two bad boys in the back drink'n up all my cold beer :P

Although I did cut this so it is symmetrical and would fit in any of the three seat
positions, my darn Monaco seats are so wide you can't fit the Fridge in between.
Might work with the (uncomfortable) stock Seats though. In the as seen position
the venting of the compressor is toward the back center of the truck, mounted
on the other side of the truck it would be toward the side panel, but I made sure
there was about 3" of clearance for airflow. Tray is 16" x 26" for this particular
ARB fridge.
