I unfortunately, have to replace my tired old truck. It was an extended cab so I had kept a couple rods and my tackle box in it at all times for a last minute fishing trip. It looks like I may not be able to afford an extended cab (thanks to the Cash for Clunkers program that destroyed the used vehicle market for buyers, but that's another story), so I have a question for y'all.

What ways are there to store fishing rods safely and securely? No cap, the smaller rod can probably fit inside a tool box in back but not the 11 footer, no toneau cover.

I was thinking some sort of wood box under the rails and over the wheel wells. Or large diameter pvc pipe mounted to a rack system. I figured maybe someone out there has a more clever solution.

TIA

I don't have any ideas for rod storage in a truck, but I'm glad to see you posting again. Does this mean things are going well with your recovery and you'll be back fishing sooner than you thought?

Question two if by sea

what did you replace your truck with?

have you sent JOHNR (our fearless leader)
a letter for an S-B sticker
so that other S-B ers will see you and make conversation on site.

Hope your feeling better these days and sorry about the prognosis.

I've seen many rack systems rigged up on trucks so that the rod/reel can be locked up (ie. bike chain).

hope all is well health wise, and if ever have any questions PM me (a field I'm familiar with).

wishing you a full and speedy recovery.

A lot of guys have rocket launcher type rod holders coming out the bed of their pick-up (5/0 made a nice one for me).

Thanks guys. Not up for fishing yet. Hemicolectomy was done (partial colon removal), no idea on chemotherapy and/or radiation followup, hope to know that one soon. I'll be fishing by another month hopefully.

I expect I'll be through this again, my genetics show me to have a predisposition for colon cancer like my father, grandfather, great grandfather, great great grandfather, and many cousins. The good news is very old age runs in the family too.

I've got it down to two trucks right now, an '07 Silverado V6 2WD, and an '09 F150 V8 2WD. Both regular cabs. I'm leaving a Ranger extended cab that I could store tackle box and two rods in with no problem.

Storing 2 piece rods a 7 footer and an 11 footer usually but I have a few others and a 1 piece 6 footer. But I don't mind tossing that in the back when I'm going fishing, this is for two rods with me at all times so I can fish on a whim.

Looks like it will be the '09 F150. Fit the budget and is just broken in. Some room behind the seat, may not need to worry about the storage now, we'll see if I get to bring it home. It will be nice not risking my life driving my current truck to work or fish....
