The rear door storage on the '03 Gen III doesn't serve much purpose save for a poorly designed way to stash headrests from the third row seat and a narrow but deep pocket for stowage of small items.
Working in film production with advancing technology making cameras and supporting gear smaller, I have a bunch of Pelican cases no longer being used, so I thought to adapt a small case, the Pelican 1400, using it for a first aid supplies container, installing it onto the door replacing the pocket.
While at it I picked up some Quick Fists in two sizes to mount an ax and a flashlight where they'd be readily accessible.
I removed the door pull handle located in the middle of the door below the backlight and used the existing hardware to mount the larger Quick Fists for the ax. I'll mount a smaller Quick Fist on the side of the Pelican case for the torch.
And the results...
I want to engineer a way for the first aid kit to break away using the same kind of cleat design used on the pocket, but for now it's hard-mounted to the door.
Next is the headrest space on the left. I'm thinking recovery gear there.
