Default waterproof boxes/containers

Im looking for some water proof boxes for my atv. I bought some bungee cords and I have been using that plastic container to carry tools around. Just looking for any recommendations for boxes. Could be cylinder could be cubed.

I like army surplus ammo cans. They come in a variety of sizes. All my winching gear - ****** block, rope, gloves, etc. - fit in a .50 caliber can and I still had room on the rack for a cooler and gas can.

Nice, I have one sitting around I will weld some mounts to it and give it a fresh coat of paint.

I didn't have a welder so instead of welding mounts to the can I always just drilled holes for two U-bolts and bolted it down with the nut ends of the U inside the can. Then I cut the bolts off flush with the nuts and covered them with black RTV silicone. It worked really well and I never got water in the can.

That's a great idea. Thanks for the recommendation.

I just bought a small water tight case (WC-20) going to use it for my Futaba receiver. Clear top, uses four screws to tighten down the lid. The lid has a gasket around the edge. It also has two mounting holes on the box. It's a bit big for a buggy or touring car, but I'm using it for my trail runner truck so lots of room.

I was able to buy a hard luggage from 4 Wheel Online. The brand was Quad boss rack trunk. The box is big enough to store tools and spare parts and it has stealth design.
