here what I did.
1. bought 3 ammo cans for $30:
-1 30 cal
-2 50 cal (the fat ammo cans)
2. had 4 1" spacers, and extra bolts (free)
3. bought a Tuffy tie down kit for $20 (yeah I could made them but I don't have the time).

So I drilled 4 holes, bolted the 2 50 cal cans together, drilled and bolted the tuffy tie downs to the tub, and then bolted the 50 cal cans to the tie downs. The 30 cal can isn't bolted down because that's for my first aid kit and I wanted it to be carryable. anyway here's some photos.

In my Jeepster the seats are mounted to the cage with 1.5/.125 square tube.I mounted a 50 cal ammo box between the front seats to the crossbars.

not exactly "bolt on", but they are bolted to the tub.
I built two boxes on top of the wheel wells,


then I built a "truck" that fits behind the rear seat,

the trunk section can be moved forward(when the seat is out, and I need more storage), and a lid/tonneau can be added.

the seat brackets are still in place, and it only takes a few minutes to remove the tonneau section and reinstall the seat.

I used wood for mine, and just covered it with a couple coats of spray can bed liner. it's been in for about 3 years now, and is holding up pretty well.
