Has anyone found a way to keep water out of the rear tool box of a Foreman? I carry a portable compressor, plug kit, etc. that needs to stay dry. I tried keeping them in Ziploc bags but they seem to bounce around in there and tear holes in the bag. When this happens and I cross the river everything gets soaked. I know that my dad's Rancher AT has a seal around the box but I don't know if it keeps water out. He doesn't get his off the farm and never has to cross water. Just wondering what you guys have came up with.
Thanks,

I would like to know as well. I lost a Sony digital camera last year because
of the trunk leakin' water in. The camera was destroyed due to all the water
that got in the trunk.

There is no way to seal it up without replacing it with something else. Most people just buy an aftermarket box and mount it to the rack to keep certain item dry. Wally World carries a small plastic orange marine dry box that is sealed. Any sporting good store should carry these, we have two of them that the wife carries on her bike and everything stays dry.

Since the kids ride with us, we have to carry so much stuff. I got one of
them big plastic atv trunks for the rear. Everything we use to have to
split up between both our atv's now go's in my trunk. A very handy
accessory.

I may have to make a trip to Wal-Mart and see these. Thanks.

They should be in the fishing section. ammo boxes work well also. We pick ours up a Sport Acad. They had more of a selection of sizes and colors. We just use lastic straps to hold them down in place.

I found a tupper ware container that just barely fits in the tool box so it holds just about as much as you can stuff in there anyway. Problem solved. Getting old ammo boxes or something for the racks isn't a bad idea also. You can never have too much gear with you.

The ammo box has a good water tight seal, most people drill holes in the bottom of the box and use u-bolts to mount them down. using alittle RTV around the holes will seal them back up. When not in use, all boxes need to be left open to be able to vent, so moisture will no form.
