What Do You Have In Your Side Compartments?
« on: 02/24/02 08:54 AM »

I was just wandering what everyone puts in those handy rear side compartments????

I have a slim-jm kit and hitch accessories in oneside and the other side is filled with MOTHERS wax and cleaning supplies.

Side with jack (locked) - all emergency stuff (jumper cables, flairs, outlet tire pump, straps, chains (for pulling out Jeeps  :'( when off-roading, ... etc).   Compartment still has additional room.

Other side has extra clothes and boots - for winter.  Will be changing to Summer Stuff (golf shoes, sneakers, fold up-cooler ...)

Left Side: 2 wool blankets, Sorrells, gloves, bunny hat and original bowtie emblem.
Right Side: Hitch with 1.75, 2, 2.25 balls, two tow straps another hat and set of gloves plus GM stuff.

FYI: for you non-military types, a bunny hat is the hat similar to what Randy Quaid wears in Christmas Vacation - ideal for when you get stranded somewhere cold.

Believe it or not, last night I shoved an entire full-length golfer's size umbrella into one of the side compartments.  I could not believe it swallowed the whole umbrella and asked for more! ;D

What else would you expect from a Sport Luxury Utility Truck?

I've got a flashlight, tow rope, and tire iron in the passenger side.  The driver's side is currently empty and waiting for warm weather so it can prove to me how many cans and how much ice will fit. ;)  It's going to come in real handy this summer when we take the kids out west to see Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone.

Does anybody know if the compartments will keep cold for any length of time?  How fast will the ice melt?  And what happens if you try to drive around with melting ice in the compartment?

The compartments are not insulated like an Igloo cooler, and there is access to outside air from the drain in the bottom.  When the ice melts it will just drain out below the truck.
In the summertime, that black truck of yours will most likely enhance the hypothermic decay process of your frozen H20.  Park in the shade and consume beverages quickly. ;D ;D ;D

Took ours camping week before last, loaded the left hand side up with drinks, right hand side with, um, stuff.  Drinks stayed cold all weekend.

Of course, it was 19 degrees outside when we got up.....

I was seriously thinking of using the side compartment as a cooler when we go camping.  Then I don't have to bring a big bulky cooler on the trip.  Of course, one of the reasons I bought the Av was because of all the room in the bed to place a big bulky cooler that wouldn't fit in our minivan.

Oh - so many Av options and so many decisions!!!  Life is rough.......

Generally I keep my AV cleaning stuff in the one compartment and an ice scraper in the other. I went to the beach with a few  friends a few weeks ago when it was nice and I filled up the one compartment with a case of beer and poured Ice on top. Words can not explain how cool that was. I didn't eve have to empty the water when the ice melted. GM Rocks!!!!

With a black AV in dusty KS, I have one of those car dusters in my side compartment and a couple of cotton towels....next to my golf shoes.  The duster gets a workout...  the golf shoes have been neglected a little since the AV arrived as is getting so much attention.

I am proud to say I signed for my AV yesterday and have already found this forum to be a very good way to spend my spare (and not so spare) time.

I have noticed that anytime the words " I wish it could ..." are mentioned, a mod quickly appears to make it so.  

Is there anyway these side bars could be insulated to ensure cold beverages stay cold in the Texas heat?
