I never did. A lot of people don't even know there are storage containers there. I put a snugtop on mine so they're permanently locked now.

Got one of those little lithium jump batteries in there now. Hell yea I lock 'em! The thing is amazing so far, jumped two 8.1 liter V8s on a 35' Regal. The batteries had some juice in them so this little thing had just enough to get it going again.  :thumbsup:

do you just fill it with ice or did you insulate it somehow?

I have only been an Av owner for a few weeks.  However, before I drove it off the lot, I locked the bags.  I keep it locked.  Wait until one of you Av owners has to replace the weather seal....  Gm wants $920 for the door including the seal.  Otherwise you can't just buy the seal.  I had to buy a whole door for just the seal ($100).  With the emergency gear I keep in there, I am not willing to give any part of my stuff or truck away.  let them work for it.  I live in a defend your domain state.

Gator6 seems like a company like Steele Rubber products might have or could make a seal for the areas on an AV and be cheaper than the dealer?

Yep, but no insulation. Even a cheapie cooler will keep ice longer than the saddlebags.
