“Bumper Toolbox” Built Into Front Of Toyota Pickup
Judge James M. “Jimbo” Stephens recently sent FARM SHOW photos of a handy “bumper toolbox” he built for his new Toyota Tundra pickup. 
“When the pickup arrived, I realized the side rail toolboxes on my old pickup couldn’t be used due to the new swing-out toolbox design on new Tundras,” says Stephens. “The pickup came with a big grille guard, so I decided to replace the center bar on it with a 36-in. long, 7-in. wide piece of toolbar off an old Deere planter. I cut the top off the toolbar and closed up the ends.
“An 8-in. length of ‘C’ channel purlin made the perfect lid. By mounting it so it flips outward, I was able to use the lid as a work table.  It’s nice to have my tools right in front of me when working on a project.”
Stephens farms part time on 150 acres in northern Louisiana, where he serves as a Judge on the Louisiana Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
