Looks great. I soo want to make myself a shelf system to stack my milwaukee boxes like you have yours stacked. Only problem is that I don't want to spend the time and money myself to put it in a van that is not mine. My boss would not spring for that.

milwaukee boxes are over rated. I looked at them many times and I even bought them twice to see how well it would store things. Truth is they waste a lot of space and the bins are too large for parts. Even the new slim case that came out wastes a full inch of space top and bottom just to clip to another case. For a cube van and a new commercial job site sure but in a van and in a house it doesn't make sense to me.

For example pex fittings, you need like 3 boxes, 3 boxes in a van takes a lot of space. On the job site those 3 boxes are strewn all over and you constantly trip over them or have to move them somewhere else to work.

I went with a husky tool box with dividers where all my fittings fit inside this one box. Then I have smaller parts organizers that fit more parts.

I have about $4,500 in the back plus all my time. We do mostly service work and Plumbing on remodels, no workbenches needed. I carry about $15,000 in material in the box truck and $8,000 in the smaller van. Try to always have what we need on every job. I'll add some pictures of the smaller van, all custom.

No. Not over rated, over priced maybe. I haveall my PEX fittings in 2 boxes not 3 and they stay clipped together at all times I can open the bottom one without taking the top one off. They are never in the way.
