How to install a waterproof storage box on a roof rack for overlanding. Quick-release rooftop cargo box on a Toyota 4Runner, but they can also attach to aftermarket roof racks on a Tacoma, Jeep, Subaru, truck, anything with a flat crossbar.

We use large Plano gun cases, or rifle case, but any plastic or aluminum gear bin can be mounted the same way. Our DIY method mounts an inexpensive waterproof storage case securely and safely to our roof rack bars.
