Abstract/Summary

This senior project discusses the design, construction, evaluation and cost analysis of side mounted truck tool boxes and a fuel transfer tank. The need for the boxes arose when specific tools and extra fuel had to be carried at all times. The objective was to build a set of tool boxes and a fuel transfer tank to fit a Ford short bed and still have a four foot wide area in between the boxes. Results show objective being met, but cost analysis shows that it’s not feasible for low scale production.
