Heh heh, those that know me know I like to "Gringo-ize" everything. So I wanted a rolling cooler to take with me bankside.
A couple wheels from Goodwill, a steel bar, a couple clips, drill a few holes a viola! One all terrain rolling cooler! After I took these pictures I replaced the outside cotter pins with pull pins so, if space is an issue I can pull the pins and wheels in about 10 seconds. The issue is that with the wheels, it does not sit level so I needed a 4" "foot" on the front to remedy that. BUT I also need it to be easy to remove like the wheels.
My solution is a plastic jar - glue the lid to the bottom/front/center of the cooler and screw the jar on. Then if I remove the wheels I just have to unscrew the jar and it will still sit level. I have a jar and tested it for weight capacity and stability and it works great, and in fact right now I just throw the jar inside the cooler until I get where I am going then pull it out and put it under the front of the cooler.
I am trying to do all mods without putting any holes in the inside of the cooler, so am trying to stay away from screws and such. I don't care how it looks as long as it holds, so a little melting is fine.
