Question Rear Storage location HELP

I have 07 Expo for a 8 months now and I need to find a good location to store straps other stuff out of sight. I have the rear AC on the right side of the cargo area, on the left side there is the wheel well that is just an empty space with the access from the top, does any company make anything to fit in there to hide tie downs or anything else so that they just don't move all around in that open space? I have been looking for awhile and have no luck. any help will be great, or if someone made something to fit there please sent pics or instructions.

Does an 07 have the floor bins like an 08?

Can you fit your gear in around the jack?
There is an empty floor bin ahead of that, its under the divider that you can pull up.

Oh you know what... I have an EL and I bet the length difference of a regular vs EL is where this second floor storage area fits.

Like Curtis, I have an EL
But there is a small access door on the left to shut off fuel you can put some stuff in that slot.

You also wrote that "on the left side there is the wheel well that is just an empty space with the access from the top"

I have opened mine to try a put a lock box for an extra hidden handgun storage...but the subwoofer is in that space on mine.

There's not much room in the trucks to begin with for compartment storage.

I ended up using the location of the subwoofer to store additional items after I scrapped the factory sound system. The other thing that can be done is create a false panel on the roof liner on the rear compartment. It will drop your ceiling height by 3" or so. But if your using it for straps and such it might just work for you.
