    FYI, he's got a van, not a pickup... but the tank rack he has on the floor and the shelves/hooks for hanging stuff on, you could probably build something similar to suit an open-air bed.

    Well this was from exclusively diving Open water, those would be tank boots.... However my Lp85's also have boots on them cause I like tank boots.

    is that the shape of an LP85?? I have never seen mine without boots so I don't know.

    Why yes that was me in shorts and a t-shirt @ the 700' marker

If you shove a bag of some sort or some fins between the valves then they won't smash into each other, either. I had built a wooden rack out of 2x4's with eye bolts screwed into it on the front and sides that would hold five 7.25" tanks upright, but once I got into cave diving and then sold my truck, I had no use for it and gave it to a buddy that just got OW certified.

    I keep all of my lights, regs, and parts in separate clear plastic Sterilite or Rubbermaid boxes from Walmart. They stack securely enough that they usually won't fall over when I'm driving to/from a site. The tanks just get ratchet strapped into the cargo area of the 4Runner or stuff is stacked around them to prevent them from rolling/sliding out of the spot I put them in when I was packing the car.

    That said, I think Tony Flaris has the best setup I've seen for keeping gear organized.
    Thank you!

    Mine is a custom built setup. Andrew Boyer and I built it.
