The next 80 series mod...Stove in the tailgate :D

I'm pretty sure this is the same gent that replaced his rear windows with a hinged "door". Soooo....Anyone want to jump on this before Rubithon? :hill:

Seriously though...For small family outings and what not this seems like a pretty :cool: deal. I still think I'd prefer the storage dealyo another MUD member is working on over a stove but I like the thinking outside of the box :thumb:

I saw the thread on MUD. Its clever but I prefer to have the stove portable and to not have a propane tank in the tailgate. I'm curious how much it rattles and how hard it is to clean out spilled food debris.

clean out spilled food debris.

In my case simply leaving Porter in the back would take care of such things.

I think if you can mount it snug enough and have it well secured, you could hard line a tie in for the tank and just screw the bottle on and leave the stove in the tailgate all the time. Cool thinking if nothing else.

Pretty cool. Seems like an ideal spot.

I have to put something insulating between my stove and tailgate because it gets pretty hot, so I guess I'd also be worried about the paint getting melted.

Now you just need the gas tank mod from the Marks box and the stove can be the pre-ignition in a good rear end for the tank itself. :lmao:

Cool thinking.
I like my stoves portable though. Seems like as often as not I am cooking in the rain or snow, mostly hunting.

I'd bet it would be easy to rig up an awning from the back of a wagon, 'specially if it has a roof rack. That would be slick.

I thought about something similar but fitting in a 2 burner. Cut the top of a coleman off and bolt it in. I looked at using food grade cutting board plastic to replace the carpet. Also considered just replacing the carpet with cutting board.
