Nice work @JoleneD. What kind of ute do you have?
Hi Marty, I have an MN Triton. Regardless of the ute though, the process is the same. I had never done anything like this before. I made a list of things i needed access to the most (like fire extinguisher, first aid kit and tools to hitch my trailer), then I grabbed some carboard boxes and made a template. I used some scrap chipboard and off cuts of floor skirting from my local hardware store. I just used a drill and jigsaw, glued and screwed, then finished with a paint, then a gloss over it to make it a little more durable. My opriginal plan had a double shelf, however i found it was a little hard to see and access the jack attachments.
