I am considering the new 2014 Dodge ProMaster for its vast amount of cargo capacity but I have thought of getting a tool box or storage unit for my tools as well. Just want to see what is out there an available for the Dodge Promaster. I have never had the luxury of owning a chest or shelves in the back, Can you guys recommend anything?

This type of storage rack would be the best for my purpose of use. And those shelves look like they are in the chevy express, the ceiling height almost seems to be double in the Dodge Promaster. Just looking at the pictures makes me realize how much space you free up in the rear when going over to a front wheel drive.

When the promaster is available for purchase it'll be nice to see what everyong rigs up in the back. I've seen some impressive setups on some other vans.

Same here, we have a lock smith in my city that uses a Savana and his setup is quite amazing and clean. Also some Snap-On tools trucks have wicked setups, other very messy.
Can't wait to see those promaster setups!

Sortimo and Bosch

There has been a quite cryptic announcement that Bosch will partner with Ram on the work trucks and the Promaster release.

I think it is very important for the Promaster, relative to work storage in the van.

What is known and can be deduced are the following:
The Promaster was shown at the auto shows with Sortimo Globelyst bins and racking, which is a very nice system:
http://international.sortimo.com/Company.2144.0.html







Note the Bosch tool boxes (notable by their color) in the van.

Bosch has licensed the Sortimo box system for their Bosch L-Boxx system:

Many of the power tools can be purchased in the L-Boxx system

Bosch and Sortimo have a joint venture called BS Systems.

It is quite conceivable that in the near future, you will be able to order a Promaster (and Chrysler C/V) with the Sortimo shelving (branded as Bosch) custom fitted at point of sale.

Ranger Design also offers shelving which seem nice:

but right now, Sortimo seems the best to me.

thats a wicked setup, good to see there's already shelving support.
it's going to be cool to see how people configure their shelving

Love all these shelving units to help keep things organized I feel that it is a big upgrade. Right now I have the heavy duty plastic ones but have been beat over the years. when the promaster comes I might just consider one of these.

I hope they also have some more narrow shelving units, some people could really use more floor space for other things.

the composite fiber plastic ones are pretty strong and light.

I'd pick those over metal.

Metal is heavy.

But ABS plastic kind of storage is garbage. Just cracked over time.

I have the System Edstrom stuff in my current Sprinter. Definitely expensive but it will be the last shelving I need buy. I got a lot of it at 40% off and it still seemed outrageous. That Sortimo stuff looks very nice.

I picked up a WeatherGard shelf unit since I really only needed one for some small tools and chemicals. Most of the back of mine is empty to allow me to cram as much equipment in the back as I can. I just got a sheet of rubber "diamond plate" and cut my own floor and used some firewall insulation to insulate the back to try and maintain a more consistent temp - I may put walls in it at some point as well. Between the OEM cargo rings and some ETRAK, things stay in place pretty well. The cargo net has paid for itself too.

Ranger design shelving

I bought the Ranger design shelving. I have a 159" but but the distributor gave me shelves for the the extended. So I cut down the drivers side side shelf and kept the passenger side long. These shelves are great. Plus I only paid 1,000 bucks for a 5,000 unit.
