Since I've had my X I think I've only opened my roof top box one time. What do you guys keep up there on a daily basis?

A short tow strap, more like a tree saver, and a few folded up pieces of industrial floor mat (carpeted top, rubber coated bottom) that I use when hauling stuff, also handy for throwing over a winch cable.

Life jacket and gloves after kayaking.
Trail shoes after hiking.
Left overs after dinner when it's cool enough out.
Small tool box with jumper cables in it lives there most of the time.

Any of you ever got your stuff stolen out of there? The ones that don't have the locking handle.
You'd be surprised how many people have no idea theres storage space up there. When I got my truck, guys who i consider "car guys" were surprised to see that.

To answer, in the winter pretty much nothing but summer time I keep some flip-flops and a little field supply kit with bug spray and sun block ect. I play a lot of disc golf so occasionally theres a putter or something in there too haha.

A pair of muddy shoes and a snatch strap. Lots of times when I changed a diaper it goes up there until I'm able to trash it.

On a daily basis, nothing.

I have used it to carry a stinky fuel rag. Wetsuit and wet towels stink when left in the truck, so they take a ride home on the roof. Really don't use it much, but like it when I do use it.

is it ok to leave snatch or tow straps in the roof box? I am worried that exposure to wet conditions on a regular basis may damage the straps or make them unsuable after a while. is it safe to do this?
