I pretty much just put my smelly socks and clothes after hiking in the wetbox. I think I've also put a few empty beer cans up there too....

I am trying to brainstorm what else to use it for, not sure what I can put up there semi-long term since its exposed to the elements (I live in the NE).

What stupid or useful things do you use your wetbox for?

Mine has contained at various times depending on need: 2GL Rotopax, small shovel, jumper cables, tow strap, fire extinguisher, tarp, and wag bags.

I cut a 4"x12" piece of tin for each side. That keeps a lot of water from entering the side of the box, think car wash.
I stow recovery gear up there as well as hoses for airing up/down. I changed the handle to a locking handle so nothing can wander off on its own. ;)

For the most part, my wet box is just for looks.
I rarely ever use it for anything.

There have been threads here before about installing a locking latch on that top box but when I’ve looked up the needed part (Southco 92-41-511) it’s pretty expensive - way more than it used to be apparently. I think having that box lock would make it way more useful.

Most of the time I either have a cargo rack or a topper up there, either of which block access so it rarely gets used. I've considered designing in a trap door when I get around to building a custom rack so I could use it as a security box kinda thing. Haven't thought it all the way through but I'd like to keep it accessible and functional somehow. Meh, someday

Not really. I have that locking latch from Southco on mine and rarely keep it locked. Never had anything stolen. Most people don't even know there's a box up there.
This. I live in an area where unlocked vehicles are rummaged though regularly and no one has touched mine in 3 years. I wouldn’t store diamonds or gold up there but a tow strap/recovery gear/camping equipment etc would be fine. These items aren’t exactly sought out by thieves either.
