Nice Cooler Upgrade

PostWed May 24, 2017 8:45 pm

For those with the older Pioneers with the Igloos, this may be of interest. I purchased an RTIC 65 to replace mine and ordered a cushion from Butthurt seats. The cooler lines up great with the existing floor brackets and stays put with some stainless lock brackets to use as tie downs. Below are links where I purchased. All for less than a YETI. I'll post pictures once PhotoBucket gets back online..

Put my new rtic cooler in today. Fits great! Those mounting bolts fit perfectly with the existing brackets. Thanks for the tip. Seems like it will not slip around or break loose.

Glad it worked for you. I was happy with the fit also. Doesn't seem to move at all even if the brackets are loose. As far as cushion, I could only find two sites online to make a one for the ytic. The one I got from Butthurt is white and a perfect fit. These coolers are wider and and more stable than the igloos and seem to hold just as much even though they are called 65 quarts.
