Overhead aircraft style storage with doors

Recommended Posts

Who has a TC with the mid-vehicle overhead storage compartment that looks like the carry-on luggage compartments on airplanes? Not the open shelf above the dash, but the one that is further back. The TC I'm getting has this, and I wondered about the pros and cons of having this. As a typically messy-car person, I'm hoping it helps to keep some things tucked away, hence less mess.

The aircraft-style storage bins are nice. The only problem is the door opening is small and this limits storage. For example, a  hand bag or purse will not fit. I use it to store small bottles of water, small tools etc..

Plenty of cheap car storage organizers available without the need of expensive and bulky overhead bins.

I like the aircraft style storage bins; they are great for storing some of the things that I like to have in my car, but rarely need access to, such as first-aid kit, emergency kit and supplies, flashlight, some small basic tools, etc. They are always there, never in the way, neatly put away. And for $100, I think it is a reasonable option for storage that is unobtrusive. That being said, I never carry passengers who might want to use the bins for themselves.

Anyone have a pic of one other than a stock ford image? Also, I need part numbers. I work at a dealership and can't seem to find part numbers for these bins. I'd like to price out how much it would be to add these to my TC.

Here is a picture. 

My manual has a number next to the image. Possibly a part number?

My kids love them and I do too. Not large but perfect for their iPad, jacket, tissue box, first aid kit, chargers and headsets, etc.  We like them enough that we are searching for a second set to see if we could put it above the third row/just behind the second.
