Great job. The cooler looks like it fits almost perfectly - where did you get it?

Cool hack. Looks great. Super handy too! Thanks for posting. (And isn't the frunk also a cooler anyway? Like you can just throw a few ice gel packs in there and toss whatever else in there if you wanted in any of the sections?)

This is a food shipment cooler that we got tamales delivered in from Texas to Michigan. Kept them well-refrigerated (with dry ice and an ice gel pack).

You could do the same and get some tamales delivered from Texas Lone Star Tamales and keep the cooler. =D

If you want to try to find it directly, this is what is stamped on top:

LOL, I love me some tamales, but there are lots here in SoCal. Almost worth it just for the cooler, though :p

I will check out the link and see if I can locate something nearby. Thanks!

The Frunk is not actually insulated, so your ice and gel packs will melt quicker without an actual cooler. We just use this for a couple of 6-packs or a gallon of milk en route from the grocery to home, but with a freezer pack it will keep things cold for many hours.

IKR? ;-) If you do order the tamales, get the Grande sized ones so they'll be as big as you are used to. Very good. Highly recommend. =D

That might be what I need. I just need something easily removable where I can put my tools since right now I use something like this in my trunk. Really I just need to be able to remove all my tools in one shot like this container and be able to drop in my suitcase for trips. I never planned on keeping the trunk dividers either way

Respect for the Dragon's Milk White earning the cooler spot while the Roak gets the sides.

Good idea! Why did Ford make the divider removable in the first place?
Because it was a stop-gap measure to be able to sell the car with a non-functional frunk release button inside the frunk. Once solved, the divider is no longer in vehicles, nor are there holes for the mounting of it. It was eliminated midway through 2021.

I think it is highly useful to keep grocery items from rolling around.

Ford should have kept the mounting holes in place and made the dividers an order-able option, or at least made available as an accessory. Of course there is the other implied feedback that the center portion should have been more easily removable by design.
