Default Open space!

So I was looking under the front of the truck today just because! I saw behind the front bumper, in the area where a hitch would be there is a huge open space! Has anyone thought of putting anything here with a custom made mount or possibly a winch if you modify the front bumper. Here is a picture with the top of my dogs head! He followed me under haha.

I'm thinking a front bumper fold out beer cooler.
The gun and rocket launcher is behind the seat.

Haha! All good ideas I especially like the beer cooler! Although I would like some possible input and maybe some pictures of anything people have done.

Might be a good place to put an ARB air compressor for lockers and airing up tires!

I'll get some pictures but, I cut the center out of the bumper filler and put some perforated stainless cut to shape over the opening. Then I mounted this behind bumper in that space with a custom mount.

My engine oil temp got way to high in the mountains while towing my travel trailer on my last camping trip.

Very nice ideas! I don't tow right now but also a nice idea. I would enjoy some train horns and I have been looking for a good place to put a compressor!
