GrammaD They sent me a picture of a similar custom box (this one is smaller, ours will be 48Wx36Lx30H) and I like it. I'll be changing the door from the square mesh to a bar grate. Otherwise I think this will be perfect for my purposes:

Thanks for the tip!
I found them when I was looking for crates. It was an ad showing the top 10...I liked their look, so I investigated : ) So glad I did too!

I actually got a BMW 5 Series wagon. Can't do SUVs. The wagon has all the space and better gas mileage, plus is much more fun to drive.

Now I just have to measure and decide if I want to spend my tax refund on a kennel...

It's also great that it telescopes so you can make it longer or shorter depending on your needs.

Strongly considering it because its probably something that will be useful for my whole life and its nice because you will still be able to use the rear view mirror with that in there.

Those are nice, love all the visibility it provides for the dog : ) That site is very easy to navigate through too, all prices and products were easy to identify! Which one were you interested in?
