    I removed mine from my 2019 Z19. On the rod tube side it was just 2 or 3 screws along the top and the whole thing slides right out. The rod butt end was probably 4-5 screws and entire thing came out. Easy Peazy

    Lot more room. Back shelves help keep the rods separated. Don't have worry about catching the rod eyes and breaking them off

    I know itís normally overkill but I typically keep 20-25 rods in my locker. I prefer to use rod socks to keep my rods from getting tangled together and protect the eyes. Iíve used this method for all 3 bass boats Iíve owned and it just works better for me personally

    The rod tubes are nice and you can get alot of rods in there if you double up.... but it so much easier and quicker to get rods in and out without the tubes.
