    I roll them. Used to keep them in the storage behind the seat(MC). Now with the CC I found that if I lift up the seat there is a little spare room under the back of the seat, without opening the storage compartment. I slide them back there as there's not much room for anything else.

    I am sure there is a living thing who like to make a big mess in the ratchet strap bag and like to tangle them badly....
    The best and only way to avoid that is rolling them up, secure the roll with a rubber band or similar and stow them ony by one in a bag (zip-loc, old sock, sunglass stirage bag, etc).
    Otherwise just drop them in a bag and let this strange living thing have fun and have fun too to untangle the whole mess when we need the straps.

    Yes, i have them in zip-loc bags and stowed under the rear bench in my quadcab.

    I like to throw them under my back seat and then spend at least 5 minutes bitching and mumbling to my self every time I need to pull one out. :crazy:

    People store their Christmas lights? I always thought it was easier to just buy a new set with a new tree each year... :roflsquared:

    This is my method. Either I bitch having to roll them up to make em look good and be easier to grab when needed, or bitch when I need one.
