    We do a lot of road trips, and often bring a cooler full of groceries. Ours doesn't fit in the frunk, nor in the underneath compartment in the back. I'd love a cooler optimized for either space. Anyone have one that works well in either of those spaces?

    Do you have exact dimensions? I have a friend in the custom cooler business, as a bonus they are some of the best insulating coolers I have ever used. I could inquire about having one custom made for the Model X.

    Yeti makes awesome coolers, and has several sizes that will fit in the rear cargo well with third row in place.

    Custom Tesla Model X frunk cooler would be awesome. Now that I think about it, there is no 12v power outlet in the frunk so would be nice if we had this power outlet as well from factory.

    Thanks for the photo. Does it fit with the third row up?

    Yes, third row can be up. You can check out price and specs. on gander website. It's a pain to latch unless you lift it a few inches.

    I got the Igloo MaxGold Glide 110 Quarts wheeled cooler from Costco. It first perfectly in my MX. You may need to jam something into the sides to keep it from moving around, but if it's loaded up it won't slide around.

    Here's a photo:

    Those are cool, but what I really want is one that will fit in the underneath compartment in the trunk. I fold down the third row and have my two big dogs back there. I need a cooler that will be completely underneath.

    That would be cool! If you find one that fits the spot please share, as I'd be interested in getting one too. Powered would be a nice touch :D

    Yeti 45 just fits in the frunk. Presses on the liner but will not contact the lid. 20171118_145904.jpg

    Consider the Engel ~60qt for the X which will serve as both a refrigerator and a freezer.

    The largest that will fit in an S is the 40qt and I recommend the marine version thereof for that purpose. It serves as *either* a refrigerator or a freezer.

    Given that the X has more headroom, the larger size makes sense. On the other hand, it’s possible that the 40qt could fit in the X frunk. Interesting option, especially since the S now has just a microfrunk.

    Any Engel uses very little power and has only one moving part (swing compressor).

    I’d suggest getting whichever model you choose from West Marine and getting the walk-in replacement warranty. Not because they fail, but because if you do get a bad one, it’s an easy swap with no shipping hassle. For inland, Bass Pro Shops might be an option.

    A remote temperature sensor and wireless display kit is useful. I keep the display in the console. Temperature is maintained within 1-5 degrees depending upon the time of year.

    Lastly, you’ll want a dedicated fused 12V receptacle and cable run from the fuse box for this. As long as you’re doing that, consider a Y at the end to have a spare 12V source in either the trunk or frunk depending upon where you choose to have the fridge/freezer.
