Any chance you could snag a few pictures of your setup / positioning ?
I have a DII, so what I do probably won't work. Both refrigerators pack right up against the back seat. If someone can supply a D1, I can supply the Engel for a test pack. The ARB may be a little more complex, because our freezer at home broke, and it is our full time freezer for the time being. I usually pack with the refrigerator on the left side of the truck, with two Pelican cases stacked on top of each other next to it. My tools go in the middle of the backseat floor, so they are accessible, low down, and people can still sit in the backseat. Everything that doesn't fit in the Pelican cases goes on top of them or the refrigerator. I am planning on building a shelving/slide unit for the refrigerator now that I have my own.
With the Engel, I can think of two ways to pack it, so it would be easily openable.
1. With one of the back seats folded down, so that you can open it, and get things out through the rear door.
2. Sideways in the back of the truck, with things behind it.
I've attached a couple pictures to show the difference in opening.
