It has bars across the bottom, could stick up a couple of inches or more above the top of the frame, the old one does. Any suggestions? The prospector was the only one I found that comes close. Ouch $410 for a cooler though
Just buy an Igloo, or whatever you can find that will fit, and do a good job of taking care of it, some extra foam around all the exposed sides, wet towel, or paco pad over the top. Maybe that's what you've been doing all along, but you can get along quite nicely spending way less on a cooler, if your not made of money.
One cooler hinge repair trick, is to through bolt webbing to the cooler in place of the old crappy hinges it came with.
