If you have skills you could probably weld plastic tabs or fancy brackets to the crate.
I make my own block ice to fit perfectly along the bottom and half gallon cartons fit perfectly in between the crates. If I need a little more ice but need a dry crate I line the bottom of one with [almost] frozen beer and pour bag ice in to fill all the cracks so dry things can be elevated.
This was a divider thread so the way I stumbled on this idea was I previously had a crappy Igloo that I made a divider for but I didn't like where the slot for it was so I just dropped the milk crate in and it created two dividers that I could shift around.
I also hoard milk crates so...
