I made this a couple of years ago, I think for the Rubithon trip. Got a couple of 100 lbs drawer slides and built a base for our Engel. Seemed to work alright, so I went to test fit and mount it in my truck and, duh, it made the whole thing too tall to roll out the back of my truck. Mini truck is right! :doh:

So it's been sitting, waiting for me to come up with something, maybe shorter, I dunno. Maybe building the tray part upside down so that the fridge sits down inside, but that would mean remaking the whole thing.

What I do know is that it's been going on 3 years and it's just got 3 years of dust on it. Away it goes, it might work as is, maybe the slides are worth experimenting with, whatever, it just needs to go.

$20 or whatever seems fair. I know those slides gotta be worth something. They are not stainless, but they are full length slides that with a latch the locks in the extended position.

Dave, was this made for the inside of the truck or for in the bed? What is the height of it? I think it should work in my 4runner and if so I will take it. Just send me the dimensions please and I will measure my truck.

I will measure it tonight. Roughly the platform part is a few inches longer and about as wide as a Engel MT45. So that's about 26" x 15". Pretty sure the whole thing is about 4 inches tall.

I know I need to call you. This weekend is no good, maybe late Tuesday afternoon or Wed-Fri next week. I could meet up tomorrow, too.

What time could you meet? It is no big deal as long as I get it about a week before Moab. If you can provide me with the exact dimensions I can lay it out in the truck and build around it.
