View Full Version : 100 series drawer/storage

03-31-2011, 10:30 AM
Spent a few hours last week building a box for the rear of my truck. $110 and some elbow grease. Stole most of my ideas from MUD. I used 5/8 plywood and 1 5/8 screws. It can be removed in a matter of minutes if I want to put a seat in the 3rd row. Eventually I'll build a drawer and a cover for the rt side. Used 3m spray adhesive and indoor/outdoor carpet. 1" Staples to hold carpet to end grain. There is an access panel on the left to store things behind the wheel well. I can get out the jack and other tools in the panel on the rear fender. Got the wife's stamp of approval.

That's the most important part. I definitely don't have it with mine. She drove my rig last week and complained about the lack of vision. Hope I can finish the drawer before CM11.

Looks cool Farnham, but I thought you were putting the tire back out on the bumper? :confused:

Nice work. Me likely.

Yes, moving the spare for Cruise Moab. So I have that "spare tire on the bumper look"

We're not bring the camper this year so we'll need a little more trunk space. I plan to make 2 shelves that drop into place on the rt side. One for with and one without spare tire. I was also thinking it could work to mount a water container where the spare is currently?. I haven't come up with a good way to carry water in the cruiser yet.

I don't think Porter approves of that set up either.

Nice job Farnham, looks like you got a nice start there.

James Krieger 'Woodsman" dropped by tonight for dinner en-route to the Ouray FJSummit..

He also happened to have a single drawer for me! Thanks James..

The craftsmanship on this drawer is really incredible.

If you want one like this or a dual system, send him a PM.

Now what to put in the drawer??

Outer dimensions are: 37x22x11

Hey Chris question on your fridge eyelets- did you just drill holes through the floor and put washers underneath? Or are you tied into something else that was already part of the truck?

Hey Tim,

I thought I posted this a ways back but could not find.. I posted up the same in mud, here is what I posted a few months ago:

I made a platform last week and finished it up tonight. I used the mat as the template.

I would love a fridge slide but POs are hard to come by around here. This mod cost me under 100.00. Might add a single drawer if my carpenter buddy has time to fab me one..

I used existing bolt holes to mount the platform to rig, so no drilling. Added an extra piece on the forward end to compensate for the dip. I also choose the fridge location because Ben can still recline his seat if tired and I can open the fridge and the lid will stay open.

I added carpet to the top of the drawer over lunch (;)) today. Really hesitant to spray sticky glue on the drawer but wanted to make sure it stayed put and protected the hand crafted drawer.

And I made a platform for sleeping that I covered with carpet also.

I am no carpenter but I am happy with the way it came out. Really simple but functional and clean..

Looking good.....is that sleeping platform going to be long enough?

ahhh yes.. Funny it is even a bit short for me, my skill saw blade was dull and I wanted a clean cut so the platform kept getting shorter and shorter...hahaha

Really for all you tall guys, you would need the platform to go all they way to the back of the front seat, but I don't need that much distance.. :o
