I found this today looking through my Northern Tool & Equipment catalog. Possible more affordable solution for a drawer system. A little too deep at 48" for an 80 series. I'll have to measure my 60 when I get home. There is a 26" deep version but the drawers are not very deep(6"). The one pictured is 9"

OK, more affordable than the African Outback at $1500.00

Make it yourself, I made mine out of pine to the dimensions I wanted. Rather than drawers I flip the hinged top up. This goes the full length of my 62 from the front seats to the gate. Two pieces so I can use the back seat if I want to.

IMHO, it's a lot easier to get at stuff from the top than open the gate and pull out drawers. It cost about $100 including wood, piano hinges, carpet, adhesive, screws, etc.

You know. I am about $45 into my setup and I am about 50% done. Much cheaper to do it yourself.

What my question is, and keep in mind I have never messed with sliders before, how do I attach the sliders? Do I put them on the drawer first then main unit or etc etc....
