Hi everyone
We have a 2008 Sahara and want to put a new or ( second hand ) draw system in we have a 60 litre ARB fridge that would need to go on drivers side. Looking to put 2 draws on opposite side.
We are north Sydney based.

It's between Drifta and ORS does any one have any experiences with either of these guys. Weight and cost are the big factors.
Thanks

Danny,

We fitted an ORS 2 drawer side-by-side aluminium unit with the 45 litre water tank (http://www.offroadsystems.com.au/pricelist_landcruiser_200.html) last August and so far, it has been excellent.

They are called Drawer Systems folks.
Draw is something one does to produce a drawing.

We all make mistakes sometimes, but I wonder how bad it can get before we lose the ability to decipher what is being written.

I got some flack a while ago because I questioned the SPALING.
Gramma' is getting too old to read now.
Draw, wif a Texta?
Draws, I'm wearing some now.
Do your breaks work? Are they broken, Do they brake or break.

One I saw was a post about the east and west McDonalds in central Australia. I didn't know Alice Springs had so many MACCA'S family rest your aunts.

When it is a key board key next to the intended one, I can understand a mistake has been made.
Maybe we do need Peter Gargoyle's Gonski more than we need burning insulation in out howsus..

Good points well made Ross.

Isn't it ironic that we now have more and more hardware to supposedly make communication easier, but at the same time we are degrading our language skills (through poor spelling, grammar, punctuation, limited vocabulary) so that communication is getting harder.

Cheers,

Val

Poor spelling must hinder internet searches, searching for draws would give a vastly different result to drawers.

I was in Total Tools yesterday looking for a new bench vise, I was surprised to see that on their boxes they were described as "Bench Vice".

Language and spelling are both constantly evolving , each and every generation produces new words and meanings , do we really want to go back to the 'thee's and thou's' of biblical terms or the wherefore art thou of Willy Shakemeup ,, We seem to conveniently forget that the English language is the most bastardised of any language in current usage..

An example:

I got this in an email yesterday. "well drive up saturday".

We were discussing going to a football match in Sydney next Sunday afternoon. The Parramatta verses Rabbitos game at ANZ. That's all he put in the email. No punctuation and so on. Previously just my wife and I were going. And then we had all spoken about them joining us and making a weekend out of it. However they had to adjust the shop rosters for both of them to be away at the same time.

So I understood it to mean; why don't just you two drive up on Saturday and we will join you for the game on Sunday. As if they couldn't shift the staff around and couldn't make it for the Saturday night.

So I booked accommodation and a dinner reservation for just my wife and I for the Saturday night and arranged to see some friends on Sunday until the game at 3PM.

That's not what he meant. He forgot the apostrophe in "We'll". In other words he was saying that "we will", that's all of us, drive up on Saturday.

AAArrrggghh

And people say that it's not necessary!

If a farmer sent "the whether was bad" in an email what would it mean if we didn't worry about spelling. You come across that word misspelt all the time.

I shouldn't have responded as the post was way off topic. Hopefully we will get an edit function one day that maybe the moderators will delete my post.

I agree about the evolving part but what's your point here?

Your post reminds me of a scene in Crocodile Dundee when he was in the bar and one of the local and he ahd a conversation and neither understood the other. Just before his encounter with the "other sex"!!

You just have to laugh.

Danny,

We have a 200 Series fitted with an ORS drawer system which incorporates a Drifta car back kitchen and a 60Liter ARB fridge.

The ORS drawers are made of aluminium while the Drifta unit is made from ply wood, but the whole set up is pretty light.

One aspect of the ORS system that I did not realize at the time of installation is how easy it is to remover and replace.

Very pleased with the system and especially the service from ORS.

Regards

Rob

We have a two drawer side by side system with a drop down fridge slide. Same as others above.

However we also have an extension, I think it's called a "bed extension", that reaches from the drawers forward to the rear of the front seats. The extension can be removed and the middle row of seats put back in the car in 15 to 20 minutes. Or vice versa.

With the fridge on the right hand side, this bed extension gives us enough room for a single bed on the left hand side. Ideal for a one up camping trip. We also sometimes put a second small fridge as a freezer on the extension, in front of the main fridge.

Worth thinking about.

Phil

Not the latest configuration but you can see the fridge on the bed extension.

G'day Phil
Nice set of those things, very handy.
I noticed you haven't got a safety barrier between the fridge and you.
If the event of a reasonable accident the fridge moving forward may just kill you a little bit.
I presume the later configuration has the safety built in.

Regards

Valid point I feel Ross as a cargo barrier is part of the package sold by nearly all drawer system manufacturers.

Danny,

The unit you describe is not a good idea for too many reasons that I have time to type. If you want to call me on 03 97906 6527 I can discuss it.

Cheers,

Jim.

Go the "drifta" ,B/Inlaw recently got the system same as your after [except 60lt engel] into his new 200 series and we have just fitted a 'Drifta' system into our new FJ Cruiser [comes with an inbuilt table that can be used as a shelf when loading the vehicle or removed in 1 sec and set up ] ,, weight and cost are a factor but also wasted space , bearings and rails on most units take up precious space ,how often is anyone going to sit in their drawer system as per the adverts to show how strong the slide system is ?? ,,Drifta ,no rattles no wasted space and brilliant service who also now export to the USA.
