Any jack owners buit their own storage system? What's the best stuff to use? I want to be able to take it in & out regularly & what is the best way to fasten it down?

Currently I have a proto type of this type, Fridge on the right on a slide & crates on the left, but it is too heavy to put in & out, doesn't fasten down & the base is the only thing that really comes off.

Cheers

I have a 2002 Jack. The storage system is my own design. Very simple and easy to remove.
Made from marine ply and tied down using turn buckles on the exisitng tie down points. Fridge is mounted on slide screwed to storage system.
Basically the false floor fitts up against the rear seats and is the width of the rear opening. Three sections of ply (on edge) form the uprights with timber battens for corner support.
If you want I can take some photos. Just send you email info.

That would be great, my little picture drawing didn't turn out here. I have the fridge on the right with one shelf on the left with a couple of crates.

If you could Email w_o_z_@hotmail.com your photos that would be good.

Cheers

Yeah Jacka I made a shelf for the back of mine and finished it off, looks unreal but it won't come out easily-has fridge attachments too.
Let me know if you want pics of it and I'll send them to the email above.

Made my original one from qubelock aluminum for the patrol & it worked great, just screwed alloy angle to frame & used existing tie down points, lined with masonite & carpet from clarke rubber. check out this link

That Qubelock is the best and quite cheap too. I have used it for the back of the "Bitsaremissin" and the trailer. Light as and quick and easy to put your own spin on designs

Bob I have a qubelock factory down the road, it looks pretty good. How did you secure your fridge slide to the queblock?.

jackablue, I cut 12 mm ply with corners notched to fit around uprights & fit to base frame, drill & insert captive nuts to bottom place slid on & bolt down. Attach ply to frame with hex head roofing screws.

Jackablue,I have made two storage systems for the jack,one is a drawer system and the other is basically a false floor that uses plastic bins to slide in and out.
Both work well ,although at times I found the plastic bin system easier to use because you can carry the bins to where ever you need them.Both setups are bolted to the wheelarches where the fold down seats were situated.
I have played around with many ideas and will be more than happy to help if you want to bounce any ideas around,I can send photos if you require any.It definately helps to have some form of false floor or drawers.
