Hello all,

A while ago, I posted on the forum asking for some ideas about mounting a fridge in a Toyota Tacoma x-cab. Well, I accomplished the task and have been using it on trips for awhile now. It's great! I just finished an article on my website with some pics and info...

Also congrats, top work there, love the magnet to hold the lid. one thought, how about using some long seat tracks (or similar) to move the fridge sideways and allow it to lock in any position. wouldn't want that great fridge damaged in a prang !! Again, top job, must have taken quite a while, and a lot of stress.. Cheers, Brad. (isuzu trooper driver, aka jackaroo)

Thanks for the replies! Brad, that is an excellent idea. I will give it some consideration. Although, I cannot raise the fridge much more, if at all (the lid will hit the ceiling when opened) - so the rails would have to be extremely low profile. The cam system works pretty well - but I am not crazy about the looks - so I am considering some kind of third track that will have a sliding bracket of sorts - that can be slid and locked into place, and brace up against the side of the fridge to prevent movement.

i was thinking about the seat tracks from a 'space cab' or 'extra cab' ute like yours, as they have heaps of travel compared to normal seats. Most seat tracks can be removed from the mounting feet so they have a fairly low profile, and they are built to hold 200 pound plus, and withstand shock loads(accidents) with minimal slop. You could probably just use the ratchet side track in the middle of the roller tracks you have now, or at the front. Let me know how you go, yarda_will@yahoo.com.au Cheers, Brad.
