I have come across on another web site a company that is liquidating storage drawer system for 100 series L C and that can be modified quite easily to suit 80 series..Apparantly the company bought a stack from a company that was going belly up or something and have to get rid of same..They are the same dimensions as the ones that come from North Qld..Gal sides and frames ..roller bearings..Ply top & marine carpet [one colour only..GREY] side by side model..no fridge slide..Lockable..no holes to be drilled in floor etc..The price..wait for it..$330.00
Sounds too good to be true Other members of the OTHER forum have bought them and have said they are a bargain..I ordered mine today..You can't make the for that price I hope they are all right..just thought I would let others know seeing there hadn't been a post about them.. The company is called Red Desert Phone No. 1300131271
Regards Greg g......No affialition with the company..all care but no responsibility eh!

Hi all, I have just picked up my set of drawers, unpacked the 5 boxes and taken the cardboard to the recycling centre..They look pretty good to me,mind you i havn't seen any of the original ones on the market.
I will have to investigate a fridge slide I think you can buy an engel one
however I have a liemack fridge and the engel might not be wide enough iwill have to do some research.I will probably make one myself
anyone got any ideas or plans for a slide.I hope every one else likes their drawers when the get them..Regards greg g

Steve,

I have a set to suit Toyota 4 Runner - 2 draws and fridge slide. They could be modified to suit other vehicles. I now own a 2002 defender and the storage area really limited to "one" large draw. It seems a shame to cut them up. If your interested $800.00 or there abouts. I think they retail for nearly $2000.00 now.

Telephone 03 55611367 or 0418 355 303 or post reply.

Tom

Thanks Greg I was going to buy a tool box for my new camper trailer but couldn't wait another 5 weeks for new trailer so I bought one without toolbox( _$280.00) and bought a set of roolerdraws in witch I can store all my recovery gear instead . I might even buy a second set as draws for my tent trailer kitchen. Many Thanks Kevin

Yes I am the first Kevin. The box says 21kg net each draw, there are 5 boxes in the kit . 2 draws, 1 top, 2 must have the tracks and frame in them. Yes I think they will be adapital to other vechiels , I think the draws are 1000mm Long x 500mm wide x 200mm high. I am thinking of putting a 2nd set in my campertrailer for my pull out kitchen( eg 500+500 =1000 wide pluss the track) so I will need say 40mm each side and in the middle. as long as you have the room they should bee ok for other cars. Have fun save money Kevin

I had made my own, but not as good as these, if you cant afford them, then make some, its not that hard.

Just go to a few clubs and see what people have and measure up to see what you want in yours.

I now have to incorperate a 60ltr plastic water tank into this one for $300, I got one, turns up today!, they just called to tell me its in!

Another How-To...

Well guys it seems even those with limited mechanical ability and
even less tools can get some things done on their 4WD.

Fitted the el cheapo draws over the weekend to the GQ wagon without
too much trouble.

To maybe help those that haven't done the fitting yet here are a
couple of tips.

This was done on a seven seater. It is a tight fit between the wheel
arches.

Basically following the instructions with the kit the following mods
may help.

Remove third row seat and rear locking plate. Fill the 3 locking
plate bolt holes (plugs or sikaflex)

Trim the drivers side tab on the draw base plate no 2 to clear the
rear of the wheel arch trim.

Use the rear tie down points bolt holes to fix base plate no 2 - need
to drill new holes in plate. (I didn't use the plastic spacers
provided as I had adequate clearance from the floor with the mounting
strips.)

Remove the third row seat belt holding bolts in wheel arches. Fill
the bolt holes (flush plugs or sikaflex)

Relocate the roller bearing that fouls with the wheel arches on each
side.

Use the front bolt holes of the third row seat mount to attach base
plate 1 (again no plastic spacers) and redrill 3, 4 and 5 to suit.

Cut down bracket 9a to clear the wheel arch.

Cut down bracket 8a to clear the wheel arch. I also trimmed the top
sections of 8a and 8b to fit the LHS of vehicle.

This is where I got fussy and wanted the cover 13a to be at the rear
to provide access to the jack so I placed the cover flush to the rear
and repositioned bracket 8b to pick up the front of the cover and
provide the mounting point for a new piece I made up to fit the gap
left forward of the cover.

Measure in from the locating holes in 3 and 5 and trim the outside of
the deck 12a and 12b to fit the rear shape. You will have to
reposition and shorten the load rails on the LHS deck.

As a final touch I cut a section out of covers 13a and 13b to fit
around the 3rd row seat belt retractors (too much of a pain to
remove).

When all screwed down the result is a tidy professional looking fit
with no additional holes drilled in the vehicle.

As a word of warning watch the edges on some of the steel as it can
be sharp and the oil film on some parts make them slippery and I have
the cuts to prove it.

Additional tools ran to a small angle grinder (cutting disc), jigsaw,
trimming knife, glue, drill and a couple of drill bits to suit.

Have fun.
