Am keen to hear from anyone who has made their own fridge slide as price of $400 seems pretty dear to buy one. I have a Chescold fridge / freezer and a 1999 Hilux dual cab. Am looking at mounting the slide to the tray (have tray liner) adjacent to dual battery box. Fridge is very big but works fine with the Rotronics MH 10 system. Need prices or plans for slide componentry.

Better do a search Hems as Crazie did a step by step photographic directions process about two months ago. Looks very professional too. Crazie is a member and it is easy to do the search for his posts if not the article.

I made one the other day. I bought a Hafele double extension runner rated for about 160kg when closed and about 80kg fully open. You can deal with Hafele direct on 07 33441533 and they are helpful (they also have a good website). It cost about $90 incl of delivery within 24 hrs and another $30 for scrap angle and aluminium chequer plate. It only took me about 500 hours (only joking but felt that way).

We've just finished building our own fridge slide. Not too difficult. Slides from local shop, 3mm checkerplate and some scrap angle. Works a treat and cost $200. Our fridge is the same as yours.

Done my own just last week.

Folded out of Galvo sheet with 33mm mount rail as slides and bought some 22mm bearings as runners.

Easy to do and cost me $35 for all materials.

I am a sheety by trade and that part helps though as others have done using angle and flat bar they work just as good.
email me and I can send some pics
