I'm interested in constructing a storage system in the back of my Rodeo ute and was wondering if anyone has any tips or ideas on the best way to go about it.

Hi,

I have the same ute. I am about to contruct a rear false floor/shelf out of that square aluminium tube with plastic corner joiner stuff. I have no idea what it is called but I'm sure some here will know.

I'm making it to fit around my 80L Waeco fridge which sits on the LHS accessed through the side lift up window of the canopy and high enough to slide those big plastic containers with wheels from Bunnings under it. Which is lower than the height of the tray wall.

Nothing amazingly flash but will mean I will no longer have to unpack the ute when ever I want something at the bottom of the pile so to speak.

that 'square aluminium tube with plastic corner joiner stuff' you are reffering to Utemad is called 'cubelok' ( i think that is the spelling) .. available from Capral or Aluminium Specialties ..

Hi Martin,

Member Geocacher has instructions on how to build a set for his Courier, Should apply to any ute back though. Find his profile and check his web page, you can download a set (about 20 pages, excellent detail).

I too wil build a set, one day.

I highly recommend the plans by Dave Jones (Geocacher). Just finished building a set for my Hilux which are based substantially on his plan. Turned out terrific if I say so myself. Cost about $600, fully carpeted (marine carpet), inside and out. They take a bit of time and some handyman skills, but not too difficult. Took me about 50 to 60 hours of work, but well worth it.

The bought ones (Black Widow and Outback) will cost a bit over $2,000 fitted and I reckon mine are just as good. A bit more storage space as they are custom made for the ute, but a bit heavier as the main construction is plywood with steel rails and supports.
