Why bother when all you need is 8 roller bearings (4 per side) and some 20 or 25 mm square tubing or even "C" channel attached to the side of the _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx for runners.

Most of the "good" name cargo drawers use that system, and work well.

Have recently installed some dawers in my "Surf" and that's the way they are setup.

Hi Rod, it's just that every so often we get someone posting who is looking for a supplier of this type of system... I agree with the roller bearing system and will most probably use it when the time comes, as I get the bearings for free...

G'day Blue

I was going to make-up my own set of _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx and was looking for some slides as per your link then found I was running out of time so went for purchased option.

After doing some research on the web I discovered most were using bearings and thought " why didn't I think of that". Bearings, less moving parts,stronger etc,etc.
If one bearing fails, easy enough to replace...

I've made my own roller bearing sliding _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx for my troopy. I have a document with drawing & pics of how it was done. Send me your email address privately if you are interested in obtaining a copy of the document. Sparky

Same as that, Troopy. I can't get through either.

Can you please email me some details on the roller set up at:

leslowe@iinet.net.au

Thanks,

Bilbo

Blue,

Thats a great price. I bought identical slides locally for $42 a pair last year, but these work out at $8 a pair. Looks like I'll be slipping some extra _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx in the back of the truck :-))

Cheers
Phil

HI everybody

Sorry for the delay but you know....EASTER.

Dont have pics of my own drawer roller systems but if you go to this site it gives a good set of pics of how the rollers are setup, etc.
They are fitted to a Hikux Surf (same as my 4by) but with a few mods will just about fit any vehicle.

Site Link

(Thanks to Ozrunner from wwww.toyoyasurf.asn.au for supplying them.)

Cheers
Rod
