Can anyone tell me if there are any tricks when it comes to fitting a fridge slide to a Hilux 2006 SR5 with a tub liner.

Cut a sheet of ply to fit the tub and bolt the fridge slide to that.

Does the ply lift when you slide out a full fridge?

Not if it is a tight fit like suggested below.

I cheated a bit and just cut a base out of ply for the whole floor in the back and bolted my fridge slide (and the second battery box) to that.

The board is a snug fit, which I haven't bolted down at all. But seems to stay in position without any worries as I have the fridge in there the whole time, along with the battery, a heavy toolbox, socket set recovery bag etc etc so it doesn't move around at all.
That way I didn't have to worry about drilling holes in tray for the fridge slide in the right spot so it doesnt fowl up anything under it.

Sorry, on top of the tub liner or under the tub liner or you took the tub liner out?

I left the tub liner in, and put the ply on top of it.
No problems with it so far!
