Just returned from Sydney Town after having my new storage drawers fitted by Stuart(Thanks to GONE BUSH thread no 66762)
Stuart is designing a 30 litre water tank to go under the shelf on the high side ,a battery holder to go under the low side and a shelf to replace the single seat on the low side rear. This shelf will be the same height as the rear drawers allowing a 6" 2" bloke(me)to lay out his swag..I have ordered all of this and if they are of the same quality as his drawer system,I will be very happy.

It is the same as the one on GONE bush's thread.
When all the other stuff is fitted I will take some photos and get my 5 year old grandson to show me how to post them on this thread LOL.

I'm not trying to be a smart-a**e here, but how much did the drawer set weigh? Given that the LC 200 payload is less than the previous model, weight could become an issue, especially once you've filled the drawers with useful stuff.

I know the drawers I had fitted to our Disco 3 were almost 80Kg !!!!

Cheers

Russ.

Russ,

Valid point. The drawers we manufacuture are 40 kg.

Weight is a very important issue.

Cheers,

Jim.

I have looked at the installation in Stuarts own vehicle and can attest to the quality...will be installing them myself once I get approval from the Minister of Finance.

Costwise, they are cheaper than all the big name brands...by quite a bit, but I suggest you contact Stuart for that info...., he may decide to put the price up with so many orders coming in????

And Russ, the LC200 payload, while not being as good as I would have hoped, is about the same as the LC100 and..., I'll say it yet again, is a lot better than the venerable Patrol, at least in VX & GXL form and about the same in Sahara model.

The drawers weigh approx 10 k more than the seats. The useful stuff goes in any way and the drawers stop it all from rattling around and make it easer to find things.I beiieve it is money well spent.
SWMDO has agreed to go on a diet to compensate for the extra weight.LOL
