    Default Post up your drawer/storage system

    I just finished my first drawer system, however its not that great looking and doesnt hold that much, driving back to South Carolina for my father to help me with a full on cargo system with linex exterior and memory foam pad on top takin the back seats out (a reason to stop takin college kids to the freakin liqour store now)

    id like to get some ideas.

    going to be kinda tall about 9-10 inchs total. right now its at 5-6 total.

    I recently retooled my platform in the tacoma to better fit the storage containers i use and make more available room. I would highly suggest anyone with moderate woodworking skills (tablesaw access) build engineered i-beams instead of using dimensional lumber. these ibeams weigh about 60% of the 2x10's that they replaced and are much stronger. i lowered the platform and had to do a bit of custom sanding to make the platform fit nicely around the top of the wheel wells but the extra inch and a half of headroom makes all the difference in the world!

    these pictures aren't the best, i'm heading out tonight for a weekend and will take some action pictures of things buttoned up and fully expanded this weekend.










    (ps, if anyone knows how to make these show up inline instead of as links let me know!)

    Looks good!

    As you are composing the message, click on the mountain/sun icon and paste the URL into the field, click ok. Here is one of your pics..



    Hmmm, that didn't work... Here is one I host in photobucket. My first toyota... This truck was rolled by a friend years ago.


    I don't have a shell/topper for my Tacoma but was wondering if anyone has attempted to build one that is somewhat weatherproof/resistant....

    I wanted mine to be tall enough to use some Rubbermaid tubs inside of, and the top surface is just right to hold two footlockers so they don't touch the roof. My Engel has to go in another slide-out where the rear seats were.

    very nice.

    ill take a picture of mine when I get back to the truck.

    basically i wanna fill the rear end like Slees outback system, but its gonna be a sleeping platform so no bigger then 10 inchs

    also the front is going to have side drawers with removable bottoms, which means when i flip it up, the drawers turn into cubbies basically.

    if that makes any sense?
