Short sidio crates arrived. Test fit in the upper cubby holes and pretty stoked. Started transferring camp/kitchen stuff and then the wee toddler got involved, so we made nearly zero progress on that yet. But excited to be bringing v2 of mimimizing chaos up to speed. I also was able to get ahold of extra extrusion and fittings from ARE so that I can get creative with lighter weight stuff up in the internal rack.

How do you like those Sidio crates? I've been getting bombarded by ads on Instagram for them. I guess in the context of "overlanding" they are not too expensive, but i had a hard time justifying the cost for around the house stuff
Very nice!!I forgot to post these when I got them (mostly) done. I still need to make drawer fronts and clean up a few details but I wanted to get at least one trip with them done to find out if I needed to make any chances before I put the work in to make them fancy.
The 25 Series from 8020. I chose the 25 because the fastener size was M6 (20 Series is only M5) and I was worried about anything smaller being too weak. However, with the way this framed up into a bombproof rigid hulk, I think I probably could have gone down to the Series 20, saved a little weight, a little money, and still been just fine. The other problem with the 25 Series is that there's fewer fastener options available for it. I was still able to get everything done, but some stuff like the lock-in-place t-nuts and the hammerhead oopsie-fix nuts aren't available.Very nice!!
Almost exactly what I want to do for my JKUR.
What aluminum extrusions did you use in your build?
