    Construction has begun on the UBER LC storage system.

    Goals:

    - Deck height to create flat load floor with mid-row seats folded.

    - Aux fuse box mounting

    - Organize tools and spares I now carry in a pelican 1610

    - SubWoofer Enclosure that doesn't interfere with cargo load

    - Mounting platform for ARB Fridge

    - Mounting / Integration of DC Inverter

    - Mounting / Integration Air compressor

    - Something to Mod on my 100


    Base Dimensions: 42"w 40"D 10.5"H
    Base Material: Cabinet Grade Maple Plywood 3/4"
    Drawer Size ID approx.: 18"W 26"D 8"H
    Drawer Latches: Allegis 275021-90 http://www.allegiscorp.com/DisplayP...mp_4.jsp&cat=Single-Point Compression Latches
    Drawer Slides: KV 28" 175# Full Extension +1"
    Finish: Clear laquer and Toyota Gray carpet to match the LC interior carpet. I want it to have a factory look.

    In this design I will be adding hinged side wings that will flip up for side storage. The wing storage will be capped at each end with supports in the channel. Nothing new, we've seen this a hundred times.

    I'm waiting on a couple of parts and some time to get back. Updates to follow.

    Threads like these make me wish I had a nicer garage and more tools. One day I will make a set of these...one day...

    Looks great so far, Rob.

    Very cool. Keep us posted Rob. Any plans to add "wings" to cover the sides?

    Which rear springs are you using? I assume you'll need to go with the heavy duties? Looks great btw!

    My springs are stock at this time.

    This drawer system will weigh less than the third row seats (90lbs).

    It's not the weight of the actual drawer system, but instead the stuff you fill it up with. ;)

    Your drawer feature list mirrors mine identically, very interested to see the final product. I have some sketches and need to get off my arse and start building!

    Craftsmanship looks awesome!

    Just wondering for my own purposes - has anyone ever done a 1/2 drawer set wherein you left 1/2 of the fold down 3rd row? How would you secure it? Just wondering as I must have 1/2 for family capacity.

    How do you feel about the subs firing towards the back of the seats? There's no reflection. I can tell a huge difference when I have my 8w7 firing against the seats vs. firing towards the tailgate. Thus being the reason I haven't built my drawers yet.

    Should be just fine. There is about a 2" gap to the mid row seat bottoms. I'm installing a modest system so If I feel frisky I can roll the mid seats forward.

    Your going dual JL audio 8's? I have a box for them if you want them! Unless you are making it so your subwoofers are attached to your drawers and not removable. Looking to sell the dual 8" box because I will be going wit 3 8w3's
