Hi all,

Im keen to see your overland/ 4x4 set ups for some inspiration.

Photos and tips of your middys would be great!

Cheers!

Not a middy but SWB, this was the original layout, sizing it around some commonly available plastic bins made it an easy build & it worked great. I was lucky to have some waterproof HDF panels to build it with, not sure how easy that stuff is to find now.



Recovery gear storage & a cheap thermoelectric cooler built into the front.



Then the 2017 rebuild when I installed a proper fridge:





Deep cycle AGM battery sits in where the old cooler was:

Early version 1, 2008:

front compartment for (2) 6" drivers and a 10" sub. Second compartment a dedicated 12V gel cell and power distribution. Rear drawer.






Version 2, 2019/2020 - still not finished, but close... :

Pull out Drifta kitchen, floor level fridge on slide


lots of space in the side box


up front, one top loader, one front loader. I messed these up and can't put the seats back from full upright :doh:
They'll be modded then the lids put on.

1988 BJ74. The box is a Weatherguard "PACK RAT" model 308-3 48Lx39.75Wx9.5H. They now offer one that's 4 inches taller and I would have opted for that if it existed when I got this one. 338-5 | Pull Out Storage | WEATHER GUARD
It's heavy, really heavy, but damn tough. And, it fits the truck floor dimensions like it was custom-built. Not cheap, not custom, but very acceptable in my view.
Note the drawer handle was added by myself as the supplied handle would have interfered with the rear doors closing.
