ThanksThey look nice. My only complaint is that they aren't a perfect fit in an 80. I would like them more if they were a bit wider and longer. It's understandable that they wanted to make them usable in multiple vehicles.
The 36A which measures 20" wide x 8.75" high x 36" long is $483.00 (This is the composite) The Birch system is about 2/3's the cost.Set up cost?
With a 9" tall drawer you can go 40" long and 21" wide with 2 drawers in the rear of an 80. The 4" length difference is more of an issue to me than the little bit of width.The 36A which measures 20" wide x 8.75" high x 36" long is $483.00 (This is the composite)...
40" would be cool, that's a ton of room. It would be like a mini sleeper for the kids!With a 9" tall drawer you can go 40" long and 21" wide with 2 drawers in the rear of an 80. The 4" length difference is more of an issue to me than the little bit of width.
It makes sense for AT to make these smaller as most vehicles have a smaller cargo area than an 80-series LC.
I do think that the drawers are probably the best option on the market at the moment given the price and lack of availability of the African Outback stuff.
Does anyone know if AT has the new top for the drawers yet that will better fit an 80?I talked to AT about this also, as I too wanted a fitted system. They are making a replacement top panel that matches the contour of the 80 series rear cargo area. It takes about five minutes at the most to remove the top panel of the box.
I'm sure if they get enough requests they would. The reason they are doing an 80 is they have one close by to pull the design from. I'm unsure if they have a 100 down in SoCal to make the template from.well I guess I should have asked if you know if they'll be making a replaceable top like the one that will form fit to the 80 cargo area.
