The 100lbs is more of a usability than a structural limitation- When I fill mine with tools, jack, recovery gear, compressor and all the bags it is about 80 lbs and it's not like something is nearing a limit - it just gets too much of a PITA to pull that much on the slides while reaching over your tailgate without risking a back injury. Other than chains (real, not cable- which I put under the wings) I'm wondering what do you want to put in there that is going north of 100lbs?!?These drawers are at the top of the drawer section on my ridiculously huge spreadsheet of to-do mods. I love everything about them, especially the customization aspect, but the only concern I have with them is the 100lb drawer weight limitation. What is the limiting factor for that, and is it possible in the customization process to beef them up to be able to handle more? Also, has anyone had issues because of overloading the drawers?
To answer the second part of that question of whether you can beef them up - sure, the Reef (and KISS Drawers) have always been claimed to be "the starting point for your custom storage system" - that's one big reason they are built of super-user-mod-friendly plywood, so anyone can work on them. If you want to email me your sketches and ideas for thoughts on mods please feel free, many people do and it's always fun to see how they're being used!
