    I used accuride and knape and Vogt HD locking slides for my build up. They have performed flawlessly so far. The accuride slides the whole system out and the KV slides move the fridge and upper drawer out sideways.

    Yes Sir...and thank you.

    I really need to check the balance and payload of the drawers one more time. I want to fit a recovery rope and some D shackles in there, so I just need to revist the contents for old time sake.

    Default 4Runner set up

    here is mine in the new-old 2nd gen t4r.

    3/8" plywood
    1x8 pine
    turnbuckles and coated screws

    the front has an open space for spare parts, axles and such. rear slide outs. no drawer slides, just wood on wood. still need to build another drawer for the other side. i "might" add sum cutting board strips later but not worried at the moment. the drawers are 31" deep. the space up front is 11" deep. i also reserved the triangular space just behind the seat. it is a perfect spot to hide a certain sumthin sumthin. i will add some padding in that spot next.

    Default F-150 liner/drawer system.

    With some inspiration from some the many amazing ideas here on this thread. I designed this for the back of my 2012 F150. I wanted organized storage, and a nice flat platform for my dogs when traveling. The line is constructed using 3/4 Birch plywood and only had access to a circular saw and jigsaw to get the pieces cut. I'll be looking for a table saw to build the drawers.

    A quick Sketch-Up drawing of the idea in my head. I want something that slides in and out so I can still have full use of the box with the washable plastic liner.

    Test fitting the bottom and front pieces.

    Test fitting the side pieces.

    Initial dry assembly. The blocks are just there to square the sides and hold the bottom together before the dividers and top platform are installed.

    Installed in the truck after day 1. Notice the notches cut for the canopy clamps. Right now this keeps the liner in place as the clamps keep it from sliding and lifting.

    Day 2 installation of the dividers and the top platform. The smaller end holes will have 2' drawers for my tire chains, hitch, tow strap and shackles. The 2 larger ones are 6' long and will hold tools and other miscellaneous gear.

    Final install of the liner in the back of the truck.

    Just storing a few items in the drawer holes until I can get the drawers completed.

    I'll post and update when I get the drawers complete and installed.

    I chose to go with the high walls for the sake of my dogs. I wanted a 'box' for them to be in while I travel, if i take a corner and they are standing they won't slide down in the crevices down the sides. I'm also going to attach a fire extinguisher and flashlight mount to the sides, and maybe someday Ill work in a small electrical panel with a 12V outlet (for fans, heaters and other 12v accessories) and switches for interior lighting in the canopy.
