I did something very similar. My sides/front/back are made from 3"x1"x1/8" angle aluminum that I mitered using a compound miter saw with a wood blade:Nice.
I would love to see how you attached the drawer sides and bottoms. L brackets?
Fireball, I can't wait to see at you come up with for the 40, you should create a thread for us to watch along.Thanks guys. These projects are fun!
I own a construction and renovation company so we have a pretty decent little woodshop where myself and one of my guys do little projects like these between our renovation work.
Another member of the local Land Cruiser club just dropped off his 40 series truck for a rear cargo box so that is next on the agenda.

Mine is made with skate bearings. So far anyways.Does anyone have experience using a combination of Rollerblade bearings and square tubing to make drawer slides? I'd love to purchase some high quality slides but I likely will not be keeping my current vehicle for a long enough time to make that money well spent. Good slides seem to be the most expensive competent in a simple storage system.
