Nice work JZiggy! I do like the idea of using the plastic bins, really a pretty cost effective alternative to the Heavy Duty Drawers. Please share it us when your done!

Not sure why i'd just make that up but here you go

I assure you, they fit, but only because the front of the platform is open enough for them to slide forward a tad. Those and the hi-lift jack(which had to be trimmed) fitting in there are the only reason i went this route.

I contemplated such a platform too and the considerations such as headroom, etc. Once I realized the space needed, I figured that I could make-do with the popular rear passenger side storage mod seen here...

storage compartment mod



and by making use of the large space between the rear frame rails (spare removed, with cross-member). 18" tool bag and fluids:



Not needed per se, but I'm now about to make use of available space on the other side:



Thinking of an SLA motorcycle battery there...
is that a fuel tank in there too...

Yes, a little over 4 gallons. I can fit a portable one gallon can down there too.
As I recall, the tank is about 36" long (between frame rails), I think 6" diameter.

Looks like I began that project on page 50:

TonyB66's Ownership -> Build Thread (2000 Limited)

Sort of like a rear skid plate (3/16" steel)...



For my needs, quite happy with how it turned-out...

After having 2 side by side drawers for a few years, I recently built this instead. Better suits my needs and gives the fridge a home.

Matt, like your setup. Looking to build something very similar. Is your base "plate" just plywood? How did you mount the fridge slide to the base? I'm concerned about the weight of the fridge when full and the stress this will put on the base when its fully extended. Thanks!

My base plate is just plywood. Same Plywood I used everywhere else - 1/2" birch.

The fridge slide is made out of some lengths of aluminum and everyday drawer slides. It's screwed directly into the base plate.

Going on a little trip this weekend and it'll be the first time using this set up. I'm hoping, and somewhat expecting, everything to go well. The slides for the fridge are rated for 200# so that shouldn't be the fail point.

Noticed also. Nice. If I may, I'd humbly recommend a magnet bottle cap catch.
