lol, thats my old pic. DOn't do the turnbuckles if you can help it. I ended up redoing it by mounting it to a goose gear plate system.

Although any home brew/DIY/home depot plywood system would work.

Yeah, not recommended as it can pull outwards on the sides of the drawer cabinet, which then increases the space between the rollers and the drawer, stretching it out.

can confirm, the oem turnbuckle style does not hold up to rough aggressive offroad driving

update on the drawers after being a early adopter.

When i first bought it, i have to admit i didn't like it at all because the fridge slide latch was a joke, and since it is steel construction, the contents of the drawers made a lot of sound when driving around town. I also had issues with the drawers themselves moving back and forth and clunking. Also, the wings are horrible (since they were universal at the time). However, I made some mods to fix all of it, so now I actually do like them.

Here were the fixes:
1. clunking of the drawers: I installed a magnet to the inside wall, so now the drawers would self close and keep the drawers from moving when vehicle in motion.
2. fridge slide Latch: dobinsons newer drawers have new latches that are actually legit. For me, i don't complain anymore because the crappy latches are actually dirt cheap (5.00 dollars a pop). I bought a bunch of spares.
3. Rattling of inside contents: I bought these soft/felt lined semi rigid baskets at costco used for laundry. It fit in the drawers perfectly.
4. wings are still shit, but i cut em down to size. I dunno if dobinsons finally addressed it.
5. Tables: game changer right here. Dobinsons released some stainless steel tables that don't take up any space when stored, and can hold a burner/stove.
6. crikeymike is always a pleasure to do business with.

Here are some pics a few years later:

Glad to hear it!! Those table tops are a really nice addition without any lost space.

Yeah, the wings were redone a while back, I think in 2020.
