      the frame of the drawer system with ball bearings for the drawer slides installed.

      iron for easy removal. you can see the t-nuts i used to bolt the bearings in place.

      i used old skateboard bearings for the drawer slides. they were free and can handle a lot of weight.

      I used 1×1 square tubing for the drawer slide.

      the drawer and the top sheet installed.

      the drawer with dividers and a lockable handle (the handle is meant for truck boxes)

      right forward hatch where the second battery now resides.

      the back left hatch. perfect size for a tent or sleeping bags.

      i had to route out the edges of the top sheet where the wheel-wells curved up.

      the truck box lock from the back.

      the frame after using thompson’s water seal.

      retrofitted a toyota tacoma with a bed and drawer system for climbing and adventuring
