Finally got to building out a drawer system for my WJ from ideas on here. Still working on a few bits, but it's functional already and I love being able to slide out the stove, make coffee, and slide it back in to pack up.

I'm running tires bigger than what will fit in there for a spare so I'm thinking of maybe storing my tool set and other things I don't access often in there. And the way I have this built, if I unclip it from the tie downs it slides toward the front of the vehicle and I can get into that storage spot.

Can you advise on what sliders/rails you used and how they are holding up to some use. My coming up to-do will to build a drawer system for the cruiser.
Thanks!

They're shop fox 26" full extension. Got them from Amazon:

Holding up fine. Since I'm really only ever out for a few days at a time, and I pack like I'm still in the infantry, my loads stay light and these are having no issues at all.

Thanks! I was looking at on Zon(Amazon). I am a light packer, but def will be getting the most heavy duty I can find. I think 500Lb is the way I'm planning though. Just cause I hate stuff breaking..
Thanks KP!
