As the title says im looking for the best place to get some draws made up for the back of my Ranger dual cab, prices seem to differ greatly from place to place and most 4x4 shops send them to someone else to get done.

I have made my own twice now in a ranger.. Out of timber.. Cost about 300 bucks for the first lot and 150 for the second lot.. Depends alot on what you want and if you have the time..

Started like this

Cheers for that mate thats looks good! i actually have had a go at it before on my Ranger but it ended up pretty heavy. I have had some quotes up to $2500!! so i think ill have another go and see if i can make a lighter version.

Have a look at Dunn & Watson online

They do some ready made drawers that are fairly light weight (metal) etc.

I just made some for the back of the camper trailer and bought heavy duty runners from them

if u want to keep it light u can use ali square tube for the frame then put some light ply or something on to cover it.

Ironman do a generic off the shelf set of a drawers.

Gumtree u can stumble upon a generic set for $1200 if ur lucky then built the bits around them to finish it off. Just make sure the drawer runners are heavy duty and that they pull out ALL THE WAY.
