Its a fairly heave ga. steel tank and this thing sits HIGH.

A skid for it should be a snap though. I will get you Brett's number, you can talk him into it

I need to get it anyway, a buddy's got a BJ70 he wants to put AC in and heard Bret put an AC system in his old BJ. A PM would be great Don.

Would love to have them protected from tree sliding too. I know you will figure some way to make that look bitchin :-). How the fuck do i do the little flip-off thingy??

subscrizzled.

this thread makes me want to learn sheet-metal skills.

carry on the awesomeness

edit: for the latch, how about something that catches from underneath the drawer/bumper? the drawer could "spring" open for a few inches so you could grab it, and it would latch shut.

its funny you say that!....thats VERY close to what I did. There is ZERO room under the drawer due to the gas tank so I latched it from the back of the drawer with a rotory latch (car door type) and spring loaded it with a fj55 hood spring . The latch is actuated via a lever at the bumper near the back pass side. works purdy trick! I will get pics up monday night after I button up the stops and catches (full open and finger saver).

Any sort of drawer glides? I don't see any but it seems to work awfully smoothly for metal on metal.

Thought the same thing... FC, did you put that UHMW (or whatever the acronym is) on the cross-members that touch the bottom of the drawer?

the UHMW on the sides ARE the guides. the two strips are 1/4" larger on top and bottom. The underside of the opening is wide open and the "guides" slide on a 1/2" wide lip (to allow debris to fall away). The top of the opening is one smoth plate from the front to the back to both work as an upper suface for the "guides" and to prevent loose objects from jambing the drawer.

The two ribs on the bottom are steel C channel and are just to stiffen the bottom of the drawer.

Don...again with the exceeding expectations bullshit :-). I can't believe how bitchin this thing is turning out. The bad part for me is that has me thinking crazy shit. For example I made a nice little find this week that should fit nicely under the hood and sent the owner a deposit.
