DIY Drawer System

I mentioned the other day that I have made my own drawer system, well here it is. My driving aim was to design a system that got rid of the dreaded ammo boxes and made everything readily available. I used a wooden base with two fridge sliders on it. A 40 litre one for my fridge and a 80 litre one fo...

Re: IS ALL OF THIS STILL NECESSARY ON 3.0D ??

Re: What's wrong with this picture?

I have seen this before it happened on a cruiser, we did much the same as you. So this does not relate to only patrols. I carry spare complete valve stems just in case, I fitted a TPMS and these have alloy stems and I am worried I will break one on a trip on rock or something like that.

Re: Patrol front bumper available

Don't dump your bumper I once gave my navara back bumper away and regretted it later. When I was selling it everybody wanted the standard bumper.

Re: my patrol got a winch and new bbar

For interest, does anybody know what is the biggest size winch you can fit in a standard bumper? I also see the patrol manual shows a factory fitted winch as an option. Pity we don't get that option here is Sa.
