Default 4WD Supacentre Rear Drawers

Hey guys,

Has anyone contemplated trying to fit the 4WD Supacentre Rear Drawers to their WK2?

Besides the rear wheel storage issue, I think it could be possible to "replicate" the RV Solutions reear drawers with gas struts?

What do you guys think?

A person over on the JeepGarage forum (post #4603) has done exactly that. Used the smallest version of the Titan drawers, which seem to fit perfectly, and used an actuator to raise and lower the drawers. Looks like he has built a frame and a floor as well to accomodate.

The biggest problem that I found, as I was looking at doing the same thing, but was persuaded by others not to, was the extra weight of the drawers. They weigh 70kg alone, and then you still have to add a frame for the hinge to attach to, the actuator (or struts), and a floor... your looking at almost 80-90kg of dead weight before loading anything.

Other things to be mindful of is the height of the roof and the size of your fridge. If you have a big fridge on top of the drawers you might find you don't have the height. If you do have the room for it then you'll probably loose half your vision out the back. Not a deal breaker but something to be mindful of.

I've gone the same concept but I'm building my own drawers out of aluminium to save on weight. I'm having the fridge mounted to the floor and either one or two drawers stacked next to it. I've built a frame for the floor and it's hinged with the same actuator the other guy used to lift it. I have the Waeco CDF 35 and with it attached directly to the floor and as close to the tailgate as possible, it's possible to open it up from the tailgate window rather than opening up the whole tailgate. The floor still hinges up high enough to get the tyre out without removing the fridge. The height of the fridge is lower than the stock cargo cover too, so can be hidden from prying eyes.

Hope the information helps

Ive ordered the 900mm x 1000mm ones for delivery in April. I mount my fridge behind the drivers seat and the 100amp hour battery on the floor behind the seat. I will muck around with lifting the draws if possible for access to the shit load of room under that floor space but will mount the spare wheel on the roof when touring / off road.

Very interesting. I love the idea of the actuator.

I've got them, very useful, no actuator no floor mount just straps holding them down. I'll get a chance soon hopefully to take pics and post them here. Weight doesn't bother me it's only 70 kgs plus stuff you would want to carry anyway.

This is my long distance Offroad setup. Like when we moved from Perth to Sydney or off road for more than a few days. Works really well, is quite heavy though.

Hi they look great, I have been thinking of getting these. Do you have a photo of how you strapped them down. Did you do that so you could pull them out to access the spare?
Would the 4WD supacentre kings fridge fit hight wise do you think, what model fridge is the one in the pic. Thanks
