Ok collective, first off let me say thank you for the great information and inspiration in this thread. I'm a complete n00b when it comes to any advanced woodworking. I do have the tools and knowledge in general construction but no experience in cabinet construction, other than making a box.
I'm working on plans for my Jeep XJ drawer, frig storage unit. Question is, where do I find a double pull out slide for my stove/prep tray combination? I have seen several units with a pull-out flat surface then a pull out under that holding a stove. That's my ideal set up, but for the life of me can't find any information on where to purchase or how to install. Google has not been my friend.
I'm also looking for the slides to hold my Yeti 45 cooler on a slide out.
The system in this video is the unit I am wanting to copy. Any help on sources?

Yeah, built mine with 3/4" plywood and covered it with Deck Restore 10x by Rustoleum. Cheaper and easier than bedliner, but looks the same. I didn't use the Restore thick roller, just a medium sized paint roller. Covered the top with flex seal, but will be removing that because I like the 10x better.Has anyone built (or is there documentation somewhere) a truck bed drawer that is weatherproof (exposed to elements) and made out of wood/mdo?
I want to build one similar to TruckVault but would love to get some ideas before I dive in.
So far, I am thinking the following:
* LxWxH: 6x4x1
* 3/8 or 1/2 MDO for outside shell
* 72 inch Accuride sliders for the 2 drawers.
* carpeted drawers
* Bedlined exterior.
Nice. Have you had any issues with water intrusion?Yeah, built mine with 3/4" plywood and covered it with Deck Restore 10x by Rustoleum. Cheaper and easier than bedliner, but looks the same.

I bought a similar drawer set up, I think some distributors in the US have them as "van cargo drawer", probably not as robust as those Titans, but I have had no problems throwing my yeti cooler fully loaded on top, and heavy oilfield parts.The Titan rear drawers seem like a great value - Titan Rear Drawers. They have different sizes, too. Unfortunately, I contacted the company (4WD Supacentre) and they don't ship to the US and I can't seem to locate a different distributor. The price and features are great, so I'd be very interested in getting a set for my Xterra.
