    Out of curiosity, why non-potable? Seems that potable water could serve a dual purpose in a pinch -- especially in the deep south where humidity is ridiculous.

    Haha I love the guesses. It's hose water in an antifreeze bottle. Non potable to ensure that no one drinks it before I need it. In the summer, I never hit the trail without a few gallons of drinking water. But even with that much, the supply gets thin after a full day of sharing it with thirsty friendly freeloaders. If I were depending on my drinking water to fill a low radiator, I better hope the problem occurs early in the day.

    Yeah I wasn't clear with what I meant by "dual purpose". I mean that it could be drank as a last resort if the drinking water runs out.

    Or you could always pull an Overkill and dump out the gallons of water you had at camp to "save weight" in the tow rig for the drive home. Only to have a head gasket blow just after you split off from the convoy with a broken cell phone. But I digress...

    I fully understood you. I'm just of the opinion that there is an advantage to carrying some water that friends won't drink.

I like the flip top alot more. It used to be devided in half in the inside, but it is better as one big open space.

    I built a cubby on the right wheel well for fluids, cables, flash light, things of that nature. the center section holds tools, cooking stuff for camping, and my blingbling MTX, also holds tow straps and d rings in the ammo cans, and the space over the left wheel well is so small that I made it only accesable after folding down the back seat. I also left a little space between the front of the box and the hatch to put a rifle, as not to be seen by those with sticky fingers.







    You need to put some sort of grills or covers over those subs. One slip with that shovel or ammo box and your going to punch a hole in your blinging subs

    I would venture to say that more time and precision goes into a drawer system of that caliber than your average long arm kit that sells for more than $1500.

    I genuinely hope that isn't true. Proper suspension design and performance are infinitely more complex than cabinetry.

    if their junk cabinet is more advanced than a long arm system they should be slapped twice.

    Well the design may be more complex, the construction is much easier IMO. Having seen this drawer system first hand, I feel that $1500 is a very fair price what you get. Do most people need a drawer system like that? No, but for those who need/want it, that is an extremely fair price.

    So you've actually seen this item in person then? You think it's too much, don't fawking buy it, pretty simple. I'm not buying it either because I don't need something that fancy.

    I have one like this for my tahoe exept it has a table that slides out under the drawer. It came linex-ed, has the dividers for rifles and such, will hold over a ton on top of it, and 400 lbs (buddy sitting on it) on the drawer with it open. Got it for a little over a grand shipped. It was well worth it. It has had the shit beat out of it and still slides just as well as it did when I got it.

    It is actually in my old man's tahoe now because he needed it for his business and I am not planning any trips soon. He loves the damn thing.

    Ha, I knew you'd say that and I agree with you, as long as both are being mass-produced. Pretty much everything I build is one-off, so forgive me being stuck in that mindset. Design included, I'd wager that 10,000 clayton long arm kits take less time per kit to produce than 10,000 of these drawer systems. By producing in volume you can average out the labor-intensive cost of the front-end design. That is assuming that your average LA kit isn't just slapped together randomly.

    In my first ZJ I tried a few different things.
    This was my first set up, utterly useless and if I ever rolled it, someone was gonna get killed inside.


    Set up number two involved 2 big ass rubbermaid bins. I put locks on them to keep people out and bolted them in place. I personally liked this set up. It meant 1 less passenger and gave said passenger an arm rest lol.



    In my last ZJ I tried this rack I bought for $100.


    Plan was to build a storage unit under neither with drawers but I never did.

    I modified my box setup a bit. Well, alot. I realized I didn't need such a huge ass box back there, and it could be nice to actually be able to get other stuff in the back to haul around. I also mounted my co2 on top. and you can still open the lid with the tank setup in place.

    I can still fit thre 50cal ammo cans, a tool box, a juckstand, jumper cables, a bottle of antifreeze, oil, steering, and brake fluid, a bag of air connectors and such, an airhose, and a few other little things, all in that box!

    I always thought you weren't supposed to operate CO2 when the tank is on its side?
