PDF project file.

This is a weekend project I did to outfit my truck with cargo drawers.
I found a deal at Home Depot during the summer for some cabinet grade birch plywood and cut it to size and used screws, brads and drawer hardware.

I finished it off with marine epoxy and then carpeted.

Nice! Spill kit? Road Hazard? Are you a FF? or just a good Boy Scout and always prepared? Looks like a lot of the same ‘stuff’ i carry in my personal vehicle and fire truck!

Thanks guys!

Dennis – Mainly just prepared. I do a lot of exploring on forest service roads so want to make sure I have what is needed. But I am also part of my counties volunteer HAM for the DEM.

Very nicely done and a great idea. One can always use more storage space in an SUV.

That’s a great idea! I love to keep my car impeccably clean, but there are a few things I like to always carry with me (my paramedic bag, a shovel, sleeping bag, fire fighter reflective coat, water bottles, and some tools). I really like this idea to be able to have an organized space to stow things while still making the vehicle look stock and clean! I might have to build something like this. It would be great in my Outback, but I’m buying a WRX next summer when I go active duty…maybe a hinged lid with gas springs instead of drawers…

Todd,

Fabulous! If I make one for my SUV, it will double the car’s value!

does it interfere with the spare tire access at all?

Thanks everyone!

@paul – not really – the access to drop the tire is a hole in the bumper that you insert the tool through.
I can lift these cases up pretty easy though.

Ultimately I’m getting a new rear bumper and will hang the spare off of that.

It looks perfect. I would think it’s almost a factory build. Great job.

Hello Todd, I just got a Xterra to use for a team car and was looking for a design for rear storage cabinet for it. I am really impressed with your design. Do you have any design instructions as to how I could do them same thing for mine? Thank you for posting it.
