Advise on building a custom cargo box in Jeep.

Hey guys. I recently started a small business on the side doing mobile auto repair. I have seen people build sliding drawer systems out of wood in truck beds before and thinking of doing something similar but taller in the back of my Jeep. Just wondering if any of you guys have built anything similar in the past. Just trying to get a few ideas. It would be nice to have a few organized drawers and a cabinet for tools in the back that I could lock but from the outside just looks like a black cover behind the seats. Thanks as always for any and all advice, tips, and tricks!

I just keep my tool kit in the back of the Jeep. It has drawers in it. I should probably try and find a cargo cover so I can hide it, but I'm cheap and lazy. It's taken me a month just to order a $40 muffler to replace the exploded one.

Thanks guys! I am thinking maybe doing the conventional two tray bottom and maybe a second level with another deep drawer on one side and a cabinet door on the other. I'm playing around with some drawings. I'll let you know what I come up with.
