Not that i know of, except for the tuffy, but its like 700 bucks or something.

it really wasnt that hard to make, and for under 100 bucks, i cant go wrong.

decided to raptor line the box.

One plus to the ExtendaTrunk is that the lid slides all the way out, so if you have need to carry something tall you don't have to take out the whole trunk. But that homemade one is very nice - I just don't have the carpentry skills to pull anything like that off .

i agree , it would be a hell of alot better in aluminum, unfourtnently i have zero metal working skills/tools... no welder, etc.

so wood was pretty much my only option

It's fine dude. The brackets are bolted down by what the rear seat -was- bolted to, the tank skid is bolted down to the brackets, and the tank is of course strapped to the skid, and the tank AND skid are both ratchet strapped with some heavy straps around the brackets as well.

I love how nobody notices it is temporary until a fuel cell finds it's way back there. If you'd like to send me the $200-300 or whatever for it to get done right PM me and I'll give you the address

I have to say that I like what he did. I had no idea that the Tuffy slide out unit was around $700 - YIKES! The only thing I would have done differently would have been to route slots so that the dividers would be adjustable or completely removable. Otherwise, great job

i thought about doing it that way, i've got the tools, but i just liked the idea of having the little cubbies for stuff where i wanted it to be.

i have it all loaded up, really testing them 100 lb slides... they seem to be holding up just fine so far ( will we see after a weekend of wheeling )

here it is all loaded and ready to go.




and while the box weighs only about 50 pounds, maybe a bit more, - When fully loaded up, i can def. feel the extra weight in the back, but everything feels pretty tight, no shifting, or bouncing around.
