Yes it is from Tauro. Protects from stuff falling over. Eugene (Tauro owner) also built the custom fridge draw made to fit 60l NL

Yeah I have the same one. But my fridge is 80L NL so it’s a tight squeeze. But it works really well

Hi izakjbrt

Here is my current setup, i butchered a front runner drawer system and built a steel subframe bolted using the original tie down points on the patrol floor and mounted the single smaller drawer to the frame, and modified the top of the drawer.

The cargo rails ontop of the drawer are spaced to snuggly fit an ammo crate, it can stack can 4x ammo crates, cargo rails provide ample tie down points.

The fridge slide can accommodate a 85l snow master

Front runner battery box on the right bolted on its own subframe with space to accommodate compressor next to battery box.

Left is a little shelf to accommodate inverter, solar or dc charger.

I would be willing to sell this setup, or should you not be interested in buy this one i will also consider building you something similar. Dm me if you're interested.

cheers

Dude that looks freakin awesome!
I was thinking of cutting the front runner in half as well. Wish I saw this post before I bought a new fridge slide (well I did last week), to replace the absolute crap gobi x drop slide. Got a alu-cab tilting fridge slide. But I do like the idea of cutting the front runner for some more battery space and then a nice packing solution.

I'll definitely drop you a pm
