    I've posted this before but here's what I build for people. The slot for the winger is a sliding pullout for access to things way up on the front. I put locks on all the drawers. All drawers are lined at the bottom with indoor/outdoor carpeting. The high section on the right side was to accommodate a water tank and pump.

    Mary, that is a cool set up. A drawer system like that would be just what I need for my minivan. Thanks for sharing.

    What is the material? Is it painted plywood or MDF or...? Just curious. Always looking at different things that I can incorporate in my own boxes.

    Believe what is being called "puck board" is High density polyethylene board.

    Nice storage box. Also good ideas/suggestions from all. I've been kicking around designing a box from my truck and its good to hear other's ideas. Thanks!

    Yes, I believe puck board and HDPE are the same thing. When I googled puck board I get lots of hits for Alberta. Guess it is a Canadian thing!

    I did find this on http://www.northernplastic.com/index...ross_reference, not sure if it will come through here:

    Products:
    Northex™ - HDPE
    Marine Board, Arena Board, Staple Discs, Multi Track, Envirocap

    Trade names:
    Symsheet®, Boatboard®, Starboard®, Colorboard®, Polycarve, Resinol®, Ripolen, Spartec, Densitec, Sanalite, Tuff Sheet / Puck Board

    Applications:
    Cutting boards, swim grids, arena liners, silo liners, chemical tanks, signs, boat parts, barn wall liners, storage bins

    Not sure if this helps, but it gives some names. Do you have a "plastics" place near you? I used a 1/4 inch sheet. Still thrilled with my storage box. Doesn't take much to please me.

    Thanks for all the pictures, folks. Impressive! Any ideas for those of us who have Bumper Boys and not wingers?

    TIA.

    I tried to PM but I just came across this picture while doing a Google search for drawer units. I see this is a older post hopefully this message gets thru ?
    If you still build these please contact me @ nicksnwsf@gmail.com. I'd like to talk to you about getting one

    Thanks

    Someone built a storage box that goes in the back seat of a truck when you take back seats out. Can you post with spec

    I custom built these for the extended cab portion of a Chevy diesel 2500.
