BUILT VS BOUGHT REAR DRAWERS

If you’re looking to transform your 4WD, 4×4, Ute or SUV – a good quality set of drawers in the rear will be one of the best investments you can make. They will give you extra storage, and neaten everything up – all your gear will have a place – not just thrown in the back.

 

If you’re considering building DIY rear drawers – read this article before you commit to anything! We’re going to show you the cheapest way to get quality drawers in the rear of your vehicle.

 

A few years ago – DIY rear drawers were the only cheap option for anyone looking for drawers – because all pre-made options were well into the thousands of dollars. But did you know you can get a set of Titan Rear Drawers from 4WD Supacentre and Adventure Kings for well under $450?

 

Now – before you say ‘yeah but I can build a set for cheaper’ – let’s crunch some numbers on some extremely cheap and basic rear drawers that you can build yourself.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD REAR DRAWERS

These basic drawers are a simple two drawer design – the drawers simply slide on the bottom bit of timber – no drawer runners, and no wings over your wheel arches. First of all – you will need the timber – for two drawers, a top, bottom and sides – you’ll be looking at around $170. Next – marine carpet – normal marine carpet from your local hardware store will be about $40 per metre – so you’ll need roughly $120 of marine carpet. Then you need screws, glue, and a few other small accessories like handles and locks and let’s throw in some metal edging to give it a neat look – That’s about $80. Finally $20 of nuts and bolts to fasten the drawers into the back of your 4WD, ute or SUV.  That’s $390 for a simple drawer setup – without factoring in the full weekend of work you need to put into it or factoring in any mistakes you make that need more gear purchased.

 

Did you know that you could purchase a set of high quality Titan Rear Drawers from Adventure Kings and 4WD Supacentre for around the same price (give or take $25-50) right now – and have them installed and ready to use before next weekend?

 

Titan Rear Drawers are around the same price – and much better than those simple drawers we put together (in a paragraph). For starters both drawers roll on high quality double roller bearings – so they are smooth to use and are extremely strong. They have a built-in fridge slide – If you wanted to add one of these to your DIY drawers – you’re looking at an extra $200. You can also get wings to perfectly suit many models of 4WDs (Most Patrols, Landcruisers and Prados) – or a DIY wing kit than you can use to make a set that perfectly fits your vehicle. There’s another $100 of value at least that you get with Titan Rear Drawers that you don’t with DIY drawers.

 

 

Titan Rear Drawers are fully lockable, have a tough as nails galvanised steel frame and so many more features that make them the best value for money rear drawer you can buy in Australia. And thanks to the innovative design of the galvanised steel frame – you can mount them in almost any full sized wagon 4WD, ute, and many SUVs. The mounts are adjustable so you can use pre-existing mounting points in the rear of your 4WD – meaning less drilling into your 4WD.

 

Like all the gear 4WD Supacentre and Adventure Kings sell – you’re getting the very best quality gear for the lowest price you can find. When it comes to rear drawers – Titan Rear Drawers are so cheap, you couldn’t build a set that’s close to similar quality for cheaper. We can do this because we buy in huge volumes, cut out the middle men, and work on razor thin margins – so you’re getting great quality, for such low prices. So put the tools away – grab a set of Titan Rear Drawers and go camping this weekend with your mates, loved ones and family instead of spending it sweating it out in the shed – you’ll thank us later.
