How much would it be without the "tales"?

$11k seem steep to anyone else?

I recently purchased a drawer system from Front Runner Outfitters. I was so excited to order it but it came with some struggles. First of all was the cost of shipping. To ship it freight to my work cost almost $200. I emailed Front Runner to ask if they had any sales coming up to offset the cost and they said no. I then tried to see if anyone was headed down to LA to pick it up. A week or 2 later I looked online again and the price of the drawers went up but shipping went down. I then called Front Runner to see if they would honor the old price and they said no. At this point I was getting a little annoyed with them and looked more into the ARB drawers but in the end it was about the same price and I just liked the more custom look of the Front Runner drawers. So I ordered them and had them shipped to my work along with the fridge slide. Good thing my work has a fork lift.

Front Runner says it takes about 15 minutes to install because of an issue with one of the drawers sticking it took me about 3 hours to put them in and I wasn't close to being done. After everything I'm finally done and they look great.

I made a mount for my power tank.

The big problem with these drawers are these nuts. They keep popping out.

The fridge slide was hard because the drawers are so long you can't reach the back without taking off the front panel.

Barron,

That looks AWESOME - I love it. I think I may try to build something at some point, but I really like the clean design of those drawers. It just seems to be a major pain in the butt to install. Do you think they are worth the price?

Honestly I don't think they're worth the price. But if thats what you want than thats what it's going to cost. I do love it though and I'm very glad I have it.

I guess you have no choice at this point huh? To late to return. LOL. Sorry. I know the feeling. But we can always use that idea and build from there.

I wouldent want to return it anyway. I really do like them and Front Runner is a good company. They were easy to get a hold of when I was having issues and I do think it would be a great idea to improve upon for you pfab. You're going to have your hands full making LR3 bumpers and drawers. LOL

Yeah. That's just the half of it. I got almost 4 builds to get on. Two or three tire carriers and a few bumper and sliders. Then I got my own truck that just broke. That can wait.

Like David, I've considered building my own. I know I could do it and make it look OK, but it would never turn out as good as what you've got. Just have to weigh the costs and quality of the Front Runner vs the savings and time of building my own.

I'd love to see it in person one of these days.

Oh, I didn't realize you were taking spare-tire carrier orders. ;-) I was considering a spare-tire carrier from Voyager, but I got some feedback from a few other LR3/LR4 folks the latch they use is pretty bad. Plus, I am not sure I want my rear parking sensors to go crazy everytime I put it in reverse.

Do you install on LR4s?

Not to hijack Barron's thread, but I am wondering if it's possible to feed the wiring from the roof rack to the back of the truck (i think there is a path inside) out to the engine. Might be a pain in the a$$ to feed the wires though. More and more I am thinking conduit tubing, though it may not look so clean.

Yeah the LR3-4 have some after market add on issues. Not much to add on without looking like a mess. But if there's a will there's a way. I haven't built any carriers for LR3-4 but I am willing.

Hmmmmmm......... I may be willing to have you use my LR4 as a template! :-)

I think my next modification, beside the lights, is the ARB front bumper. I was going to order through Cerrone's, but decide to go with 4 Wheel Parts in San Jose. I talked to a guy there for a while and he seemed extremely well versed and they are a certified retailer.

Nice. I would love to take on a new truck. I guess you could say I have worked on every brand of rover now. Well I was offered to build sliders for a FreeLander but the guy never followed through with it.

Freelander? That's like the CRV of Rovers. Just mask it off, spray it with some plasti-dip, and tell him it's a pair of sliders. All good.
