Alu-Cab Drawer System for 2005+ Toyota Tacoma
After a trip to Cape Town this past winter and some time spent in the bush with an Alu-Cab kitted Ranger it became obvious what we were missing in our Tacoma builds here in the states. An aluminum drawer system, ultra-light in weight but built tough to take on anything Africa or beyond can throw at it. After months of engineering and hard testing, we feel what we created is the ultimate drawer system for your Toyota Tacoma.
All – Aluminum Drawers
Each systems starts with a laser cut aluminum housing which features cut outs to minimize weight in non-critical areas while still retaining maximum strength. The drawer bodies are too laser cut and bent for precision, tig welded and lined in marine carpet. Each drawer also features a stainless steel latch with built in lock to keep items secure and dual spring pins that allow the drawer to be removed without tools.
Sealed Roller Bearings
Each Alu-Cab drawer system features 24 sealed roller bearings that will not only work well when new, but will survive the rigors of off-road travel for years to come. Each bearing is also individually serviceable if ever requiring attention so your system never needs to be retired.
Tacoma Top Plate
These Toyota Tacoma bed drawers include a CNC machined top plate from 12mm marine Grade Baltic Birch coated in a non-slip polyuria coating. This not only gives the system a clean appearance, but allows for additional lockable storage beneath the surface around the drawers. This area can also be used to mount an universal 50l water tank. Additionally the 12mm top plate is the perfect blank canvas to mount your fridge slide or any accessories you choose.
Being Tacoma specific we also developed a bolt in mounting system that requires no drilling into your truck. Just install four simple brackets to your OE tie downs and the turnbuckles secure the system to your load bed.
Not only is aluminum construction strong, but it is much lighter than wood or steel. Alu-Cab Toyota Tundra bed drawers are nearly half the weight of wood and steel systems on the market, allowing you to carry gear for the total weight of other’s systems empty.
Water Tank (optional)
Both 1230mm and 1450mm versions have a front stroage area where a 50l water tank can be mounted. Because build outs vary, mounting and plumbing is left to the installer to tailor to the build.
