Rear Tuffy Box for a 110

I was looking for something like this Rear Tuffy Box but longer for a 110. Couldn't find it so I emailed them.

They can make them but need an order for at least 25 to make it worth their while and lower cost. He couldn't get an estimate on cost, but I'd expect it'd be not a lot higher than the cost of the one above.

Is anyone with a 110 interested in this kind of box? If there is enough interest, I'll go back to Tuffy and get more firm numbers.

I realize it's a long shot since there aren't many 110s here in the US, but they ship internationally too.

Count me in for one unless it's a fortune.

Ok, call me stoopid...

Isn't the rear load space in the 110 almpst the same at that in a 90? I mean the flip up seats - two on a side - fit in both of them, right?

KAA - doesn't have a 110 to measure

Why not go with this.

Pricey though.

I was thinking of those, the only problem is with the locking mechanism. Sure, if someone really wants to get in, they will, but the difference with the African Outback is the locking pin you see there looks fairly easy to get a crowbar in and snap, bend around. I may be wrong and should probably call Nathan since I haven't seen one first hand. Plus the price. yikes.

Keith, the Tuffy above stops at 30" which is 18" short of the seatbelt mounts (the realistic stopping point just short of the back seats). While I could just fill this space in, I'd like to utilize it a bit more. I plan on having an Engel on top of that 18" on one half, and dogs on the other half, making it hard to get into that space from on top. Plus more locked drawer space would be better in my mind.

I'm interested but how much are we looking at here? The african outback ones are choice but too rich for my blood. They don' seem easy to break in to in person.

I have a set of carpeted wood drawers now and they work but are far from ideal... but you can't beat the price!!

The #58 is $441. I wouldn't want to pay more than $550 for a full length unit.
thanks for the input on the AO ones.

To be honest, having owned the Tuffy, I would now build something better that suits our needs. Namely, something with thick sides (maybe aluminum), ball bearing slides with an aluminum drawer (TIG), and a thick top of marine plywood or other. You could purchase the hardware from McMaster and you would have something stronger, lighter and for less money.

I'm in if Troy is willing to make something. I assumed the tuffy unit would have ball bearing drawer glides - this is not the case?

It does. But they are kinda cheap. My boggest gripe with the unit is it doesn't have a top that can support anything.

I was wondering about the top too - perhaps a piece of checquer plate cut to size and bolted on? I was thinking of something to make a continuous floor with the fender tops. You can see I'm still just kicking the idea around in my mind...
