Tuffy Rear Box

Does anyone have any pictures of a Tuffy Rear Box installed in either a 90 or 110?
http://www.tuffyproducts.com/trunk/058.html
I'm considering getting one and the 1" riser to bring it level with the back of my 110 and pictures always help me make decisions like this. thanks

I've been looking at this drawer for a while now and I'm thinking of mounting it flat on the bottom and mounting a forward facing seat of some sort on top. So i'm no help at all, but I'd shure like to see pix of yours if you get one!

Jesse Ware at BWOverland was getting rid of one a while back that had been installed in a Jeep. I beleive he had reinforced it and it was still pretty flimsy. May want to give him a shout.

I have one in mine. Reinforced the top with a piece of marine 3/4" ply and a cut sheet of 5 bar. The combo makes it the same height as the wheel wells and when bolted on either side, makes it plenty strong for me to sit on. I keep my fridge and chainsaw mounted/strapped to it.

The box itself is bolted to the wheel wells.

One caution, it's heavy. Weighs in around 80 pounds alone.

Only pic I could find here.

I can take more tomorrow if you like.

David,
I measured the height of the wheel wells again tonight and see why your idea would be a lot better than the risers. I'm thinking of some kind of rubberized coating for the top because I'm tired of dog hair.

Do you have the slide lock for your Engel? If so, did you just bolt through the top of the Tuffy? I'm thinking of going that route but move the fridge closer to the back seats and sideways.

Yup, it is the slideloc, and it is thru-bolted to the top. The 3/4 ply is necessary to keep the top rigid enough to support any weight. I would think on top of that, you could cut a piece of rubber matting. But the top of the box is definitely too flimsy to support anything on it without an additional surface.

How is the side-to-side clearance? Is there space or does it just fit?

It just fits. About a 1/8" gap which you can insert a piece of lexan/polycarbonate or other suitable filler in.

I use the Tuffy rear cargo aluminum storage box (Part #054) mounted in the rear of my D90 ST...
Along w/ (1) locking Troy Smith toolbox on the wheelwell I can hold all my tools and camping gear all locked up and bolted to the vehicle.
My Fridge-Freeze 35 liter refrigerator also fits perfectly in front of the box and it is also bolted and locked securely to the vehicle.
This combination really fits well and works out great with a soft-top so you can leave your D90 parked with no top and all your gear is securely locked.
However... you can't store any gear on top of this box because it opens from the top...
