    Gotcha, they look like Accuride slides. Used a lot of those back in my cabinet building days, if I remember correctly they are rated up to 500 lbs.

    They use no slides on the long drawers for pickups , there is a side mounted top caster at the back and some let in rollers at the front of the case and a drawer stop so it doesn't pull all the way out

    My dad has built many of those for 6 and 7 foot beds. And used them for tools. Carpenter tools. I can ask him what he used to make them tomorrow. And how to make them.

    I'm most interested in the hardware used for the drawers , I have seen a few different examples of different solutions

    Thanks

    As soon as I get my camper shell rear window frame straightened and replace the glass with plexi, I want to start building my drawers and storage system for my bed. I was thinking two long pullouts in the middle, four storage areas on either side of the wheel wells, and one long storage area up by the cab taking up the last space not taken up by the drawers. I'll draw up some blueprints this weekend. Maybe split the system into two halves so it can be taken out when the entire bed is needed.

    I like his solution for the drawers with the bearings but that eats into the drawer width by quite a bit , still pretty impressive

    True, but it only appears to decrease it by about an inch per drawer. I could live with that if it will last longer than sliders.

    Inch per side per drawer

    2" reduction in drawer width
