    This looks really good. I like how the edges contour with the bed of the truck. Your access hatches are super nice too!

    Is this pull out on sliders or rollers of any kind or does it just slide on the bed floor?

    The whole drawer assembly is 5 parts.
    2 drawers approx. 25lbs each
    Center box approx 60lbs
    2 side parts approx 10lbs ea

    Suspension is unchanged. I take everything out if i have to use full bed. Light enough to move out by myself.
