What are cargo drawers?

Whether you’re looking for 4×4 drawers for storing recovery kits or water tanks, or a ute drawer system for keeping your tools and work equipment safe, cargo drawers are the perfect solution.
How do cargo drawers work?
Cargo drawers work by being installed on a set of rollers in a drawer system. Complete with a handle and often lockable features, you can easily access anything you need by simply pulling out the drawer and engaging the in-built sliding motion.
The best cargo drawers will also offer lock-in and lock-out functionality so that if your ute or 4WD is parked on uneven terrain or a slope, you don’t have to worry about injury or damage. You can simply engage or disengage the drawer lock feature whenever you’re ready.
