    Good job. Did you have to balance things out with your gas tank on one side or other things?

    Thanks! I tried my best too. The water tank sits mostly to the passenger side, directly over the axle. I did my best guess that I'm probably going to have more weight in the two drawers then I will in the fridge. Hopefully I'm correct, having the "tacoma lean" already its not visually discernible that it has caused anymore lean than I normally would have empty.

    Some photos from our BC Overland 2017 Trip









    And... I got to drive the ARB 3rd Gen SEMA Tacoma. There is definitely something to be said about the BP51's over the nitrocharger sports. If we didn't have to pay for our wedding next year, I'd be buying them tomorrow. Unreal.

    Where/Who did you order and Dunn & Watson slides from? I'm looking at their dual drawers with the slides built in above. Did you order direct through their site? Any information is greatly appreciated.

    So after some talks they were able to open a Canadian site to ebay. Here's the link to their page http://www.ebay.ca/usr/dunn_and_wats...p2047675.l2559
    Shipping is decent, I've ordered A LOT of stuff from Australia now instead of through the states. Dollar is nearly on par with ours and most times the shipping is cheaper then buying from the states. You will however get a CAN Duties Bill in the mail about a month after from their shipping agent.

    EDIT: To add to that, when they first added the Canadian side, they didn't have much product choice. For instance the 50L fridge slide wasn't posted. I was able to purchase on the ebay.com.au side and they sent me the adder for the shipping difference.
