The nicest but also the most expensive I've seen are from African Outback. A great unit, well built, but you'll pay for it.

I am using the Adventure Trailers drawer system, which is composite, light-weight and strong. The main drawer holds the recovery gear, compressor and some tools. The drawer on the left holds the remaining tools and spares and the right drawer holds the kitchen kit. Two 1510 Pelican cases are secured to the top of the main drawer for the medical kit and remaining supplies.

The National Luna fridge is mounted to a Front Runner slide, and to the left of the fridge is where I stow the XJack. In the small LR bins aft of the footwells is where the Kermit chairs stow, along with various extra blankets, Quickie straps, etc.

Overall, I am pleased, and the unit makes good use of the limited storage in the rear of the DI.

Found some more pictures of my system that may be interest...Im not mad on drawers as you have to empty them to use the vehicle for other things.....i prefer to use boxes so you can swap them ....also cleaning all the kit after a trip is easy as you can take it all in the house in one box.....
