4x4 Vehicle Drawers
Vehicle drawers mounted in the back of you 4x4 can help you keep things tidy and tuck loose items away. It stops items from bouncing around the back damaging the vehicle and other objects they come into contact with. You can use the tops of the drawers as a floor so you can still load other items on top of them. A lot of people that get them have a fridge permanently mounted in the back of their vehicle and have a fridge slide built into the drawer. This makes it easy to access the fridge by simply sliding it out.
Good drawers have tie down points on top so you can tie down any cargo sitting on top of the drawers. They use a marine grade carpet on the top which is hard wearing and can get wet or damp as sometimes happens. You can sometimes get wings that fit in the gap around wheel arches so it keeps the floor level though these are very vehicle specific and you may need to get them custom made. Some people use the gap as additional storage space.

Should 4x4 drawers be removable?
Depends on how you use your vehicle. Most people that install them are happy to leave them in place. Drawers are heavy and once they are loaded even more so. They should be securely mounted to the vehicle tray. This means it may not be simple task to remove and install them as required. The reason you may want to do this is carrying large objects. Drawers reduce load carrying space and if they had a quick release system then they could easily be taken out and reinstalled.
