My lovely partner Felicity bought me an ARB annex for my birthday. Fitting would have to be the easiest install in the world!
Roof rack with the rod tube removed temporarily
Image

side bracket for the roof rack. Mounting the annex requires either four or six holes to be drilled for the mounting plate of the annex to be secured. I opted for six bolts!
Image

3mm pilot hole drilled. I went for two holes high at 50mm apart, and a third hole low 48mm below the line of the first two holes.
Image

All three 6mm holes done. Its imperative to make sure that the 4 holes across the top all line up so that there are no issues down the track. I mounted mine in such a way that the top tube of the roof rack protects the top of the annex when stowed.
Image

All done. Took about 15 minutes and 2 litres of water! I love the build up!

Got the ute booked in Monday for its 20,000km service and to have the Dobinson suspension kit installed. I feel a little like Christmas came early this year.

Got the side mounting brackets for the drawer system done, over engineered but fits well and theres no movement in the drawers. Just need to fab up the bottom bracket now :)

I've designed the wings of the drawers to slope away from the sides of the ute, will help to reduce the risk of things rolling up against the window and potentially shattering it. I've moved the water tap to the left side of the drawer, this will leave the right side clear to use as a secure storage locker for firearms etc on hunting trips. I'm also adding in a air fitting running back to the compressor, idea being you just flick the compressor on with the switch in the cab, drop the tailgate, plug the air line in and off you go. Trying to figure out where i can shoehorn in a 4L air tank but uncommitted space is getting hard to find!

Got the mount for the water tap made up today, decided the air fitting was going to make things a lttle snug so will mount it elsewhere.

Hi mat, I went for the 150kg constant load up front, and 450kg constant load in the arse. That's given me 45mm lift at the front and 75mm in the rear with no load other than the canopy and rack, but that will settle some over the next couple of weeks
