I run my Triton up around 42/44 cold laden so 36 unladen sounds OK. If the back jumps around too much without any weight in it just reduce the pressure in the rear a bit.

I dropped the front to 31 and the rears to 35 to see how it goes. A bit better with the towbar and lower pressures but still a bit harsh. Think I will stick at 34R and wait till I get the trundle draw put on and maybe stick a bit of a load in the draw.

You probably need to swap it around 35 front and 31 rear for the time being.

The placard says 30 for front and doesn't change for load or no load.
Filled it back up today. 67.53ltrs for exactly 700klms. 9.65lp 100klms. Not that good at the moment. That was with a return trip from Sydney. Should get better as it runs in I guess. I would hope to get mid 8's really.

Got this today. 1800mm x 735mm x 150mm deep. It's on Teflon sliders and colour coded Isuzu white. Overall it's pretty good but I will take it back for a couple of mods to stop it bouncing. Easy done I reckon. Valuable space for my recovery gear, tools etc. I am going line it with the trusty old marine carpet.

I will need to do a couple of mods before I am 100% happy. Got to stop the free play that allows it to bounce, need to put something at the end at the front (cabin) end that stops metal on metal ....as in ...when you push it shut it is the tray hitting the enclosure at the end that stops the tray going any further. It won't take much to wear the powder coating off at the end of the tray. It is also far from dust proof which was a bit disappointing and will have to be addressed somehow.
It is in at ARB today getting the bar and winch on and I will post up later. That is all my money will allow at the moment and will have a couple of months off to recover the finances.

The drawer looks great! should be easy to pad the end so its not meteal on metal.

You could use rubber stripping all around the opening to seal it against dust & rain/moisture

Got the ARB bar fitted and the Ironman 9500lb winch. Also picked up the Dmax alloys my kids had stored for me in Qld. It's starting to look like how it should!!
