Picked up a Socal Teardrops fridge slide today. Has a storage drawer under the fridge for a Cook Partner stove.

i like that slide mount. how many things do you think you can fit under it?

It's designed to fit a pop up 20" cook partner stove. I've got a box of gloves and wipes in there right now.

Had spindle gussets installed yesterday, my cab mount repaired, and installed the mid and rear skid plates. FabZone Armor out here in San Diego, CA absolutely KILLED it. I'm so impressed with these guys metal fab skills, and their work ethic. I definitely recommend them.

As the paint on the gusset is drying...

What the Cab Mount looked like before... (To be fair, this was my own doing. I had a CMC done and while it was very good, my upgrade to 35's required more and I was headed on a 2 week trip the next day. So drastic measures were taken. I knew someone some day would be able to repair it. So I did what I had to do and got on the road. It was a great trip to🤣.)

Finally finished and installed my homemade C02 tire inflation setup. Pretty stoked with how it turned out. Should give me roughly around 20 fills at around 15 psi each for all 4 of my 285/70/17 tires until I need a refill.

How is the SCT fridge slide holding up? I've been looking at different options for a slide that has a stove mounted under it. I thought I was pretty set on the ATOverland one because I thought they were the only ones to make something like that: https://atoverland.com/collections/fridges-and-slides/products/at-combo-slide

But this looks pretty trick too. The ATOverland one is designed to work with a partner stove that was made especially for them where all of the controls are at the side of the stove but I noticed with the SCT one there's little piano hinges that you fold the stove up with. I really want to be able to fit the 22" 2 burner partner stove because it has it's burners spaced 12" apart so you can easily fit 10" sauce pans and stuff.

How well do the hinges work with the stove? Is the stove stable when you flip it up?
