The 4×4 fridge slide is a great way to store your food and drinks in your truck. It’s a great feature for camping, tailgating, or any other outdoor activity where you need to bring some food along with you. It can also be used as temporary storage if you don’t have room in your home fridge for all the groceries that come home from the store every week!

But there are many options out there when it comes to choosing a 4×4 fridge slide, which can make it confusing to figure out what would work best for your particular needs. In this guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know when choosing a 4×4 fridge slide so that you can pick one that will fit perfectly into your vehicle without wasting any space or money!

Understand your current fridge

Before you start shopping, it’s important to know the physical dimensions of your fridge as well as its weight. This will help you select a slide that’s appropriate for your rig.

The overall capacity is how much food and drinks can fit into the fridge at once. If you have a big family or regularly host events where there are lots of people who need to access the contents inside, then this is something you’ll want to consider.

The height, width, and depth are all important for installation purposes—make sure that the fridge slides are tall enough, so they don’t hit anything on their way back in; wide enough so they fit comfortably in their designated space; deep enough not to get stuck along any walls (especially behind beds), bumpers or cabinets while they’re being pulled out by passengers entering/leaving through doors etcetera.

Lastly, note down how many shelves there are inside yours – particularly important if it has drawers where one might store items like butter or cheese, which could melt over time due to heat build-up inside fridges during summer months when temperatures outdoors reach high levels.

Know your vehicle

When it comes to choosing your 4×4 fridge slide, there are a few things to consider before you make a decision.

  • First and foremost, you need to know what size fridge will fit inside your vehicle. This is important because if you have a full-size door on the back of your 4×4, chances are that standard fridges won’t work for you.
  • Secondly, if you’re looking at buying an underbody slide or a smaller size option (like one of our Prodigy models), then knowing where in the cabin of your car/truck/SUV will be most convenient for accessing food when driving is paramount.
  • Finally, ensure that whatever type of underbody slide system works for your vehicle load capacity needs (this information should be available in our product descriptions).

Consider your future vehicle

Consider the length of your current vehicle. Larger 4×4 slides are meant to accommodate larger vehicles. If you’re looking for a slide to install in an SUV or truck, for example, choose a longer model that will give more room for passengers and cargo.

If you need something shorter and more compact, there are plenty of options out there—but keep in mind that these might not work so well with bigger trucks like full-size pickups.

Consider the length of your future vehicle. It might seem obvious, but it’s worth thinking about since some slides require cutting parts off before installation (like the mounting brackets). If you’re planning on upgrading soon, opt for a slide with modular components instead so as not to waste money on something that won’t fit once you’ve upgraded!

Consider the slide mechanism

Next, consider the slide mechanism. The mechanism is what allows you to easily open and close the fridge slide.

For example, some slides can be operated by simply lifting a lever on the outside of your RV. These are popular because they’re simple and easy to use—but they may not have a lot of weight-bearing capacity or durability over time.

Other slides require that you pull up a handle on the inside of your RV, which means there’s less likely that other people will accidentally open it while you drive around town (or at least this would be less likely if said person knew where they were going).

Some slides come with special locks that prevent them from being accidentally opened while driving down bumpy roads (or even bumpier ones). This is good for safety reasons—and also because it prevents kids from sneaking into your refrigerator when they’re supposed to be sleeping!

Conclusion

With the right information, you can make an informed decision about which fridge slide is best for you. Whether you purchase a slide that’s built for your current vehicle or plan to upgrade later on down the road, there are plenty of options out there to choose from. We hope this article helped shed some light on what goes into selecting the right 4×4 fridge slide!
