What stops the drawer from coming out and falling on me?

Can the dividers be removed?

The individual smaller dividers can be removed from this drawer, however the long dividers that run the length of the box are welded for structural purposes and are not able to be removed.

I see that the dividers can be removed, but can the compartments be removed to create one big drawer?

Unfortunately they cannot be removed to created 1 large drawer.

Can the drawer be completely taken out?

You need to pull the drawer completely. There are two drawer tracks/slides on the left and right side being connected with rivets. you need to shear those 2 rivets on both sides to loosen the drawer. Once the rivets are loose, they can take out the drawer completely.

Can I order custom drawer units? (or custom sizes)

Sorry Weather Guard does not manufacturer any custom sized boxes.

Can I load a 4-wheeler on top of the box (or anything else heavy) ?

It depends on the model. For example, the 338-5 can support 750 pounds on top of the unit. As long as you don't go over that it will be fine.
