Where Yall Buying Your Tool Boxes?

Fixin to buy an in-bed toolbox (not sure if that is the correct terminology). The low profile ones that do not sit on the bed rails, but instead sit in the bed. Also what are yall paying for these?
Thanks
Kevin

Re: Where Yall Buying Your Tool Boxes?

I'm happy with my purchase. It pretty thin diamond plate but it does the job.

Re: Where Yall Buying Your Tool Boxes?

i used to have a weather guard and the only reason i took it off was because it sat up on my bed rails, i have also been looking for a low profile style box that sits in the bed

Re: Where Yall Buying Your Tool Boxes?

Weatergaurd is the best IMO but they are pricey! Go online and look for a used 1, last 1 I bought was like new and 1/8 the $.

Doesn't roll with anyone or tag along to be cool...

Re: Where Yall Buying Your Tool Boxes?

Weatherguard seems to be the absolute top of the line, and Job Box seems to make some pretty good ones. I would imagine for one that sits on the floor of the truck though it wouldnt have to be as sturdy as one that hangs from the rails. Biggest difference in brands will generally be in the latches and how strong the cover is.

I've only ever owned crossover boxes but I think if I were to get another box I would either go with a dirt cheap one and just deal with the latches and flexible cover, or spring the money for a weatherguard one that will outlast at least 2 trucks.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

I run my front tires up against it every time I load my 4 wheeler. It has been holding up good for about 2 years so far. Id purchase another one.
