What do yall usually do to resolve these problems?
short of removing the tool box when you need the bed space, there really isn't much else to do. the tool box is a double edged sword. great for keeping everything locked up and dry, but you lose two feet of bed space.
You could build an 8 or 9" deep platform on the floor of the bed that you can lock up, and still load your bed up. several guys have done that for their rigs. mostly expedition builds and camping. that is the only way I know if to get what you want.
