UWS

I have a UWS box, black, it has been great also. Very solid, no leaks, latches work every time. It fits the Gen 2 the best out of all off the boxes I researched. I found mine on Amazon.com.

I have the same UWS box as fjm0008 and got it on Amazon. He's right, great box, looks awesome, and was at my house in like 3 days. Does fit real nice.

If you can find one that doesn't turn all your tools grey I would go with that one!!! But as long as they are aluminum...I think you are SOL!?

I just drilled the UWS LoPro right into the bed. The holes are hardly noticeable.

I want to do this to mine soon. Like a couple above, I have the Lo Pro UWS and love it! I made J hooks out of eye bolts but I'm gonna drill the bed rails and bolt it in cause it slides around a little right now

Yes 42", I love it. Can put a 5 gal bucket in it, I've had since the truck was new, '05, it has faded a bit but not too bad. I don't carry long items too often so the loss of length in the bed doesn't bother me.
