Question How did you mount your toolbox?

I bought a Kobolt toolbox and went out and tried to use self tapping screws (stupid) like I did on my old ranger. Of course it didnt grip and I have serveral holes where I tried didferent size screws.

I did a search and saw where people were using j-hooks but I cant find a pic or directions how its done. Anybody have pics or know how its done>

Crap! Thanks for your help, I wasnt thinking about the sliders when I read about the j-hook.

I guess that means I could slide the tool box fwd if needed?

Thanks again!
