Just stand at the side of the truck, unlock and lift the lid and there is all is. Mostly road trouble stuff inside, tools and such. Nice place to stash guns and fishing rods.

Was reading another thread about Taco-tilt. This idea might help.

I'll get a pic up when I can.

I dont like the look of a toolbox. just lock the tonneau cover.


i have a cover ArmorLid manufacturer but they stopped makign them. ABS plastic so you cant really scratch it. Its not so heavy I cant put it on or take it off by myself. Pop two gas hinges and two pins on the front hinges and its off. store next to house while i go transport my motorcycle.

Undercover Tonneau

I got a undercover tonneau a few months ago and love it. It is lockable, sturdy,waterproof, improved my MPG, and looks good on the truck. I store allot of gear for work in the bed that would max out toolbox storage space. I love my tonneau

I should have been more clear , I want to know the measurement from the bed to the top of the lid with it open at 90 degrees

It will essentially be toolbox depth ( front to back ) plus toolbox height

I want to see if the lid would contact the roof of my cap when I tried to open it with the toolbox inside the cap

Thanks for your help

Damn I'm having such a hard time deciding between the two. If I get a tonneau cover then I need a trailer to haul my ATV. If I get a toolbox ill need a trailer for the same reasons. However I could just take either of them out when I haul my quad. I don't know what to do. Either way it's probably going to be expensive to ship either one to Alaska.
