Nice! I might get this to transport my handguns... (stupid California laws)

Was thinking of just getting the regular old tool box to keep my ar15 and handguns in when I'm heading to the range or something

For those who have them, are they secure enough for firearms? Also, are they waterproof? The only other lock box option I have seen are the center console lock boxes, which seem half the size of these and they are 100 bucks more? Are there other options I am not aware of?

i just wanted to add my 2 cents ya'll. the box is very well built with heavy duty metal and a strong locking system. now could someone break into it if they wanted, ABSOLUTELY! as many have said before, "a lock keeps an honest person out". the box uses the factory threaded slots from the previous storage compartment so who knows how "strong" those are. and the lock is a normal lock. not some crazy bullet proof locking system here. if the Tuffy box was somehow mounted to the truck frame along with a Fort Knox locking system, I'd say BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

i'm not trying to advertise or sell these things to TW members. it's just a pretty cool larger locking storage system for us with Taco owners. as far as weatherproof? it does NOT have drain holes which would make me think that the company assumes no water would get in it.

i'm keeping my truck mainly stock so i will never have any COOL threads with install pics. so when i got a chance to do one i was kinda happy. the only reason the tuffy box install took so long in the first place was that i kept having to get my iphone out to take pics.

keep truck'n TW.

fyi. if ya don't have the 12v plug on one side, you can install two of them
I like them because they are a little bigger . My RC has 2 but I can barely fit my towstrap and a extra shackle in one And a few misc. items in the other . . I'd pay like 40-50$ . Don't want to pay $400 to lock up like $100 worth of stuff .

Great write up, thanks!

It looks like the perfect size to hold tow straps and misc. tools that if by chance someone where to rip the box out, wouldn't be a huge loss.

I'm thinking that drilling 2 small drain holes might be a good idea?!?! I couldn't tell from the pictures if it is a tight seal or not?!?!?

It comes with weatherstrip you can add around the door and box. Drain holes probably wouldn't hurt anything at all. If fact multiple drain holes might help wet stuff dry even better with the ventilation driving down the highway.

Good point about the added benefit of drain holes.

Do you have a link to where you purchased it from?

Thanks!

I have one of those Tuffy boxes and a Console Vault. The angled top of the Tuffy box is kind of a bummer.

I like to be sure that my stuff remains my stuff.

My coworker has it on his taco but the hindges are starting to rust really badly since he surfs every week. if they reduced the price I would get it it's pretty nice overall . I'll take a pic of the rust when I get time..
