Thanks for posting this! This looks like a great solution for holding down those beds

Finally installed my new box. I love the slim width but I wish it went higher so it met with my back window. I guess that would mean a non low-profile one?



I worry about theft so I drilled into my bed rails and put carriage bolts going up into the tool box with nylon threaded nuts.

If only I noticed before I ordered. Oh well it still gets the job done so I can't complain. And it looks better than the plastic one I had on previously.

Just got a betterbuilt, low profile, slimline. Looks great, and has a lot more room than it looks like. I had an interesting conversation when I bought it from a truck specialty store that does a lot of tool boxes (largest portion of their annual sales according to them). The person who owns the store said that UWS got bought not too long ago. It apparently used to be a family owned business, now someone else runs the show. Since then, according to the store owner, their quality and customer service have gone down noticeably, and after years of having UWS as their primary brand, they no longer recommend them for the price they come at. I don't know if there is any truth to that, it might just be a sales ploy, but it might be worth looking into, especially if you use your toolbox for work. Either way, my new toolbox is excellent quality, and I would highly recommend checking into betterbuilt!

I have been looking at the Bolt latch. Did you install it yourself? Was your original latch riveted in? Did you drill it out? How did the new one attach?

The Bolt latch was really easy to install. You drill out the old rivets with a 3/16" drill and reinstall the new one with include rivets. The instructions that came with it are well done. It's a very nice design.

Where did you find this kit? I'd like to install one in my taco also. How did you get the key to match up with it too?

I had a Black Lo Pro from Tractor Supply on the Ranger I totaled, but it won't fit the Tacoma. Gonna sale it and get a UWS Black Lo Pro. Once you get used to the extra storage it's hard to go without it.

FYI,
I bought a new TRADESMAN Tool Box and it shipped direct from; http://www.tradesmantruck.com/catalog/steel/

What ever you do don't buy a tool box from this company direct.

Tradesman has the worst customer service I have ever seen!

I ordered a Steel Cross Gull Wing Bed Box in black. The 1st time they packed it in a single layer of cardboard. It look like someone beat it with a hammer. So I shipped it back on Tradesman's dime. A mo. later they shipped a 2nd one the same way and it wasn't as bad. After about an hour on the phone with the seller & Tradesman I got a $100.00 off the price. I was tired of waiting so I took the POS as is. My father is a auto body man. We spent about 3 hours working out the dents, re-welding the crack welds. So I had to have it re-powder coated too. The lids still looked like crap in black. After taking a DA (sanding) to the lids the powder coater said you might want to powder coat them in white, as white will cover the dents better. The powder coater said if I did like the white he would powder coat them in black for free. What the hell why not? It took a day or two but I kind of like it now. What's your .02 cents?
