    I was just wondering if anyone knows of any good tool boxes for a 2008 Tacoma. I really like this one from Daws Better Built http://www.dawsbetterbuilt.com/bbt/quantum.html, but it doesn't fit. If anyone knows of any that are similar to this aerodynamic or curved design let me know I'd appreciate it.

    PS I just joined the forum and I have some pics up now, excited to be apart of the club

    I don't know if you work out of your truck, I always thought that the side boxes were nice because they opened up the bed a little more. Toyota offers them but maybe somewhere else you can get them cheaper. Good looking truck, did those tires come factory ?

    Mine does'nt slope down but it is a low profile from uws. I paid $272. I have a pic in my gallery. I have it attached with j-hooks and wing nuts for easy removal.

    Thanks for the posts.

    Yes, my tires were factory

    I really want something a little more rounded but I do like your low profile box it's something to consider

    I actually think Lowe's Husky tool boxes are pretty nice. A buddy has the one I'm looking at that sits on the bed floor and stays below the bed rails.

    Husky's are Home Depot. I saw a Home Depot had a flush mount Husky but they only had them for full size trucks. It's about 4" too wide.

    i found a cross over that is 61Lx19.5 deep and 14.5 wide which is perfect for my needs, it a delta cross over tool box. im going to be working on a way not to have to put the loading ramps on to the tail gate when im loading my 600lb quad in to the back of my toco. im drawing up some plans tonight.
