    Thats a nice looking box for a hundred bucks. If I needed a box full time I would take a look at that. My box is only in the truck when I go off-roading. I keep all my trail gear in it.

    I have that model except mine is the full size low profile. I like it, but the lock mechanism has become a pain to get the key in but nothing a bit of WD-40 won't fix. It's a great box for the money.

    i rigged mine up to use a small plate that i made up. hooked it under the track mounts for my old tonneau cover and used a couple of bolts to hold it in place.

    others have gone the simple route and used j bolts :)

    I attached mine using J-hooks. I put the J-hook through the slots in the toolbox and hooked it under the bed rail system, as there's plenty of strength to keep that secure. I then put a washer on the j-bolt in the toolbox, a lock-washer on top of that, and a wingnut to keep it attached. Works perfectly for me.

    I have one and I really like it! They sell clamps at Lowe's that work in our railing system so you don't have to drill holes! I'll find my pics and put them up shortly!

    I have the box in mine. Just used 4 L-brackets bolted into the bed track and then bolted to box. Very easy to install. Great for carrying tools and such. Bed space is not a big deal for me, if I need to haul larger items I just hook up my 5x12 trailer.
