    I used to have a big diamond plate box that spanned my bed near the cab. I was forever having to take it out when I wanted to either fill the bed with fire wood or move my kayak onto the bed. I also noticed that how ever much space I had... I'd fill it. So I decided to downsize, and I went with a SKB box and mounted it off the rail with some powder-coated mounts. It's close to the cab so I can unlock and reach in without getting in the bed. I can now still fit other items like my kayak that need full length of the bed. So far I keep some of my hunting accessories, camp stove containers, hunting ammo, small pruner saw, etc.

    They come in many different sizes and are water tight. I made sure I used rubber seals when I drilled my holes through the box for the mount.

    May have already been a posted. I love the actionpackers, sturdy and lockable. I use one 48 and two 24. Leaving room for my coolers. They fit snugly under my tonneau cover. Here’s an old photo, but it works the same.

    These are great. I picked up two and brought them camping. It kept gear dry. Now I keep one under the cover with stuff.
