    Another idea you can use is a long bolt/washer from under truck through the bed into the tool box secured with a cotter pin. Makes it able to be removed quickly if needed and will sit flush on the bed floor. I did this with a previous truck and worked perfectly.

    Tacoma owners complain that the new Ridgeline's storage bed box is for stupid suburbanites who should be driving Civics.

    Tacoma owners then go to have a whole thread about how to install a storage bed box in their Tacoma.

    :rofl:

    Just wanted to add an update to the container that I was using in my Taco; I am now able to lock it.

    Those needing a container to fit in your box nice and neat, lockable and removable.

    A few people on this forum have CONFIRMED that this does fit under the Tonneau Cover.

    Hope this helps someone looking for a nice container solution.

    *****************************************************************************************************
    I purchased a 48 Gallon Rubbermaid container for hauling things.
    Originally I used a "bungee strap" to hold it closed.
    I have since purchased a small cable lock.

    Here are some links and pictures; in case someone needs a good setup.

    Link for the Lock:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WO84Z2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00
    Link for the Container:
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CFV0DO...colid=XBYX4ETYU4KQ&coliid=IRMYYQURBL2F9&psc=1

    This is how I secured it. The bungee strap was just in case the latch came undone while traveling
    (Better to be safe than sorry; even though it looks RedNeck)
    I only needed ONE ratcheting tie down I purchased at Walmart to secure it in the box.

    Here is the lock I purchased to lock it.

    Here is how it looks locked on the Container

    Yes.
    The larger ones are Plano 1819 Storage Lockers. The smaller one at the tailgate is a Plano 1719 Storage Locker.
    With the tool box I couldn't quite fit three side by side across the bed. Without the tool box, I believe a long bed could hold four across.

    Nope. It just sits in place. It is a solid hickory board and with the weight of the handyman on it it never even budges . Not even on the roughest trails.

    I've thought about that. And your point is probably valid.

    As a Fire/Medic, I have seen certain things become projectiles and it gets nasty at that point. I had a 1 ton dually that was being a Brodozer with his 4wheeler in the bed...Well he didnt think it was cool to strap it down, and when he struck a suv head on, that 4 wheeler made one helluva mess to clean up

    Ok. you have convinced me to improve this set up for hiway travel. I bet I could easily have some sort of quickrelease set up in it to stabilize it in place. Thanks for your input.
