    Best? I'd really like a weatherguard. Instead I bought a kobalt from Lowes and added hasps and locks on each side.

    unless kobalt makes a deeper box, the one that goes half way down is not deep enough to put a ruck into, nice box and a good price, i just need more room

    Weatherguard is most secure and strongest IMO. You're also likely to find a model that's deep enough for your needs. We had them on all the work trucks at the mine and they are well made and stout. UWS seems popular but I have no first hand experience.

    Also get yourself some machinist t-nuts for the rails if you want a hi-lift mount like Kevins and some 1/8 metal and something to make a template out of and bend up the 1/8 metal yourself. Drill some holes at the top and you have Kevins hi-lift mount for 1/8 of the price.

    Your first post would indicate you plan on putting it into your tool box which I think is better anyway so disregard that if that's your plan.
