    Looks good! I want something like that for my bed just to throw jackets and kid's "accessories" (read: junk) in to get out of the cab, but still stay clean. My topper keeps the water out, but somehow dirt still manages to get in. :confused:

    Will add to the cheap/free mod thread. :D

    I just had a thought of getting one or two for my bed under my soft top, locking them to my D-rings somehow (cable, bike U-lock, something), and then lock the tote cover. My bed cover doesn't lock, but that would be a good solution! Can't remove from the bed, and cover is locked down. :D

    I have 2 of the larger boxes that I bought at WalMart back in 2000, and have tried to find a couple more but everywhere I look has to be shipped, asa WM does not stock in store anymore, and Target shows them available but not in store. They are handy, as I like as little clutter in cab as possible, and when I drive to FL to my property I use these to put all the soft luggage and towels etc in. They do clear the rails, but the one against cab will have to slide back about 1" when lid opens. They do not have seals, but do have a tongue & groove of sorts; they will have some water intrusion if you direct a water hose stream directly at lid/hindge area, but none under normal/moderate rain. Only rain intrusion ever had was on a trip from GA to PCB FL then across to Orange Beach AL where we got caught in 2 severe rain/mini floods that had 25-30 MPH winds; and 1 box had about 2-3 oz's or water intrusion which amounted to damp towels. I also added handles to mine which help lifting, and give a tie down point that would delay a grab & run by a few seconds.

    ^nice! Should be perfect for under my soft top then. It lets very little water in, but doesn't lock.

    Good to know about not being in stores too... I was thinking about checking out Target today. Guess I won't be too upset if I don't see them.

    Great idea I have been wanting a good bed cover but have been putting it off and now there may be a hurricane heading this way so this idea suits me pretty well. Great post. Thanks for the heads up.

    Sweet bin set-up boks!! I too live in Michigan and not wanting a bed cover, getting things up north can be a hassle with snow/rain. Been using cheap storage totes, but this set-up looks intentional!! Thank you!!

    looks good. I bought the regular 50 gallon rubbermaid from walmart for $17. The size is about the same (can fit 3). I would have gotten the action packer if I had seen it because it is lockable.

    BTW, walmart.com price on the action packer is $68.88.

    Get them, I love mine. Use them when the wife and I go visit the parents in FL. Dogs get the back seat so everything else needs to go in the back.

    I have a tonno, but I'm still gonna do this. I like being able to compartment stuff... and looks like you can sleep on top of it with regular camp gear.

    I thought BOKS had such a good idea that I took it to the next level and added two more totes onto the tailgate with my custom bed extender. Check it out! http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...d-extender-custom-check-out-my-nice-rack.html

    When the bed extender is stowed, it works great to hold ONE Action Packer bin in place. All winter, I have been driving around with one 24 Gal tote in the bed, filled with 60 Lbs of Sand and a set of tire chains for my rear wheels.

    Thanks for the inspiration and to all the great ideas on Tacoma World

    Wow you have some series water tight storage going on there!

    When I first saw this thread 2 years ago the 48g tub was $60, now there about $120. :( Wish I had bought one back then.
