    Has anyone ever seen/heard of a truck box that sits flush (or very close to it) to the top lip of the bed? I have a 2002 prerunner dbl cab (short bed). Its kinda hard to find a box that will fit anyways, because of the wheel wells, but I was just wondering if anyone has heard of one that just sits flush.

    sounds like you're looking for a "chest-style" tool box. i'm not sure if you're clearing the wheel wheels or not. i've seen the chest style boxes in stepside/flareside trucks that would be narrow enough to fit between your wheelwells if your wheelwells do go all the way to the front of the bed. but, this is a start.

    Sweet, this is exactly what i'm looking for...unfortunately its for 2nd gens...I'm gonna double check my bed measurements, but i'm pretty sure that box wouldn't fit between my wheel wells and the front of the bed.

    The UWS low profile box is probably going to be the slimmest one that sits almost flush with the bed. Here is a pic of another member's box.
