    My awesome parents got me a Chrome Diamond Plate UWS toolbox for Christmas, it was the only thing I wanted and asked for so my family all chipped in and helped pay for it, so technically it was a gift from the family. I love it and it's awesome but I only have one complaint about it and it had to do with the gas shocks/lifters. On other toolboxes I looked at while shopping around some had lids that when the button was pushed or latch released the lid would open itself. Does anybody know where I can get so lifters/shocks that will raise the lid of the box by itself? I just find it a little inconvenient that others have them and not UWS. I'd prefer something that is a bolt on direct replacement for the old one's. Thanks guy's. Pic.

    I'll be sure to, I guess what I should've asked is if there is a way of know the psi the struts need or something like that to lift the top on its own.
