    I moved the metal toolbox from my old pickup to my 2010 Tacoma today.. can i just drill a hole and put a screw in to attach to bed rail ? i know i will have to go through the plastic on the bed rail..

    has anyone done this ? how did it work out ?

    thanks

    I would use j-hooks, drill hole through toolbox and hook under bed rail.

    I really like the mounting kit from better built...

    i'm not sure how a j hook would work , so will check them out at the hardware store..

    do they have the thing on them that u turn to tighten ? a pic would be nice :)
