    yea it'll fit but you will have some dead space where the wheel wells of the truck bed and cab are. the reason it fits well in a double cab is because the wheel wells dont have a space between it and the cab

    Gotcha. Thanks for the info. After 7 months are you still happy with the box? It seems that UWS is a popular choice around here. I've always had Weatherguards but they are just too damn expensive. I'm gonna order the box from amazon tomorrow, I'll post up some pics when I get it mounted. Thanks again for the info and the idea.

    How did you end up mounting it? I like this box as it seems as though my rockymount fork attachments that go on the rail would still be useable.

    None yet! It's new!
    When someone puts one in an access cab, I'd love to see some pics.

    I ordered mine from amazon, it should be here sometime next week. I'll post up some pics of what it looks like in the access cab.

    When the lid is open , does it project wider than the cab ?

    I'm trying to figure out if it would open with a cap on .

    Hey OZ, I thought I read a while ago that you were making a custom toolbox instead?

    I suppose your not planning on doing that anymore? I think i may do this over the holidays because I'm having the hardest time finding something chest style but slim at the same time.

    I made a mock up out of plywood to get the sizes right , but the box was going to be pretty costly . I'm still going to have to do something soon though , right now I'm on one big job so my tools all just stay there , but pretty soon I will be a nomad again .

    I was hoping an off the shelf box might work .

    I've been searching for an "off the shelf box" for awhile now without much luck. Guess trying to find a chest style box thats 16" high and a depth of 10"-12" is pretty much impossible. Hence why i may follow your route and build my own. How much did you figure it would cost? Now that winter is here i need a box to carry around all my winter gear and recovery stuff while leaving enough room in the box for my two dogs...

    It was going to be around $800 to get one made locally .

    Here are a few pics with the box in my '05 access cab. The fit and finish of the box are excellent. The only issue I ran into is I cannot open the lid with my tonneau cover on. The rails for the tonneau overlap the lid about 1 inch on each side. For that reason only I returned the box. If I didn't want to have both a toolbox and tonneau I would have definitely kept it. Very impressed with the UWS quality, while it's not as good as a weatherguard, nothing is. That being said I returned the box and ordered a UWS TBC42W from amazon for the same price. It's a wedge style box so I shouldn't have any issues with the tonneau. Long story short it's an excellent box which looks great in either an access or DC taco.

    Is this the same UWS TBS-54-SPLA that the OP used? I wish they had the black one on Amazon. I'd love one of these but want black, and I have $100 credit to use on Amazon from my Amazon credit card haha.

    Wow that looks really good. I have a UWS too.

    How are you going to mount it? Mine was mounted with J-bolts under the rail. There were little slots that the J-bolts hooked into, so there was ZERO modification to the truck itself. I am very happy with UWS. The lid and rails are double sheet metal, so it is much more difficult to pry the lid open. Its got a solid powdercoating job as well.

    Yes this is the same model that the OP used. Like I said I ending up returning this box because I couldn't use my tonneau with it. I ended up buying this http://www.amazon.com/UWS-TBC42W-We...B3X8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328107442&sr=8-1. UWS TBC42W. I actually like this box even more than the UWS TBS54SPLA. I'll post some pics of the new setup when I get a minute.

    Has anyone with a DCSB tried to run this box? It appears from the pictures that it is sitting semi in front of the wheelwheels in this access cab making it not usable in a dc. I'm just weighing in options as I shop around. It appears that this member is inactive so I figured I'd dig it up in hopes of someone else following suit.
