    I am looking for a Toolbox for my 2nd Gen with a 6.5 Foot Bed. I'd like to see what my fellow Tacoma World members have!

    Personallym, I would prefer one that is under the bed rails and takes advantage of the 55 inch width-BUT beggers can't be choosers.

    Show me what yours looks like! Thanks

    Kobalt that I picked up at Lowes. It's the slim version. Works for what I need it for.

    For those of you with the Lowes/Kobalt box, how is the quality? I've been keeping an eye on them at work waiting for them to go on sale (normally $150, or $99 on black friday) or for us to get a damaged one back...

    The best of the best............ I bought a lowes special 1 day....it lasted a couple hrs on the truck before I realized it can't hold any weight inside without the metal fatiguing/popping/deforming.......then the pos wouldn't lock due to the low end locks/internal rods/levers.

    Next day I bought a weatherguard.....chris4x4 made my idea come to life when he installed the center rail from the truckbed onto the toolbox in the recess it had.....worked flawlessly.

    Box never fatigued/popped/flexed 1 bit.....no tinny sound to it, and I stood on it to wash the rain gutters on the house....I was between 230 and 250 at the time.....the top never flexed.

    Honestly the best toolbox I've ever seen.

    When u find out they are made by knaak, it makes sense.......and an 85lb ALUMINUM bed box was quite impressive compared to the lower end boxes.

    sick truck! Looks great, off topic but what are your lift/tire/wheel specs?

    And just to keep the peace... Nice toolbox!

    I bought the lowes slimline low pro toolbox and noticed the welds were effed up as soon as I got to the truck. That's as far as my experience with that went.

    Well for what I use it for it's fine. I don't keep much in it as of now. Jumper cables and my softball bag. It is definitely no UWS or Weatherguard.

    Thanks man :cheers:

    Well I just have a spacer in the front and a AAL in the rear, I plan on getting rid of the spacer real soon. my tires on 285/65R18
