    I have a UWS box, black, it has been great also. Very solid, no leaks, latches work every time. It fits the Gen 2 the best out of all off the boxes I researched. I found mine on Amazon.com.

    I have the same UWS box as fjm0008 and got it on Amazon. He's right, great box, looks awesome, and was at my house in like 3 days. Does fit real nice.

    If you can find one that doesn't turn all your tools grey I would go with that one!!! But as long as they are aluminum...I think you are SOL!?

    I know this is an older thread, but idk where else to ask... whats the best way to mount a chest style toolbox to the bed of the tacoma? I'd hate to drill a bolt hole into something such as the gas tank!

    is that the 42" box? I was planning on buying one about a month ago and I decided to wait just a bit longer. How do you like it?

    Yes 42", I love it. Can put a 5 gal bucket in it, I've had since the truck was new, '05, it has faded a bit but not too bad. I don't carry long items too often so the loss of length in the bed doesn't bother me.
