    So Im tired of stuffin stuff behind my back seat in my double cab, and having to slam the back seat to get it to latch. Its a pain. So I was gonna put thisin my bed and use it as a makeshift tool box till I get some cash to put a real one on... like when Im out of college. What do yall think? What else could I use. I currently have a bucket w/ a top.

    Looks good to me.

    I'm looking for a thin, low box that doesn't go over the rails and that will fit under a flat bed cover, to put in the front of my bed. I want something that won't take up much room.

    I'd like to put in a rollnlock cover. Anyone have one? They are the coolest cover out there and a great thief deterrent.

    Here's a link

    The greatest thing about that- you can fill it with ice. :D

    Can't fill a bucket with ice?:) Just kidding.
    OP, looks good to me.
    I have a topper on my regular cab and a laundry basket for tools and junk.
