    I have an Access Cab and currently have the UWS low-profile box on it. My wife and I are starting to get into biking and I am wondering if there are any good solutions out there for carrying two bicycles in the bed without removing the toolbox.

    I know you guys on here are the masters of creativity so I am looking for any feasible solutions!

    I know I can get a trailer hitcher carrier, but that is not ideal.

    x2, bolt it to either the front or lid of the tool box (I'd use the front unless you want to keep your tailgate up).

    Otherwise, there are lots of hitch-mount bike carriers that work great. I have a Thule 2 bike carrier that fits in a class 3 receiver. Or you can get bed bars that go across the truck and mount the bike carriers to them so the bikes sit above the bed.

    Anyone have a picture with that bolted to a toolbox? Just curious as to how it looks both when in use and when not being used.

    Thanks in advance.

    I attached my fork mounts to the lid and used black silicone around the bolts to insure it doesn't leak. Sorry I don't have any pics of it.
