    Hi Guys,

    I see a lot of good info. on here about Tacoma's that cover a lot of territory. I just picked up my 08 Tacoma Double Cab and so far ( 200 miles ) I really like it. One small problem has came up as to how to mount my low profile tool box. Can't use j hooks and can't seem to find a way to get to the nuts to tighten them once the holes are drilled for the bolts. Has anyone ran into this?:confused:

    actually, im not really sure what a spring washer looks like, i dont think. i may have an idea though. can you get them at home depot or lowes?? if so, i may invest in a few of them.
