    How did you guys mount your OEM tool box? I picked up used one and trying to figure it out how to attach it to the bed rail... If I can't figure it out, I will just drill into the bedside, thats how my current one is mounted :rolleyes:

    i used "J" hooks, under the bed rails and through the tool box, no holes drilled in truck, no problems, just snug them down

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    After a LOT of research I found the part number for the mount kit. It is; PT767-35050-HK and the kit looks like this;

    I also found out that the locking mechanism on the tool box is broken... My luck :rolleyes: The only part which could fix it would be;PT-767-35050-BL. My question is has anyone order this part and what actually came in the package?

    Well instead of fixing the locking mechanism I went a different route... The locking mechanism I didn't like at all it sticks out far from the edge of the box and since my tool box is packed with tools I know it would get caught on something and get stuck eventually. Also I accidentally locked the box and had to break in. It wasn't hard at all few tugs on the lid and it was open. So I grabbed some padlocks and padlocks mounts at Home Depot and riveted the mounts in. Tool box is easy to open and should be pretty hard to break into for the common thief. Considering I got the box for $100 and spent another $40 on locks and hardware its not bad at all since new box retails for $400+...

    The fitment in the bed is awesome! The tool box looks great as well. Not digging the diamond plate lid, but few cans of black spray paint will fix that. Also the box is the roomiest of all boxes I had on my truck which I need since I have plenty of tools I use every day.

    Few pictures for your viewing pleasures :)

    HEHEHEHEHE.

    YOU LOOKING FOR VALIDATION ?????? ROFLMAO.

    Hey if it works then that's how it is. I love mine. The best is i don't have to drill into the truck to secure. 5 bolts and it comes off.
