    Ive been on a search for a great condition double cab long bed 4x4 and havent been having too much luck.

    This brings me to ask about sacrificing and going short bed. Have any of you fit a quad in your bed with a toolbox?

    I doubt it at least without a slim box. I have a normal one and have about 48" between the box and the tailgate. Have you considered a small trailer? It's probably safer than in the bed anyways?

    Yeah I figured I would have to put tires on the toolbox if it would work.

    If you end up with a box and a short bed I say you start looking around for a trailer. Echo makes good trailer and they deliver to your house but assembly is required.

    I wanted a narrow tool box so I made one. Although, I probably could have fit a full sized box (but I made this for like 5$) and a quad as I have an A-cab. It's a little rough but if a guy took his time you could make a pretty nice one.

    How it fits with the box, and my ugly mug

    it's about 9" wide and I have about 7' from the edge of the box to the edge of the tailgate folded down

    Quad is a 500cc honda, 83" long. Wheelbase 53" Think I have about 2' from the rear of the tires to the edge of the tailgate.

    Hope all this helps maybe.
