    I'd like to get a small toolbox that I can mount in the front on the bed floor. I'd like to get it lower than the wheel wells and possibly have it fit in front of the wheel wells in my long bed. Anyone know of a manufacturer?

    I'd probably keep a rubber mat over it so it doesn't get destroyed by whatever I have rolling around in the bed.

    I'm thinking I should just measure it out and find a square box that fits my dimensions. I've got a few welding friends that might want help out too.

    What about using the front bed bolts to fasten the box?

    I'm not afraid of drilling into the bed, I was just curious if there were any boxes made for this.

    I'd rather not use the bed bolts, because I might have to take it out occasionally.

    Yo dude, have you considered just buying a good rugged waterproof tool bag? Just keep it in the cab and when you're transporting people in the back seat then just throw it in the bed.

    that's not a bad idea. I'll look around to see what I can find. I try not to keep things in the cab that might tempt somebody.

    Yeah I hear ya about tempting people. But even with your tool box idea people will still be able to steal your tools. But at least they won't have to bust a window to get to them. So then the question is, what's worth more...a busted window or a bag of tools?

    I've been searching around. The internet is no good for this. I'm going to have to try out a truck and tractor store.

    Tractor Supply has good boxes that will fit under a tonneau cover. I have been looking at some, but since I am poor and going through a divorce - its gonna be a while.

    Have you thought about those rubbermaid totes (48 gallon or 24 gallon) that someone else posted about before? IIRC, the 48 gallon ones fit perfectly between the wheel wells, and 2 24gal ones fit back against the tailgate so you can fit 2 of each in a SB. They have loops to put pad locks through. Thinking about getting one myself just for shit I want to get out of the cab when I have people in the back, but wat to keep clean/dry.

    saw some low wide plastic (structural foam? polystyrene?) truck box things at wal mart, among others...lowes, home depot... like $45 tops.
    not wide enough for the whole bed, but close.
    has loops for locks. think the lowes ones have hinges.
