    I'm contemplating a tool box, and if I mount it in the bed I'd like to put another bed rail ON the tool box. I don't want to pull the one off the bed side, because if I go with a shorter box I'd have to chop the rail.

    I'm thinking of a 48" side box. So I'd like to find a 48" piece of the bed rail to mount to the box so I have someplace to still anchor to up top. Is this a dealer-only thing, or is it sold elsewhere?

    Why fill them?
    They just "dump" to the other side of the shell. You already have three in the front of the bed that are open to the ground. Not going to get any more dirt or water splashing in than you are through those.....





    .... or a 5ftx5ft "hole" in the top :D

    That looks awesome, i like the way it sits into the box.
    I should probably do the same with the front of the bed
