    Hi all,

    I've got a double cab short bed Tacoma and I'm wondering what the best toolbox is for this model. I don't want to totally kill off my bedspace but I'm tired of having to carry tools and supplies in the bed where I'm afraid it'll all get stolen.

    I was leaning towards the OEM toolbox available, but knowing it comes from a dealership I have a feeling it'll be 2-3 times more expensive than it should be.

    I also want to mount a hi-lift jack using 4XRAC or whatever it is. From what I can tell this doesn't allow you to get a regular toolbox but rather one that sits in the middle of the bed and does not sit on the bedrails or anything.

    I'm pretty new to truck mods so any help would be great!

    How exactly does the Lowes toolbox mount to the truck? I don't want to be drilling holes if I don't have to!

    You could always use the center drain hole in the back to hold in down. Use a single bold up through it

    What Tacoma toolboxes are available that mount onto the bedrails?

    Right now I am looking at a really nice UWS box for $335 from etrailer.com. Reputable dealer? Or should I be looking somewhere else? They seem to be the only people carrying UWS boxes.
