    does anyone have one of these in their 2nd gen? I'm wondering how this affects the usage of the storage bin in the bed. I'm thinking of adding one on the driver's side as I have the outlet on the other side.

    Anyone with this installed and an opinion?

    I've never seen a swing away toolbox. Do you have an example of one?

    I have an undercover swing box installed on both sides. I can still get to the stock storage bins, and the bed power with ease. A little weird to open the storage bins with the mounts, but you don't lose any functionality. I will take a picture of what I mean in a bit, but until then, here are the boxes installed!

    Awesome! Is the little yellow handle to unlock them for swinging out? How do they stay up against the bed sides? In the pic I saw, there appears to be a bracket you mount on the bed side that would cover up the cubby.

    Interested to see the mounts.

    Correct, the yellow handles pull a bar on the backside, releasing it from the forward clamp mount, allowing for swing. They sit nice and parallel to the bedsides, not flush, but I really like how they sit.

    I will grab some pictures of the mounts here soon and post em for ya!

    Couldn't get out if work earlier, so I took some pictures with my spare still in, so I couldn't swing them out, hopefully they will work.

    Two pictures of how they sit



    Kind of a step by step on stock bin access. It's a little finicky, but do it a few times and it's easy. But I have so much more space in the swing cases I don't use them anymore.

    $400 for both, $200 for one.

    So you save a little on Amazon

    Cool! I routed my tow wiring up into my left side cubby so I need to be able to access it. I run a 4pin wire out through the tailgate when I tow my camper.

    I like that box!

    Correct, the new version boxes can also be locked so they can't be removed from the mounts
