    Hence the regional forums. :thumbsup:
    You are welcome to contribute though.
    However this one is intended for the IE truck community.

    Is there a particular place you want to mount these to the bed?

    My bed is a little cramped already. To the left of the tool box now sits my battery. To the right my jack. Short bed problems.

    Ooof...thats a tight squeeze (TWSS :rofl:)

    The only places that look promising are mounted to the side of your toolbox, on either side of your spare(if they would even fit in there), or on top of your shock towers laying on their side...which Im sure you don't want them on their side haha

    Actually...you could also try mounting them using t-nuts that slide into your bedrails too if those are super heavy/are sitting on something :notsure:

    Switch tire mounting position so that its standing up in the middle of your shock cage. Then you can mount the boxes on the left and right side of the tire.
