    Does anyone have any reccomendations on a tool box for a double cab short bed (preferably slim)? I Just went to three auto places and they only have fittings for a long bed. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Looks like this company makes what i'm looking for. What are yall's preferred method of rigging? I hear a lot about J hooks but I also hear you can horizantally drill holes in the box and then replace one of the rail screws with a longer one, and thus connecting the box to an already existing hole on the rail.

    i just got a low profile and slim box last week and i love it. it was from autoanything. here's the link....http://www.autoanything.com/truck-toolboxes/65A2742A0A0.aspx. look to get the midsized truck one if u want the brite...they dont sell the midsized in black, so i got the downsized one in black for me. only difference was 2" on each side to hang on the bed rails more.

    Hell of a thread bump, but i have right at 4' of my 5' left. About the same as if you put a standard 20" wide box in a long bed

    When i look inside MOST of these boxes these all say made by "Better Built".. If that is the case why do most company's charge higher than others!

    I just sold this one for $125 It came on the truck and i bought an Undercover...nice toolbox though UWS all aluminum. Deep b ut still had about 6" of free space under it.


    I figured with the double cab I had plenty of lockable interior space for a box of stuff and a lot more under the Tonneau.
