    theres mine. I picked it up off CL for $60. Not lo-pro but fits my DC. Not sure of brand either sorry. Didnt have any labels on it.

    Just check out the dimensions on the box compared to the ones for your bed to see if one you are looking at will fit.

    Mine is for sale if you want it.. You live in Tennessee and I live in north Alabama.. I could meet you half way I guess.. I dont think it was built specifically for our trucks but it fits pretty darn good.. The only thing is that you have to screw it directly into your bed unless you buy one of those screwless kits..

    Look at build!
    If it fits an ext cab it should fit a DC, ive seen it done before...only difference is the wheel well humps but most toolboxes these days are made to compensate for it or you can do like i did and get a box that sits up about the wheel wells then build a box to go under the tool box to hold stuff like recovery gear and chains, tarps etc...
    & IMO i wouldnt do a lo pro cause i dont like the big gap thats under the back window on first gens but thats just me...heres mine
