    I can recommend the UWS TBC-42-W-BK for an in-the-bed box. I like it more than the one it replaces below. It's cleaner looking, has more usable cubic ft of storage, doesn't eat up space on the side for recovery tools...
    The lock pins required some adjustment; not a big deal.

    Mounted on bed rail.

    For a crossover-style, I can recommend the Husky-UWS knock off. It's built just as well as a UWS and I prefer the pull handles over the UWS latches. It's about $100 cheaper too.
    I used 1/2 the parts from a Better Built Grip Rite and 3/8" t-slot nuts to mount it.

    This is the exact box I'm looking to get when mine comes in. I had one similar ( UWS-48 ) in my Ford for years and it worked out well. They hold a lot of stuff and you can easily slide them rite out if you need the use of the whole bed. It's hard to tell by your pics but will you be able to put a tonneau cover on with this box or does it sit to high up to the bed rails?

    I like that idea once I get a tonneau cover. Any idea of which pelican model those are?
