    OME lift, 285x75R17 BF Goodrich Tires, fuel boost wheels, tube steps, window visors, tint and windshield strip, bug deflector, tool box, Katzkin seats with all 4 heated, husky exact contour floor mats, 7" touch screen, metal tech color keyed bumper
    I am wondering which tool box to put in my new 2016 double cab short box TRD. I definitely want a black, diamond plate aluminum Weather Guard, cross over style, but not sure which model to get. I don't like the huge oversize/deep top on it, I also don't like the very thin look.
    I have not had experience with the deep tool boxes that have the 3 step down look and sit all the way on the bed.
    Does anyone have any ideas or know which model it is that fits good and looks the best?

    I tell ya, I been looking all over and I'm well aware of UWS. I currently have a Husky which is the UWS TBS-64-A-LP knockoff. I really don't want a crossover.
    I'm leaning towards a inbed chest; 36"long x 17"tall x 20"wide from ProTech. I want to mount bed rail to the bedfloor and T-nut it to that. My figuring says it will be 3/4" shy of the bed rail.
    Do you have a longbed or shortbed? Longbed gives you a few more options...

    One I found interesting was AeroKlas. No Tacoma fitment, but they have Hilux, Frontier, etc.

    Thx for the rapid response, I've been thinking about it and agree with Phoosa I don't want to loose any bed space, have you guys seen any smaller boxes that bolt to the side of the bed? I remember a member posting a pic but don't recall the thread.

    There is a box that is much narrower (9", maybe 12"). Betterbuilt (lowes) is the brand I believe. However, its only available in chrome now. Black was discontinued.

    I'm looking for a weather guard flat black low profile if anyone has a hook up for one. Seems cheapest i have found is like 680 plus shipping and handling.

    Yes that is the deep; but that's not the correct picture. Fits '05-'15; should fit a '16.
    I bought a UWS TBC-42-W-BLK.

    Amazon says the 63 won't fit but if you check the spec's on the UWS web site you'll see it does fit.
