    Ok well i have a 2009 Prerunner DCLB and ive been looking at toolboxes for the last month. I am looking for a black slimline preferably. 1st i decide on a kobalt one from lowes and having it powdercoated when it arrives. So i order that and it comes in after about a week andd a weld is messed up. So i return it at lowes and decide to just fork out the money to buy one that is already powder coated. I order one from cabelas and wait another week for it to get here and i try putting it in my truck and it doesnt fit...:mad: I guess i forgot to look at the length of the toolbox the second time. So now i have to return that one. It doesnt look like they offer a toolbox that fits my truck. So i start looking at the UWS slimlines and i havent been able to find one that is black and fits my truck. The Cabelas box was 63" length and the kobalt(which fit) was 60" length. Stupid mistake on my part. Anyone have any suggestions?

    05+ Tacomas use a 63 " box but the bottom corners are angled to miss the wheel wells. The 60" box will fit the width barely but idk about wheelwell clearance. 60" is for older/smaller trucks. UWS makes a nice box [​IMG]

    Your right, the cabelas length is 69". The toolbox you have looks good. Where did you get it from?

    Also i do not see your toolbox on the UWS website? I only see the rectangular boxes.
